    Weird - we had our power all day where I am. Seems the storm veered a bit to the west. There was quite a bit of wind, some rain, some fallen branches.

    I went to the beach with my camera to take pictures of the massive damage we received here.

    Except, there wasn't really any, all things considered. Okay, there were some downed branches and a tree or two. A 10 foot section of a pier was destroyed, and one business lost their lighted sign. But other than that, the things at the beach that made me want to pull out my camera were things inappropriate for this thread.

    just heard that the reason the hurricane never got to slam into
    new york as predicted was that obama issued a preemtive F16
    strike late on saturday night as irene was over atlantic city.

    she was fatally wounded with a shot to the eye and her clouds
    subsequently blown to smithereens. irene was buried at sea in
    keeping with the isobaric tradition. apparently, us citizens need
    never fear any storm of any kind again. ever.
    every normal man must be tempted, at times,
    to spit on his hands, hoist the black flag,
    and begin slitting throats.

    What I want to know is, what country are we going to retaliate against for the damage done to our shores?

    Lightbulb FEMA Assistance

    Some of you might find this useful. If you have damages or had to evacuate due to Huricanne Irene, here's some information from the Federal Emergency Management Agency's website (FEMA):

    FEMA encourages all individuals who have damages or have had to evacuate because of a federally declared disaster to apply for disaster assistance.

    There are three ways to register for FEMA/state assistance.

    1. You may register online at www.disasterassistance.gov, or
    2. Call the toll-free registration number at 1-800-621-FEMA (3362). If you have a speech disability or hearing loss and use a TTY, call 1-800-462-7585 directly; if you use 711 or Video Relay Service (VRS), call 1-800-621-3362, or
    3. If Disaster Recovery Centers have been established in your area, they can assist you in the registration process.
    After you register, you will receive a pamphlet in the mail titled, "Help After A Disaster, An Applicant's Guide to the Individuals and Households Program." Please read it carefully; this pamphlet should answer most of your questions and provide information about other programs that may be able to assist in your recovery efforts.

    New England did not handle the rain well. Imagine if it had still been hurricane force winds as well.

    Here's a video of near where my mom's family is. They are all okay. This is a place on the river we used to go to see water skiing. In the top picture, the edge of the water is usually by where the boats are in the back right, but you can see how far the river is swollen.
