A weekend trip to Atlantic City was most definitely put on hold this weekend to instead bunker down and weather out Hurricane Irene, which (in case you haven't heard) barreled up the east coast this weekend. Our apartment overlooks the Statue of Liberty, which is normally a feature I adore, but this weekend our proximity to the water seemed like much more of a hazard than anything. Friday was spent canceling plans and buying groceries and supplies, Saturday was spent glued to CNN and the NY Times interspersed with board games and wine, and Sunday was spent checking out the flooding and feeling very relieved that the morning unveiled a much better scene than was expected.
