Sandy’s Coming

That’s from Nasa. From space! That’s a big storm.

We’re all stocked up here in Brooklyn with food and gallons of water. June is pretty anxious and keeps hoping in the window and then as soon as the wind starts up she hops back out and comes over to me meowing. Like I can do something about it.

Last night on the news, Bloomburg suggested filling up a pot of water so I did. Or, you know, all of them. Better safe than sorry.

I got some food, some wine, some beer, lots of books and if we don’t lose power, some movies. Hopefully we won’t – the power lines here are underground so if we do lose power, that means Brooklyn is really flooded.

I’m a little worried about this:

The whole front of the building is covered in scaffolding from construction work. That can withstand 99 mile an hour winds right? Right?

Saw this on twitter – made me laugh.

HURRICANE SANDY @XHurricaneSandyIF UR HAVING WEATHER PROBLEMS I FEEL BAD FOR YOU SON I GOT 99MPH WINDS AND IMA GIVE YOU SOME. #nyc #Sandy

Just heard on the radio they closed the Brooklyn Battery Tunnel  and the Holland Tunnel. Bloomburg is talking about 9 feet surges at the Long Island Sound. 15-20 feet waves. Ugh.

Guess, we’ll see you on the flip side, huh? Stay safe kids.

Over and out.

I live in Brooklyn which is good except when it’s not which is horrid. I’ve been writing for awhile, and have some stuff published and some stuff not. I don’t like when people refer to pets as their children and I can’t resist a handful of cheez-its when offered. I have a burning desire to go to Antarctica, specifically to the South Pole so I can see where Robert Falcon Scott died. I like to read books. I like to write stories and poems. I even wrote some novels. You can read them.

    1. Thanks! We made it through with no real damage here but some other neighborhoods are in really bad shape. We didn’t lose power (yet) but our phone is out and internet is limited. Outside has been nothing but sirens.
