We had planned to go to see the Statue of Liberty on Sunday but from the predictions of Hurricane Irene it looks like that will be exactly when she will be around New York so there go our plans plus the money we spent on our ferry tickets (they are non refundable).
I have started walking again after having taken off a week and half because of my back hurting. I had Hannah walk with me on Monday and both she and David went along with me on Wednesday to Ferncliff Nature Preserve. We had to navigate a downed tree over the road both ways and I have the bruises to prove it. Dave took some pictures and I will post them later.
Yesterday we went back to the Indian Steps Museum and took Dave with us this time. We enjoyed wandering around the museum then started to walk the nature trail to see the water fall. I walked a very small part and decided that I would attempt it as it was pretty steep and although I am in better shape than I was I still am not up to that quite yet. Maybe in a year. Dave and Hannah continued on an reported back that there were 2 downed trees on this trail and the waterfall wasn't flowing much at all. So I didn't miss much.
Of course the big news was our Earthquake on Tuesday. As everyone else in the household was driving in a car at the time, I was the only one that felt it. I didn't like it one bit. This is the second one that I was in as we had one when we lived in Indianapolis many years ago.
We watched this over the weekend

Dave really likes the Andy Hardy movies. They are kinda corny but cute too.
Stay dry every one!
