Dexter here, happy to report that Irene was somewhat subdued by the time she arrived at our estate. We were very fortunate that all we suffered was a long power outage. We even got to play tennis ball halfway through.
Well, one of us did, others had to rest after dragging themselves all the way out into the yard.
The Relentlessly Huge wanted me to show you his dumb elephant foot. It ballooned up again on Friday. I think he just wanted to go to the vet and get noms. The vet aspirated his gigantic leg and sent the juices away to the lab, otherwise known as the Mango foodables production line, I think.
You can see that by Sunday it was already shrunken down a bit thanks to the wonder of antibiotics.
Being a brave chap, I accompanied momma up to the observation tower to survey the damage.
OMG! I am adorable!
Hey! Bigfoot! We're up here! Neener, neener, neener.
I persuaded momma to go exploring once it stopped raining. Check out this tree right across the street from our estate. Bam!
Even though momma slept through the really bad parts (can't miss Sunday nap time), she still managed to make a bit of a movie. You can watch it here. I warn you. It is really long and she prattles on like she is Sally Weather Girl throughout. Somebody really likes the sound of her own voice.
We're sending all good thoughts from our estate to yours for those families who were not so fortunate as we in avoiding the worst of Irene.
