Driving around North Branford after Hurricane Irene had moved on, there was plenty of evidence that a storm had come through. While the road were mostly clear of large debris, sticks and a layer of leaves coated the asphalt.
Small streams were now full and fast-flowing; tree limbs were scattered across yards with some weighing down on power lines; rows of corn were bent sideways from the wind; fire and caution tape or big orange cones cordoned off some streets; trees were uprooted; and, at one home on Bailey Drive, a tree had snapped across the peak of a roof with a branch piercing through the roof and kitchen ceiling, coming to rest on top of the refrigerator.
