Preparing for Irene!

All of East Coast is getting ready for the hurricane Irene heading our way. People have started evacuating. We've decided to at least stay here tonight and then reevaluate situation tomorrow morning: if we do decide to get out of the city, we'd need to do it very early in the morning, as the bridges are supposed to be closed at 5pm, creating hours and hours of traffic. We've stocked up on canned food, bread, flashlights, candles, water, so hopefully we'll be ok in the next few days. The only thing that's pissing me off about this Irene business is that our family from Russia is in town for my sister's wedding next weekend and we had major plans and wanted to go out and enjoy the city (I love playing tourist with out of town visitors), but we'll have to make the best of it and hang out here.
My fabulous aunt with Sasha at the beach yesterday (to where I drove by the way, not bragging or anything, but yeah...)
My cousin and her husband at the beach, being silly
We saw this from our balcony a couple of nights ago as we were finishing our dinner. I'll think good thoughts of clear blue skies and beautiful sunsets in hopes that Irene decides to pass us by.
Good night. Stay safe!
