Here in New York City it has started to drizzle and the air pressure is so low that my ears and sinuses are aching ferociously. PhDork and I live on relatively high ground, so we are not among the 370,000 people under mandatory evacuation order. But there has never been a mandatory evacuation before, nor have the commuter rail and subway systems ever been shut down completely like this (they stop rolling at noon today and no one quite knows when they’ll start up again). The authorities are prepared for some serious shizz. I have lots of water, food, and various supplies set aside, plus a hand-cranked radio. If the power stays on, PhDork and I may have a movie party tomorrow. If not, I will kick it old-school with candles and books.
Stay safe and keep in touch!
