Hurricane Irene

   I forgot to tell you on the last post (Sunday) that we were under hurricane warning waiting for Irene to strike. It was supposed to be a storm but when it passed through Puerto Rico it became a category 1 hurricane. It was a lot tougher on us than we thought, after all we hadn't had something as strong hit us since Hurricane George in 1998. I recorded  a few seconds through my window for all of you who haven't seen how a Hurricane looks like live. I recommend you lower the volume of your computers, otherwise you might wake up the entire family.


   This was taken while we still had electricity. After recording this, electrical power went off until last night. The worse part of the storm started after it left because the land was saturated and there were floods everywhere. Some dams had to let water escape to avoid a worse situation, there was chaos everywhere. This is what the hurricane looked like on the radars at 3am on monday. Scary right? Well get prepared because it's headed to the states.

  5. @ Diane: My family and I are all safe, electricity and water went off for a couple of days but now everything is falling in place.

    It's not much to ask but I was sick yesterday, I guess it was all the times I got wet and cold during the hurricane. I already saw the super cute surprise you had in your blog I loved it, thank you.

  6. @ Miss Lou: You should have taken a peek through your window. I always find it thrilling to see what happens outside during a storm.

  8. @ Another Diamond: We are safe, thank you very much for the good wishes. Hurricanes are scary but they're even scarier when they end up hitting harder than expected; sometimes we are not as prepared as we should. I hope everyone is getting prepared in the states because it caused a lot of trouble here while still a storm, I can't imagine what it will do as a category 3/4 hurricane. Have a nice day! and thanks for worrying.
