Irene II

Here are some more shots of the storm. Including Finn hiding under a quilt (handmade by Mike's mom) and our road that looks like a lake. Also there's Mike using the chainsaw to clear out the driveway so we could go to the road. Midori is (wisely) afraid of the chainsaw. Imagining the failed attempts to get to the nearest trauma center (only 30 miles and the hudson river away) through roads all blocked with downed power lines and trees. Though what she is imagining in that shot of her watching the wind as she sits in the window is the trees falling and cracking Mike in the skull or breaking his back because he's out chainsawing in the middle of a windstorm instead of sheltered in a log structure like his smart dog and partner.
