Hurricane Irene

Seana and I try to do some sort of sight seeing every weekend.  This past weekend was reserved for Rhode Island's Misquamicut beach which was recommended by a reader of our blog and a trip into New York City to see the MOMA (Museum of Modern Art).  

Well as the world knows, the weather had a different plan for us.  One that involved buying water and non-perishable food items and staying in. Our little apartment in Trumbull was in the path of the eye of Hurricane Irene.

We were blessed that it downgraded to a tropical storm before reaching us and even more blessed to some how not get hit with the violent winds and torrential down pours... we never lost our power and didn't sustain any damage from downed trees.  We made the most of our time in.  We watched some redbox movies and streamed some shows on Hulu ate popcorn and S'mores!

Much of Connecticut was not as lucky, most lost power including a couple spots I had hoped to take Maggie on Monday.  I attempted to visit the Zoo which was closed and then the Stepping Stones Childrens Museum also closed due to power outages... so we played in a playground instead.

The power outages affected some well into the week, I tried to take Maggie to Baby Bebop on Tuesday but the library it is held at still had no power.  Thankfully the Zoo was back in business and we had a place to hang out.

Hopefully this next weekend we catch up on some of the sights!

Here are a few photos of Maggie at the playground.
