With all the media hype about Hurricane Irene, I am a bit surprised that it wasn't as big as it was predicted but I have to say I am thankful. It's better to be safe than sorry.
I just don't understand why it always has to be advertised to be bigger than it is. But then again, there was Hurricane Katrina and I guess we just learned our lesson from there. The people were evacuated on time and a lot of precaution was taken to keep people safe.
All I can say now is - - I survived Hurricane Irene 2011!!
