Irene Came and Went

This weekend, Hurricane Irene decided to come and give Philadelphia a few (or 5.73″) inches of rain and a good deal of flooding on the Schuylkill River.  The river runs 1/2 mile from my apartment (and down a hill).  This afternoon, I took a walk down the hill because of rumors that it had flooded over on to Kelly Drive and West River Drive.  The trail around the River is used for the Rock n Roll Philadelphia Half Marathon coming up next month and the Philadelphia Marathon and Half Marathon in November.  My place is fine, no damage or power loss, but this is what I found on my adventure to the river!

This guy didn't get the hurricane memo so he didn't move his car

Trees were snapped in half (West River Drive)...

Hopefully all my East Coasters made it through in one piece and if there was damage done, it will be fixed quickly!  I can know say Philadelphia’s experienced Hurricanes, tornados and earthquakes all in the same week.  Let’s just hope we don’t get the fires too.
