So, not only do I need to fill gas tanks, charge portable DVD players (hey, you try getting stuck with three kids in the dark for days with no media), and, I don’t know, buy more wine, but I also need to finish editing a last-minute short story and send it out before the deadline on the 31st, lest I lose my internet on Monday.
Holy disaster preparedness, Batman! Oh, the pressure of the perfect storm. Funny, my fine state had its collective ass kicked by a doozy last Halloween. We lost power for nine (count ’em, nine) days. I was ready to string myself up and jump, but it was too dark to find the rope. Good God, if we have a repeat, I may not be able to survive it.
Okay, enough BS. I need to go wait in line for gas now. Good luck and God speed, peeps of the North East!
