Clearly Irene was more of a tropical storm than a real Hurricane. Today Delmar had a number of trees and tree limbs down and some flooding still in the streets but it could have been a lot worst. People were generally picking up tree branches and limbs or just wandering around looking for damage. Those that live in Delaware are no doubt wondering how they are going to get rid of them since the State no longer allows them to go to the landfill.
I noticed this house that backs on Wood Creek had about 8 boats in the yard so I guess they were expecting the creek to rise.
