Sandy is on her way! we happened to be visiting NYC (before we moved here in April of this year) in August 2011 during Hurricane Irene, so this isn’t our first state of emergency situation. last time we were staying at The Palace Hotel which was a really fun experience under the circumstances. recaps from that trip:

we both had a couple of errands to run yesterday, knowing we’d be stuck indoors for a day or 2 (maybe until Wednesday depending on rain/wind!). I stopped by the grocery store to pick up a few things.
Billy also stopped by the store so we definitely have enough bananas.
trail mix, nuts and a few bars.
we also have plenty of canned foods and additional produce. chocolate and wine, too.
last night was eerie – the clichéd “calm before the storm” with clouds and wind.
Billy and I were watching the news last night and he made me download the free Red Cross hurricane app. we feel so safe now.
the good smelling candles help, too.
we live on the 16th floor of our building, so the wind is loud and strong. it’s not currently raining, but I know there’s plenty of that in the forecast. my office is closed today, so I’m working from home which means a pajama party for Billy and me. I’ll probably head to the gym in our building if I get restless.
to anyone in the path of the storm, please be safe!
what’s the one food or drink you would be sure to have at home in a storm?
