The Power and The Glory

Irene has made her departure from the United States and continues to weaken.  Her power was felt up and down the entire Eastern Seaboard.  At least twenty-four lives were taken by the storm as she slowly tracked northward.  Many will speculate over whether cities like New York had over-estimated the threat from this storm.  Others will mourn their losses, and attempt to find solace in their vow to rebuild and continue on.

No matter what “number” we gave her power.  Her lasting effects will be felt for some time in the entire region.  In my internet travels I found this home shot picture of the storm as it descended on the North Carolina coastline.  I was struck by the raw and savage power the picture presented.  While it was fearsome, the picture of the moment was also quite moving with its beauty.

As Irene slowly dies out, her legacy behind her will be long felt.
