Well, my weekend with Irene ended being more like a weekend at Bernie’s. My area of NYC got some rain and some wind and not much else. The toughest part of the whole thing was banging my head on a cupboard door while searching for extra bloody batteries. Still, I know there are millions without power, and there has been flooding and damage in other areas so I feel incredibly fortunate a little wind and rain is all I had to deal with.
Thanks to everyone who sent their best wishes! Clearly, they worked.
Now I’m off to the grocery store to return 35 gallons of bottled water and a forklift’s worth of Twinkies.
