In case you were wondering…
Yes, I’ve gone food shopping to prepare for incoming doomy doom doom Hurricane Sandy. The grocery store was only marginally more busy than usual and the vibe that this was no different than any other Saturday anywhere ever.
I have gone to the Weather Channel’s website a total of four times to see what the forecast is. I can’t bear to do any more than that, the hype makes it sound like the zombie apocalypse is about to hit us RIGHT FUCKING NOW. I’m glad I don’t have television otherwise I might be having a panic attack right now.
Sure, it could be really bad… but I don’t see a whole lot of sense of getting whipped into a frenzy about it. I’m prepared, but I’m not freaking out about it. My life is going to go on as planned this weekend… As in, I’m staying home and doing a metric fuckton of chores that need to be done and I’m working from home at the beginning of the week.
I’m hoping the electricity stays on, mostly because I happen to really like lower Manhattan quite a bit and I don’t think it would be very fun to see it under water.
I live in an area where flooding isn’t a huge risk. I live near the river, but I’ve got elevation in my favor.
As long as I stay inside, it’ll be fine.
