Hurricane Virgin #SANDY

As someone who grew up in Southern California, I grew up being freaked out by earthquakes and wildfires. I live in NorCal now, in a seismically stable area that’s nevertheless just as much at risk of wildland fires.

When I first planned my visit to the East Coast for a writers conference in New York and a week-long visit with family in DC, I never expected my timing would be perfect to experience my first hurricane. Hurricane Sandy certainly isn’t the kind of weather I would have scheduled if I’d been given the choice. I probably would have asked for some nice sunny fall days without the state of emergency thrown in.

At the moment, it looks like an ordinary storm–a decent amount of rain, a gusty wind. Plenty of leaves on the ground from the downpour. Assuming I have electricity and a charged up computer, I’ll check-in as things progress.

How are things where you are? Lots of rain already? None? I hope everyone is keeping safe.
