Hurricane Irene – Update 2

It is 10:20Am and the electric went out for about 10 minutes around 9. Not hurricane related as this happens alot these days just for about 10 minutes. I think they are doing some type of construction and shut the electric off for this.

Just got a big wind burst. My ladder is on the balcony ready to put up the plastic and it blew over. The guys on the scaffolding are taking it down right now. I heard a few big “¡diablos!” being yelled after the gust. I think it was the guys on the scaffolding. They are working fast taking it down.

We had a shot of rain but now nothing. The sky is getting darker as I am typing.

The third picture you can see the sea in the distance. Hard to make out in the picture but I can see some movement in the water and it is really gray looking.

The sky from my window north towards Parque Colon. The tree is waving slightly.
