Sandy, the Frankenstorm

Word. Frankenstorm aka Hurricane Sandy is approaching. I honestly always take caution with what the new casters say because sometimes, they make it out to be a bigger deal then necessary. They did it with Hurricane Irene in August 2011. 

Yet, don't fret...we are prepared. Everything is tied down and put away. Today I went to the store for my mom & it wasn't as bad of a mad house as I thought it was going to be! Plus, I filled up my gas tank last night so I am good on that front. I was hoping I would not have to go to school tomorrow. Then, the best news happened. Automated message from the superintendent that we are closed MONDAY AND TUESDAY! Thank goodness!! This is totally going to throw the kids off their game but it is so much more important to be safe then sorry.

I also thought I was going to have to go into CPK tonight and just as I was starting to get ready, my boss Melissa called. She told me she didn't need me for takeout tonight but if I wanted hours, would I want to host (she had not called Melanie who was scheduled to work yet). I thought about it but I told her I'd rather stay home (since last time with Irene, I got stuck there!). She was totally okay with that and told me to enjoy my night (or nights since I dont know if I'll have to go in tomorrow!) off. :) 

I am actually going to use this time off to be productive and clean my closet/switch my clothes. No time like an impending Hurricane to do it!! I wonder if we will lose power this time. Last time, we didn't and I was very thankful. However, this storm looks much worse according to the news reports so we will just have to see!

Everyone in the path of this Hurricane, please be safe!! 


  1. I'm coming to realize that a majority of the blogs I read are in the NE US...All my bloggy friends are going to be in the path of Sandy! Stay safe!!

  2. We were cancelled in Boston, too! I started reorganizing my pantry today instead of lesson planning, so it works for me! :) Enjoy your time off!
