Tropical Storm Irene Brings Ducky Weather
With Hurricane Irene we planned for the worst and ended up with the best. We were on the far eastern edge of the storm and had a short spell of steady rain followed by a very windy night. The power went on and off repeatedly (maybe 25 times?) for hours – the longest spell was about an hour. The whole thing was a bit anti-climatic as storms go.
The ducks, on the other hand, were thrilled with the weather. It took a rumble of thunder to scoot them out of their pool. As it turns out, Irene brought perfect ducky weather!
