UPDATE (Sunday early AM): Mom is fine. They lost power for about 8 hours and are still without cable and phone but are fine with no property damage except some broken tree limbs. YAY!
So we almost died of heatstroke at the baseball game and left after the fourth inning.
My daughter caught a summer cold and so my SIL and niece joined us at the ballgame.
Mom thinks everyone is silly and they have no plan to evacuate.
Mom's procedure went very well and that part is good.
I hope Irene turns east and goes away.
