The late-summer cricket chorus seems exceptionally loud at 6:21 a.m.   Are they chirping a sort-of last hurrah before the approaching hurricane?  A blanket of peace seems to hover over the land here in South Jersey during the early morning hours.  The sky is totally over-cast as a gentle rain begins to fall. It’s very hard to believe that a dangerous hurricane will be arriving in a matter of hours.  Yesterday I took pictures of my flower and vegetable gardens, to document what they looked like during August 2011, pre-Irene.  I’m hoping that come Monday, the gardens will still be standing.
