Come on Irene! Hurricane Preparations!

I live in NJ, smack dab in the middle of the state.  I grew up on the shore (about 30 minutes away) and my parents still live there.  We’ve spent the past few days battening down the hatches.  My parents and many family members are in evacuation zones (though thankfully, they are on higher ground within those areas).  Chris and I have stocked up on food and water, the Aussies have spent almost 4 hrs at the dog park in the past 16 hours, and the bathtub is full of water.  We are ready.

Oh, and I have lots of candles and books. 🙂  Good luck to everyone else weathering this hurricane!
