Come on Irene!

So the hurricane came and went and it really wasn't as bad as they were making it out to be. In fact, if we had a generator it would have been an enjoyable storm to watch. Since we do not have a generator (yet...we WILL be prepared next time) and our power went out, our basement flooded. There was nothing too valuable down there but it's just a royal pain the tookus to clean it up. We have to get rid of the two rugs down there (they were free so not a big deal) and possibly some old furniture. At least it will motivate us to clean it up and make it nice for when some friends visit in a few weeks. I just hope the wet basement smell goes away soon! I would have taken pictures of the storm but it didn't really hit us until after dark. And our basement is scary enough without the water so I didn't take pictures of that either. I'm talking wood paneling and peel and stick floors scary. My plan is to at the very least paint the ugly paneling. I might post pictures of the before if I have a halfway decent after to show.
