Hurricane Earl from the "Eye" of the International Space Station
As we prepare for our vacation, it's batten down the hatches in preparation for Hurricane Earl. While it's projected path doesn't appear to be a direct hit on Boston, we could still sustain some heavy wind and rain.
Coincidentally, yesterday we had the remaining dead limbs trimmed from one of our trees (actually the tree the raccoons were in). There were some branches too close to the wires coming into the house. I wanted to take care of them before winter but the timing was also right for Earl.
Hopefully the storm will go out to sea. I also don't want it to ruin our vacation. Most likely we'll be traveling with it up the coast of Maine. We're leaving on Saturday.
