First an earthquake and now a hurricane!
We are officially waiting for Hurricane Irene to hit us overnight from 2:00am to 3:00pm.
We were previously told it was going to hit us tomorrow at 8:00pm, but she's a coming
faster than we anticipated. Yesterday we went shopping for water, canned food, batteries and flashlights, and it was a mob scene like never before. The shelves were empty, there was no bread, no D batteries which are the ones that flashlights mostly use, and no flashlights. We ended up at Costco after going to Target and two other stores and coming up empty handed. Our windows have been taped up just in case and we have our supplies ready.
We are all staying together, my mom, dad, sister, brother, Humbe, Miguelito and me, we will be sleeping in the hallway away from windows, well Miguelito will actually be sleeping as I watch over him. I must say that I am starting to freak out, the pressure and the news are actually getting to me and after a mini panic attack the only thing holding me together is Miguelito.
We might lose power and this crappy laptop of mines will also stay without power, so I hope to come back on Monday or Tuesday to let you know that we are ok and how New York survived it's first hurricane.
Wishing you all a great weekend, and praying that everything is ok!
Update: We are getting hit by Irene at 8:00am and not at 2:00am like we were previously told. It is raining cats & dogs and the wind is picking up. We will still be sleeping in the hallway away from the windows! Thank you loves for all of your sweet comments and prayers. xoxo Love ya!!!
