Good Night, Irene

Last post before the deluge. Apres le deluge, electricity, we hope. Emergency supplies (flashlights, candles, matches, extra batteries, isopropyl alcohol and microfiber cloth for cooling humidity-soaked skin) sitting right behind me, blinds and curtains drawn over windows, bathtub filled with washing-and-flushing water, baggies of now-frozen water in our fridge's freezer bulking out the space... we're about as ready as we can be. My thoughts go out to all in the path of this hurricane. See you tomorrow or whenever electricity is restored.
