Last week was Jason's vacation week so we made arrangements for Grandpa to come visit us in Hershey! I'm not going to lie...we were pretty excited to have our first visitor at our new home in Hershey. Unfortunately, Hurricane Irene decided to come up the East Coast and throw a wrench in our weekend plans.
On Friday when I got off work, I experienced quite a bit more traffic than normal. Most of the license plates were New York, Rhode Island, New Jersey and all the states that were in the direct path of Hurricane Irene. When I got home, I noticed that our apartment complex was taking precautions for the hurricane too. Tarps were put up in front of all the lower complexes to prevent flooding--it made for an eyesore but I think the tenants were happy to have a little bit of protection from the wind and rain.
Don't worry...Hurricane Irene did not stop the guys from having a good time! They were still able to get to the nearest electronic store and admire all the newer, bigger and better TVs.
Saturday and Sunday were spent indoors trying to stay out of the rain. We are about 1 1/2 hours away from Philadelphia so we just got some wind and rain. Thank goodness we didn't get anything too severe. Since moving to PA, we've experienced an earthquake and a hurricane all in one week. YIKES!
I think we both needed some good rest and relaxation--the dark rain clouds and large rain drops on the windows made for some great sleeping weather.
