Way Back When-esday: Come On, Irene...

Dateline: September 2003
Twins' Age: Barely 2
Home's Age: Nearly 80

From the picture above, one may not be able to readily discern the sidewalk and roadway in front of our beloved Dutch Colonial home. Why? The greenery bludgeoned from the trees the night before, thanks to a sassy li'l hurricane by the name of Isabel, obscured the paved aspects of our neighborhood. Our home? Without power for days, but mercifully, unscathed.

This weekend, we're bracing for yet another fearsome "I"-name, She-Storm Irene.

Our twosome---and their mom and dad---warmed up for the weekend's weather antics mere hours ago with an unexpected 5.9 Richter-scale registering earthquake.

Staring down storms past and present (and shoring up against the "shakes!") warms my heart this mid-week!

Why don't you dive into your digital files and play along with Way Back When-esday?

Seek out an overlooked snapshot or scan a scrapbook find...share an image you might not otherwise. Tell the tale and place a post on your blog. Be sure and link back to participate in the web-wide reverie...and please leave a comment when you do!

Hang in there Cheryl! We'll be thinking of you this weekend as Irene comes ashore.
