Irene's worst is in the rearview mirror, but the storm didn't pass through town without leaving her mark. Trees were down across town, but only route 305, Bloomfield Avenue, was closed due to flooding.
The Farmington River rose a bit, causing residents in Farmington to be evacuated, but the river's waters didn't breach its banks alongside Bart's and on Pleasant Street, an area usually vulnerable to flooding.
According to Connecticut Light and Power, 11 percent of Windsor households, that's just shy of 1,500 homes, lost power Sunday.
Shops were closed, and cancelations were ordered, but now that her worst is up, businesses are preparing to open up shop again.
"We will be opening at 3pm today. (weather permitting and as long as we have power)," the Facebook Page of The Dairy Bar in Windsor read around 1:30 p.m.
Grace Baptist Church also plans to open its doors. While the church's pastor, Jason Stephens, parked his car under the building's awning for protection, the church is opening up this afternoon for 3 p.m. services.
The storm shelter at L.P. Wilson was not opened, and the Emergency Operations Center in Town Hall closed as of 12:30 p.m.
