Hurricane Irene woke me around 11 last night when the power went out- my air conditioner makes a really annoying beeping noise when it shuts off. Power came back on a few minutes later, then spent the next hour blinking on and off. She made landfall in NJ not too long ago, but she seems to have weakened. So far, so good for me. But not everyone in the area has fared so well. I've had the radio on since I got up and will leave it on until this storm rolls out.

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!
