Well, this has been an interesting couple of days. We are fortunate to have power at the house*, but the entire city is pretty much on hold. No subways, no buses and we’re not supposed to be driving. Sooo…this pretty much leaves you with doing whatever work you can, online shopping and eating.
I was prepared:
Yet another place that got Gooped recently, BKLYN Larder, was my go-to for the fun stuff. That said, it was not fun being there on Sunday, as everyone else seemed to be there, too. (And to the lady who kept hitting me with her straw bag: let’s hope we are never on line together again.) I did get out eventually, though, and got home just in time to set out candles and matches in every room, strategically place flashlights, fill up tubs and other sources of water, change all the flowers in the house** and then fidget until the storm hit.
Not fun, but again, we were lucky. And I have to say, I think the city was rather well-prepared. So, kudos to Mr. Bloomberg and here is hoping that our lovely city — any everywhere else that was on Sandy’s path — gets back to normal quickly.
* None at the beach or office, but how important is work and everything I have been cooking and freezing all summer?
** Yes, I arranged flowers as storm prep. Why? Because I knew we were going to be house-bound for a while and sad, almost dead flowers would not make things any better.
