First Hurricane

Dear Hurricane Sandy,

Suck my balls.

Love, Sean. 

So I know you've all heard of this little storm the east coast is getting. So far here in Virginia things aren't too bad yet. 

Perhaps the media is hyping things up more than necessary, which wouldn't surprise me but I'm pretty concerned. 

The federal government is closed, schools are closed and public transportation shut down. There have been press conferences on the news all day and word  is this is going to be a horrible storm of great magnitude. 

We're definitely going to lose power in our household, but if that's the worst of it then I really can't complain. I just hope all my friends and family stay safe, warm and with lots of booze in their system. 

Update on 10/30/12: So we lost power last night around 10 o'clock. It's still out now and I assume it will be for a few days. We're at my in laws, who also lost power (they live two blocks from us) but they have a generator running. Other than that, all is well. 

Second update: We're back with power as of 7:30 pm! We spent the day with Matt's parent's, snuggled and warm inside. Natalie definitely enjoyed being with Mam-mam and Pap-pap all day. It was such a treat for her. 

My thoughts are with those who lost so much, many of which in NY, NJ and CT. 

Waiting for her first hurricane to arrive.

Be safe!! Hopefully, like you said, the media is hyping it up more than it really is.

Went to the store this morning just to get some bottled water and flashlight batteries and people were going CRAY CRAY stocking up. Oh... and I'm in Ohio... not even near the coast. Granted, we are supposed to get some side effects due to the lake, but still! :)

Hope it doesn't get so bad where you are and doesn't last very long!

Be safe! We're expecting it here in Ontario, Canada as well. My parents live in Philadelphia. Prayers with you all.

Stay safe you guys! I've been watching updates all afternoon and it does look like it might get pretty bad.

I love seeing pictures of her even more now that I met her.

Hope you didn't lose power. Stay safe!
