Hurricane Irene Hitting the Northeast

I spoke to my mother this morning (she is in Ridgewood, NJ) and she seemed unimpressed by the hurricane but was still scared to take the dogs outside.

My brother in Providence, Wayland Square, Rhode Island just sent me these pictures.  They look pretty serious, right?

I know everyone is getting too much information on TV…but here is what I am receiving down here in Belize.

 Oh man!  The park!

According to my brother:  Irene is no joke.
