I'm not sure if Irene would qualify as a one-hit wonder, but she is already serving as an inspiration for song. Take a listen here.
I left Manasquan, NJ (one mile from beach)to find safety in Hillsborough with daughter. Manasquan dodged the bullet, no outages or flooding in my neighborhood but flooding all around Hillsborough...rivers and canals etc. Came home Tues. am...took an hour to get out of the area....went down 287 and Parkway with no trouble. Relative left Brielle to go home in Bedminster to a dark house and flooded basement. Strange storm.....skipped the usual beach areas though there was flooding and trees down in local towns.
