Come On Irene!

Saturday, August 27, 2011

Hurricane Irene is making its way up the coastline and should hit by tomorrow morning, lasting all day.

Our small city has already declared a state of emergency.

I’m concerned, but not fanatically so!

Our prep:

–closing all of our windows on the front porch

–bringing in out frog yard decorations

–buying some extra bread, peanut butter, jelly, crackers and chips

–doing all of our laundry

–lowering the temp in our fridge/freezer

That’s it!

In the stores people have been a little crazy–no bottled water left and the peanut butter and chip sections were pretty bare!

It’s all supposed to start tomorrow at around 5 am with potential flooding and high winds.

My only concern is getting Izzy outside to pee and then back inside so she can hide under the bed 🙂

It’ll be interesting to see what actually happens…they are predicting power outages.  Thankfully I don’t have to worry about getting to work!

Plans for the rest of the night…a  movie and then bed!
