Storm Warnings

Internet is back on at home but now Hurricane Irene approaches. And a tornado watch. Because an earthquake on Tuesday wasn't enough. Sigh. I'll be decamping (with Julie) to a friend's house, probably tomorrow, because the power will go out for who knows how long. I'm on Twitter until the power goes. Stay safe!

PS: Here's a link from the New Yorker's Book Bench blog (tweeted out yesterday) with Six Shorts to Read During a Hurricane. I enjoyed it.

Sunday update - I can scarcely believe my good luck: the power remained on. Back early next week. Have to get Giulia Geranium re-started after a too-long hiatus. xo

Yes heard about it on the news... good fortune that it seemed to reduce in its intensity!

We are preparing for the fire season, with a burn off behind the homes and checking fire pumps etc. All quite normal for where we live though! :o)

I heard about it on the news too.
You're all right now? I really hope everything is OK with you.

I was just over at GG. Funny bunnies...liked Pete's, too. I woke this morning thinking about my stack of children's books! We are on the same wavelength today.

I was gone away over the weekend to a place without any electricity, but I did worry and think about you. Glad to read that you are well.
