We’ve got some rain over here in NJ. And some crazy, scary howling wind. And power outages. I am writing this on my BlackBerry since it’s not worth turning on the computer if it’s just going to turn off mid-sentence. We’ve lost our cable anyway, so no interwebs for me. There are plenty of fallen trees and flooding, so all I can do is hope that everyone is safe. I have friends in the southern part of NJ (which has been hit particularly hard) and I hope they’re OK. It’s a bit late to call.
I was supposed to attend a friend’s poetry reading in NYC tonight, but a state of emergency has been declared and the roads to get there from here are flooded. I opted for safety.
Time to light some candles (I recommend the Henri Bendel Home candles in Fig and Black Fig) and read.
