It is always good to stop and send a thanks out to the universe or whatever place you send your gratitude too, we have so very much to be grateful for living here in the USA.

I am so glad your house is standing and safe. I am praying for all those who are being affected by Irene tonight, for their homes and lives.

I am grateful to be safe, as are all the animals. Getting to work will be tricky, lots of roads are closed.

You've taken care of your home this last year and now it's taking care of you. I'm glad everyone at Cold Antler Farm is safe and dry for now and hope the worst is over.

I've been following your blog today. I'm so glad you are safe and that your animals are too. That river looks so scary!! Hang in there dear Jenna.

You have now made it through a frigid winter and a hurricane as a farmer. That dance with Mother Nature is something a lot of people don't think about with farming but you were so prepared and it paid off. Glad to know the CAF family is safe.

Jenna, I so get this. When it is especially inclement, be it seering heat or wet and cold, I with my very small footprint home feel blessed. I do not live in the flood plains in my area or on ground prone to liquefaction so I feel blessed. Wild fires are often several miles away and stay there so I feel blessed. I get it.

When Andrew came through, the power companies did an amazing job of clearing the roads and making them safe for travel. Take care, Jenna.

It is a great house! Be safe, Jenna. I know in the Catskills a lot of roads are still flooded out. If you don't have to be at work, I'd skip in and try again tomorrow.

Glad that you are safe and that is everything is okay. The video was scary. I am one of the lucky ones in CT with power.

I was thinking of exactly this last night when I saw all of the devastation in VT. Not sure if the area where you lived had problems but I thought "man, this last year and a half has been a rough one for her, but this move has turned out to be the best possible thing." And then I must admit I took a little joy in wondering if the VT cabin lawn looks any "worse" now than they said it did before ;-) Wrong, wrong, wrong, I know!

I've been silently following your blog for a short while now, and just wanted to say how glad I am that you seem to be keeping safe through the storm. Keep your chin up, and know that this too, will eventually pass. :)

I know what you mean. I put mine on the market two weeks ago, but with the way it made it through this storm, I may just pull it back off. My cellar was as dry as the desert despite a day of tropical storm rain. So glad you, the sheep, Jasper, the chickens and rabbits all came through it just fine.

i feel lucky as well jenna, like you i am up high on the mountain and feel very lucky to be in this house. I am so very sad at what has happened here in vermont, my town and surrounding towns.

I am also very thankful for being safe however, we did not fare as well as you. We lost power for about 18 hours - long enough for us to end up with 2 feet of standing water in the basement. I didn't realize a generator was a necessity in this house - now I do. It will be my next purchase. The wind also destroyed much of our upcoming "harvest" including corn, sunflowers, beans, eggplant, and peppers.

I'm glad that you and yours are well. I was worried when you posted that video...

I bet you didn't make it to work. Rte 313, 7, 7a all closed. I drove 125 miles trying to get to Arlington today. Not a good time to be a wastewater operator at all!

As are we, Jenna. As are we. :o)

Let us know how you're doing when you can.

I did get to work, was here a little after 8. I went straight down 22 to White Creek, cut across 68 and then 67 and then went up 7A, took an extra half hour.

Glad you're okay! I was thinking of you during the storm!

So I guess the White Creek Stream didn't cause any problems. After looking at Arlington on the videos I wondered how you were going to do it. Lots to be said for living on the side of a NY mountain huh?

Watched the CBS evening news and immediately thought of you so I got to the computer and your blog asap. I am glad you are safe. I'm sure the trouble and inconveinece are not over. Take heart and be encouraged. Thoughts and prayers for your community.

Wow!! Jenna we just saw you on National News, well your hand. They had two clips of your video of the car going down the river. I heard you say "Here she comes". I told my husband "That Jenna--That Jenna's Video" That was a really good video you made.

Steak and Eggs, that is not Jenna's video. She pulled the video from youtube's "mobilady." Jenna just reposted it here. It is amazing, though.

Sorry about that. It sounded like Jenna's voice.

Not my video, didn't realize my area made national news though! And thank you all for checking on me. Makes me so happy
