Well, we are under a mandatory evacuation order.  Yes folks, Hurricane Irene has set her sloe-eyed sights on Long Island and the rest of the tri-state area, after she gets finished with the southern part of the east coast.  We live far enough south on Long Island that we are under the mandatory order issued by our county executive.  They are making a very big deal of this storm, enough to make me very nervous.

Right now, Irene is listed as a Category 2 storm and hopefully she will weaken as she comes up the coast.  But even a Cat 1 storm making a direct hit on NYC and the surrounding environs is a bad thing.  A very bad thing.  The Long Island Rail Road, Metro North Rail and the NYC subway system will all shut down tomorrow at noon. The subway system has never shut down like this. 

My son and his girlfriend will head north with her mother, to a friend's house up in Orange County.  David and I will be leaving soon to start driving to Vermont.  We had our vacation all planned out anyway, but we're leaving early to get ahead of the evacuating masses.  We will stay on the road for a few hours an then (hopefully) find a motel to get a few hours of sleep.  Then we'll finish the ride up to Burlington, VT and get Sarah moved into her dorm tomorrow.  (Come on, aren't you jealous?)  After she's settled, we will head up to Smugglers' Notch where my timeshare will welcome us.  By then we will collapse and sleep.  And worry because the worse will be hitting here sometme on Sunday.

What, me worry?

O yeah.
