The White Cottage R.I.P.

This is what's left of The White Cottage, my childhood ice cream stand. It was whacked on the forehead by Irene this past Sunday. When I was little I'd go there with my family and after devouring a vanilla soft serve cone, I'd run down the hillside so I could throw rocks in the lazy river that gurgled along behind it. That lazy river seems to have gotten the last laugh.

Here's a picture of the nearby appliance store:

My hometown got completely abused.

There are more images of flood damage at this Facebook page.

my condolences bro. I'm finally back on today as of 4 a.m. , after 7 days without power thanks to Chain Electric based out of Ol' Miss.
As far as Irene went, I knew she was coming so I made ready best I could. Charged up all 9 Ryobi one batts for flashlights & radio, got gas, candles, boarded up the front windows.
I was fortunate, I only lost food in the fridge,part of my garden and a couple of vinyl shutters, others around me weren't so lucky.
I was in the dark literally and figuratively as far as the news went. I heard about flooding in Vermont, but since NYC didnt get hit by the storm that badly the Media made it seem that Irene was a dud. The storm coverage was so NYC/ Mayor Bloomberg centric it was nauseating.
I think the funniest thing to come out of this, is when I built a pergola this spring for family they thought the Hurricane ties were overkill, well they are happy I put them on now. : )
Hopefully they rebuild the snackbar looks like a heck of a place to get a burger and cone, any place that serves Giffords icecream is worth a stop.
