Hurricane Update

It's 4 o'clock in the afternoon, and it's been raining all day.

The wind is starting to pick up, and the clouds are getting darker.

Hurricane Irene is on it's way.

We've been tracking the storm online, and our area only has a tropical storm warning at this point. (Updates are coming in so fast!)

We think that this is pretty exciting as far as weekends go, and while we think we'll be fine, we are taking a few precautions.

We've tied the bikes down, and brought a few things inside.

We are enjoying the flash flood warning updates, because they strike fear into your heart. (YOU WILL ALL DROWN! DON'T DRIVE ANYWHERE!)  We live by a marina, but we also have a drainage basin right behind our house, so we're going to agree that they cancel each other out.

MOSTLY, I'm concerned about the power situation and bored kids.


Last night, I stayed up putting together activity kits for the kids and this morning, we braved the wind and went to the library.

I made sure that ALL of the laundry was done, because I cannot handle the thought of running out of clean underwear.  

We have plenty of food storage, thanks to my righteous upbringing, and as I stood in line at the grocery store on Friday, among chaos and near hysteria, I was really glad that I had been taught to always be prepared for an emergency.

All in all, we're as ready as we're going to be.

Come on Irene.
