(sorry gotta make this quick)
i'm ALIVE! -- Hurricane Irene KILLED NJ/NY -- ended up cancelling our trip to Maryland due to evacuations -- where my boyfriend lives in Staten Island was all evacuated -- all my friends i know down the shore were evacuated -- tree's are torn up -- streams are now rapid lakes -- here in north Jersey people now have water-front property (but this is not a good thing) -- took me 2 hours to get my Mom to the hospital instead of the normal 20 -- no traffic lights working -- tons of people still without any power -- i'm blessed that everyone i know is OK -- houses can be rebuilt, repainted, ect .. but lives can't be returned -- so i'm just grateful all the ones i love are still with me and my house is well totally hurricane proof (no water AT all .. all the rest of my neighbors had like a foot of water in their basements) ..
even tho you made me miss my trip to Maryland, Irene - i sorta' thank you for getting me outta' watching baseball - so sorta' thanks ..
OK - off on the road i go - this will be interesting!!! - but if it wasn't interesting and testy then well it wouldn't be my life, right?
HOW DID YOU MAKE OUT WITH IRENE EAST COAST BUTTERFLIES?!?!
