Unless you’ve been living under a rock (or in Ripley, NY sans TV) you were probably, like the rest of us, glued to The Weather Channel last weekend as Irene made her slow and destructive march up the Eastern coast. And, in true 24-hour news channel fashion, it had us here in Philly frantically calling relatives to stay with “just in case,” running to the grocery store for water, canned foods, batteries & wine, pulling out candles (even though it wasn’t an anniversary), and wondering “do I really want to climb up and tape those windows?”
And, while the lady didn’t move north without leaving her mark, we here in downtown Philadelphia were, gratefully, spared the worst of her wrath.
We were, however, graced with so much rain that puddle jumping was inevitable.
And we LOVE puddle jumping!
