Digital Re-cap of my Weekend Hurricane Style!

I'd like to shout out a big thanks to all my new blog and twitter followers. I am slowly making my way around to all of my fellow campaigner's blogs.  I am usually on top of these things, but Irene dealt me her no-power card which pummeled me into virtual darkness for the better part of the weekend.   It did make for some exciting times though, especially for those of us who refused to sit home and wait it out.  As promised to my friends in the mid-west who have never quite experience a hurricane, here's my digital re-cap.

Dock is fine, boat -- yeah not so much
Yes that boat is mowing down a small Boston Whaler

Took them over three hours to get this boat hoisted back into the harbor.  And yes, I watched the whole thing,
This one is going to be tricky -- no way, save the water, to get a crane in to move it.

And for those of you who wanted a more interactive feel to the storm, I have posted a video here.  Forgive the jiggling camera in the middle of the video.  It's kind of hard to stand completely still when it'sblowing over 70mph!

  3. We were lucky here on the Maine coast; it blew inland and pretty much missed us entirely.

  5. Whoa. Those are really, really cool photos! Brave of you to go out and take them instead of fleeing or cowering at home.

  7. I feel your without-power pain. Can you believe how windy it was? And the storm was over a hundred miles from the MA coast!

  8. Trisha, those pictures are crazy! And congrats on having an agent, that's excellent. I pitched a novel to Ginger Clark at a conference once, she was great. I'm a fellow Campaigner, just dropping in to say hi. I write YA romances including paranormal, fantasy, and contemporary. Great to meet you!
