I've been humming "Come on Aileen" for the last three days, just waiting for the hurricane to hit. I've been up since 4:30am, thanks to my little Punk
. She's been restless since I got home from work yesterday. Shadow
, however, remains serene. We're supposed to see the worst conditions overnight tonight and into early tomorrow morning. Flooding is a big concern around here; fortunately I live in a 2nd floor apartment so don't anticipate much (if any) damage. This will be the first hurricane I've weathered alone. But! I'm stocked up on candles, batteries, and Chef Boyardee should I lose power. Cell phone is fully charged, there are fresh batteries in my radio, laundry and dishes are done, and there's a full tank of gas in the car. So, I think I'm set. Now to get ready for my step-sister's surprise 30th b-day party.
To everyone in Irene's path- STAY SAFE!
P.S. OH! Almost forgot to mention that I signed up for Aikido lessons at Bucks County Aikido
. Lessons start Sept 6. Very excited!
