Oh, Irene

Friends. Seems like Irene was perhaps a little more bark than bite, as far as NYC is concerned anyway. And thank goodness! The city was extremely prepared and took great steps to make sure everyone was safe. I took cover at my boyfriends place in Brooklyn for the weekend. I think I actually slept through most of Irene. There are some trees down in his neighborhood but otherwise nothing too serious it seems. And we didn't lose power, thank goodness. Now that would have been a real tragedy. I haven't been back to Manhattan yet but it seems everything is a-okay at home in the West Village and I'm headed that way this afternoon. I hope everyone else is okay and safe and I'm sending love to those who received the brunt of Irene. I certainly feel lucky that the storm wasn't as bad at they predicted around these parts. And I took advantage of the chance to stay in pajamas for two days and eat lots of peanut butter. Plus thanks to ol' Irene there's no work today and it's beautiful outside. Let's have a wonderful week, cool? Cool.
