As I write this I am mentally preparing for a possible evacuation of the neighborhood where we live because it is a Zone A in New York City. We're vulnerable to flooding in downtown Manhattan so thanks to Hurricane Irene it looks like we're going to have to get out of dodge.
To top it off we're supposed to be going on vacation next week. So right now everything is up in the air and it's very frustrating. I have a laundry list of things that need to get done before we leave and right now it doesn't look like any of it will get completed. So I'm rushing to pack everything and heading to my parents' house tonight to avoid what will surely be a mass exodus out of the city tomorrow.
But, I'm trying to be positive. We're hoping to go away after all of this and I'll be checking in periodically over the next couple of weeks. In the meantime here are some fun links from around the web to get your weekend started right...and if you're on the east coast of the United States, relatively dry and most importantly, safe!
