I already made a post about Irene on the New York blog, but as the storm has progressed updates are necessary. Here is a video of what Bangor, Maine is dealing with as my cat and I record Hurricane Irene’s current progress.

We still have electricity, but Facebook statuses of friends in my hometown of Dover, New Hampshire are showing that they have lost power. I have not lost power in a very long time.

Today is the final day of my Summer Vacation and Hurricane Irene might be trying to sabotage that.
