Off For One Final Run

We're loaded up on water, food, batteries, flashlights, candles.

Ice in the fridge to keep it cool for a while longer if the power goes. 

Got a solar powered radio with flashlight attached to get information.

Cell phone is charged.

Laptop is charged.

Got tarps and plastic just in case (dunno if that'll help if the windows break from the storm, but got them anyway.)

We're on a moderately high floor, so I worry a little about the windows if the wind gusts are as strong as advertised.

Doubt the tarps and plastic will save much in the case of a break, but what the hell, I feel better having them just in case.

I hope the power doesn't go out, but we're as ready as we can be for that if it happens.

I think we're as ready as we can be here - but I'm heading out for one last provisions run.

All right - I want to get a little junk food and a big soda.

Ssssh - don't tell the mayor.

Landfall set for Central New Jersey some time tomorrow night.

It's supposed to move very slowly across the area.

The pressure of the system is very, very low.

It's going to be intense.

I hope they're wrong about this tracking and forecast.

I do know one thing.

Tomorrow is not going to be a "regular work day" and people will not be going to work.

No matter what Bloomberg thinks.


  1. Glad you got the junk food and big soda--nothing is better for the psyche at times like these. Bloomberg is such an asshole.

  2. The ocean is angry at the arrogant attitude of Mayor Bloomberg. Watch out as the furies of an angry ocean takes a menacing jab at Bloomberg's imperial smugness. When the tide comes back in, we will all find out the emperor Bloomberg was swimming in the nude!

  3. Just had dinner, we're cleaning up, I'm making a nice cup of tea and now it's on to enjoy the relative calm and quiet that we have outside so far.

  4. Don't forget the guitar and the ipod full of punk tunes to help fuel the midnight pyres,
    "We met when we were in school
    Never took no shit from no one, we weren't fools..."
