Well, everyone, I had hoped to add a couple new posts today and this weekend but I just don't have time. Hurricane Irene will be here in 24 hours or so and I still have a lot left to do to get prepared. The last major hurricane we experienced was Isabel in 2003. For that one, I evacuated myself to Jersey. Unfortunately, that's not an option this time since Irene is an attention whore and will be hitting there too! Isabel was a true disaster. The town where I taught still had families living in FEMA trailers 5 years later. The Virginia coast is often ignored for the more exciting areas of the Outer Banks NC, DC, NYC etc. but we are almost always affected by the big storms every season to include those winter Nor'easters. I hope any of you anywhere close to Irene's path are taking the warnings and suggestions seriously, especially my Northeast clan. You guys are used to blizzards but I think hurricanes are way worse (I speak from experience). So everyone BE SAFE and I will blog when all of this blows over.

May the force be with all of us!
