hurricane irene.

the wedding i was supposed to help with today was canceled, with very good reason (phew). so here we are, waiting for Hurricane Irene. i'm sticking it out in the city in my little apt which should be, and hopefully will be, pretty safe (i'm with my bf so i at least have a buddy). we have food, water, candles, matches, movies (Stand By Me, The Goonies, Dirty Dancing, Shag, Can't Buy Me Love ... ), a stack of September issue magazines, flashlights, batteries and wine, of course :)

 i went for a run this morning in Central Park (i had to do something active before being cooped up for the rest of the weekend) ... it was life as normal ...

then the clouds started rolling in ...
and then it poured (i made it to an awning) ...

last night we went to the store to stock up on food and water, just like everyone else ...

bread aisle ... completely empty (there was a couple packages of hotdog buns left and a package of english muffins, which i snagged) ...
peanut butter, gone ...
water, almost gone ...
we managed to collect a pretty good stock of goods (apparently a hurricane is an excuse to eat junk) ...
water and wine ...

 i really hope everyone stays safe and hopefully Irene isn't as strong as they're anticipating. hang in there, east coast.
