The kid's school closed early yesterday and is closed today because Hurricane Sandy, now dubbed "Frankenstorm" is making its windy way up the east coast. The hurricane shutters went up on the ocean-facing side, but luckily it's not completely dark in here. I'll be skipping tai chi class, but I think I can run two other errands while dodging the rain and winds before hunkering down for a lazy rainy movie day. It's supposed to be a lot nicer here this weekend. Unfortunately our friends up north may still be in for some stormy weather. Stay safe everyone!
