Kudos to mother nature for not only setting up New York City with an earthquake this past week, but we're also being blessed with a hurricane as well. Two natural disasters in one week, why thank you! My neighborhood in Brooklyn is right on the east river, and the city has mandated people within certain areas evacuate. Somehow when you look at the evacuation zones, my little neighborhood is considered fine to ride the storm out, yet is surrounded in just a few blocks by multiple evacuation zones. So the hubby, yorkiepoo, kitty and I will be riding it out here at home. Today after work we stocked up on our non-perishables and other items we'll need. We're also well set on wine, magazines, books, and our electronics batteries are charged and ready to go. I'm looking forward to catching up on reading, writing some blog posts, spending time with my husband, and hopefully not dying. Bring it on Irene, bring it on!
