The streets of New York City were empty last night as I made my way back from dinner at around 11:30pm.  The wind had picked up and it was pouring with rain as I clung to my umbrella.  By this morning Hurricane Irene had been and gone and the high winds and destruction that were threatened thankfully did not materialise.  Other parts of the East Coast were not so lucky with reported power outages and plenty of flooding.
