Not a breathe of wind, the trees are unusually still.
Nicholas is probably the only person in New England who is embracing Irene's arrival. We were able to find an emergency backpack at Home Depot! He has added it to his collection. Inside the pack is an unbelievable array of emergency supplies. Things like light sticks, ponchos, even drinking water! He is beside himself with joy. Of course, candles are another necessity in case the lights go out...Nicholas could not be happier. He has assembled an array of his favorite candles to light if needed.
Leave it to Nicholas to always spread a little joy.
