What an absolutely eerie day. It’s after sunset and quite dark. The wind outside is howling more loudly than I’ve ever heard it before. Like millions of other east coasters we are battening down the hatches as Hurricane Sandy approaches.
We have some extra food, water, and batteries—and chocolate—and we’ll try to remain as safe and comfortable as we we can be over the next couple of days. The biggest immediate threats are the tall, old trees that surround our house; hopefully, they’ll bend rather than fall. We may lose electricity and our Internet connection but I have my fingers crossed…
I hope you all are someplace safe and secure. I wanted to jot this note off because I didn’t know when I could check in again. If you are affected by the storm, please check in here, too, by telling us where you are and leaving a comment.
If you are someplace sunny with calmer weather than New York has right now, I hope you’ll poke around at the new redesign of this blog. It still needs a little more tinkering but it’s getting there.
Warm regards, Irene
