Hello List
Just a quick note to let you know that we made it through hurricane Irene 
without problems here in Greenville NC. Greenville NC is about 70 miles 
inland from the coast of Eastern North Carolina. It started raining here 
around 19:00 PDT local time on Friday evening and did not stop until 20:00 
PDT Saturday evening. At one point we had wind around 40 MPH and gusts up to 
as high as 70 MPH. Our power dropped out several times on Saturday afternoon 
around 14:00 PDT but was only off for about 10 minutes. There have been many 
trees fall and much flooding so that many thousands of people have lost 
power in the area but, again, we have been extremely fortunate in that 
regard. Our cable TV and highspeed internet and email was down for about 24
