Hurricane Sandy and other news
Girl’s a coming.
We can see it in the trees.
They’re moving like they’re doing the shuffle.
I’m always unprepared when it comes to storms.
I mean really, we haven’t had it bad here in our part of NYC. We’re kinda inland, away from the ocean.
So glad I don’t live in Brooklyn anymore.
Our cupboards are stacked and i’ve got lots of water and toilet paper.
Yes toilet paper.
When you’ve got a family of 6, being sure you have enough toilet paper is essential.
My biggest worry, the possible lack of power.
Our power lines, unlike most of NYC, are above ground. here’s a view from my window this morning:
Notice how bright it was? Not sunny, but still bright.
Two hours later around 10am, standing at the same corner in the above picture:
Yep, she’s a coming and I’ll no doubt lose power due to those bastard poles and cables you see in the picture.
Just when I got the blog moved and functional again.
and yes! the blog has moved.
it was a hassle, i started at 4am yesterday and i’m not quite down yet.
still need to scrape up some social media icons and add some links to the sidebar.
while i was moving, noticed that Bluehost owes me a free domain.
Yes, V’s starting yet another site.
And the new blog name is…
eh, I’ll tell you later.
Anyway, the stats on this hurricane kinda freak me out.
the winds are promised to gust at 80 mph.
our mayor has shut down the transit system.
which has me very happy.
My insane teens were still planning to go to school.
I argued bitterly with them since the train runs above ground on a platform here in new york.
But the mayor is shutting it down this afternoon. So my girls have no choice now.
I dunno what’s up with these girls. It’s like turning down a snow day.
though we’re away from the ocean, we’ve got a river nearby that will no doubt flood and maybe back up the sewer systems.
and my biggest issue? well it goes back to the power.
Can you imagine hours and hours or maybe days in a house with two teens, a year old and a 3 year old and no internet or tv?
I can already hear the whines.
“There’s nothing to do”
“She’s looking at me”
“I’ve read all my books”
Pray for me people.
Pray for me.
