Nancy here: Yesterday at 9:30am we were at the beach greeting Hurricane Irene. At that time the rains started and the winds began to blow.
Well, exactly 24 hours later, the winds have died down and the rain finally stopped. We are please to say, it was a mild storm here in Murrells Inlet, SC!!
Prior to the storm, Bill moved all the furniture into the screen room.
The biggest threat is the back of our house which butts up against the golf course. Between us and the golf course is a buffer of mostly Pine Trees. We do worry about one of them coming down on the house. However, nothing like that happened, just lots of twigs and water.
We live in a development called Pebble Creek. However, there is no creek…that is until today. Irene left us with a small creek behind the house along the golf course ;o))
If you look out front, you would have no idea we had ever had a storm.
Twenty-four hours after she arrived, the sun is beginning to break through the last bands of Hurricane Irene.She was a big storm with medium winds and lots of water. Fortunately the damage was minimal here.
As we watch the last bands head north, we will ask her to be just as gentle on our friends and family in her path!!
