Come on Irene!!!

Hello Dear Readers:

 We are bracing down for this crazy Hurricane Irene to make her fury known. Although the weather people, every local (and national ) news channel is trying to make me crazy, I am remaining calm. We put the cars in the garage, closed the pool, put all of the outdoor furniture inside and are hoping for the best. We have plenty of water, food, a generator, candles, flashlights and if we lose internet and cable, we have: those good old-fashioned things that sit on my shelves by the hundreds, oh yeah....books!!  I am hoping that all of the old, dead scary looking trees on our property sit still and do not fall on said pool, house or otherwise. We are heading to my mom's to have a sleepover with our family and all of the babies will be together, so that will be fun! If we lose cable there, we are bringing board games to keep us all busy.  My mom also has plenty of food, and we will be fine! I wish all of my fellow NYers and East Coasters the best and hope you all have somewhere safe to hunker down. This Irene is going to be a B-I-T-C-H!

Stay Safe.

Hello Ana,
I am from Jamaica and have experienced hurricanes and storms. I hope Irene stays away. Anyway from your post I see that you are all prepared. Stay safe and my thoughts and prayers are with you all. I have a lot of friends and relatives in the areas that could be affected. I learnt about your Blog in the Weekend Blog Hop and I am happy to become a Follower. Take care.

I hope y'all are safe. I used to live in NJ and I remember hurricane season. Usually by the time it got up to us, though, it had calmed down considerably. Now I'm in Texas and when a (former) hurricane reaches us, it usually just drizzles all day.

Thanks for stopping by Coupon Savings In The South. I was already following you. I am in SC and we just got a little wind from Irene, sounds like you was prepared as much as you could be.
