The photos here are chilling reminders of that awful time last August. Like many, we are still repairing the damage from Irene and that following Halloween. We just finished repainting up the exposed pieces of our basement floor with a heavyweight waterproof paint and there is still much to do. Most of our broken trees have been pruned or felled, but there are still some needing attention Even though our home is on a hill and away from nearby rivers, the property is flat and sits on a high water table allowing few outlets for natural remediation. Every time I ride past the SMR-513 crossing, I remember those photographs of the flooded intersection and hope we are spared from the wrath of this hurricane season.
