Countdown ......To Eternity
We arrived in Connecticut with the bare essentials:12 gallons of water and clean clothes. No candles were allowed. The Hai " hates" candles??? He has 3 of those " little things"??? ( I have just found out the little things are flashlights, solar powered, we don't need any " stupid batteries").
The Hai threw us in a car and we rushed out to get Hurricane necessities: 3 ga-huge lobsters, bottles of wine, butter lettuce, a baguette and for me, the new Elle Decor.
A half pound of melted garlic butter later we made survival plans.
These include a feast with the neighbors where we will grill everything that currently resides in both freezers.
I have just awoken and GG, The Hai and the Lab are gone. I presume they are securing the boats and will return home with lattes and pastries. I believe cleaning out the gutters is on the list, and I'm thinking all these plants on the deck need to come indoors before they are flung indoors.
You will have to pardon my constant posting, but as the wind rises so does my anxiety level.
The 5 year old in me wants to jump in the car and drive home to the imaginary safely of Virginia. But the blogger in me insists we stay keeping the Hai company and reporting on the storm.
The only situation I can control is the one on my keyboard.
Buckle up your seatbelts. It's going to be a bumpy ride.
