We started feeling the effects of Hurricane Irene in Greenville, NC on the afternoon of Friday August 26th. She finally left the area by early Sunday August 28th. Luckily our home did not have any damage just one big messy yard. I wish I could say the same for others in the area but unfortunately that wasn't the case. Irene flooded many parts of Eastern NC and took down trees and power lines as well. Eric and I drove around Sunday morning to take a look at some of the damage the storm did to our town. After our drive we got to work on cleaning up the yard. We worked all day long and finished around 7:00 pm and had a huge pile of debris to show for our hard work.
