Hurricane Irene In Troy!?

I just looked at the projected path of hurricane Irene and it looks like it is going to go through Troy, NY where my sister Julia is. Troy, NY has been getting alot of rain lately (unlike here in Houston) and hurricane Irene is expected to bring even more. That's not good. Hopefully if Irene moves away quickly it won't have enough time to cause Troy's streets to flood. Also they think Irene is still going to be a category 1 hurricane when it goes through the state of NY so, they might also have some power outages. My sister Julia lives in a 1800's apartment so, I don't think she'll have to worry about the flooding but, she might have to worry about the wind knocking her power out. I hope her apartment has generators. I remember having to wait three weeks for our power to come back on after we had hurricane Ike. There was nothing to do but, listen to the radio. Maybe Irene will move more to the east and miss Troy. I guess will just have to wait and see.


  1. Hoping everyone will be safe with whatever way Irene decides to go!


  2. Ya, I hope they are preparing for it. : )
