The uncertain visit of Irene

It’s been a crazy week in Florida with all kinds of disruptions. First, on Monday they announced a hurricane coming to Florida so I have been preparing for the worst with a positive attitude, hoping that nothing dangerous comes. With that in mind, I prepared my house for the hurricane and secured the office regarding floodings or strong winds. Of course I got ready with supplies — buying the right food, water, batteries, flash lights, candles etc.. I am still deciding whether or not to completely close the house with shutters, just because we have big glass windows everywhere. Not only did I have to worry about that, but to complicate things even more, the earthquake that was felt in NY caught my attention since my son who works on Wall Street was evacuated from his office thinking that it was a terrorist attack. Add to all this the revolving news of Tiboli, my mind hasn’t been thinking at all around taking pictures of food nor have I even written my Tuesday post. I just hope Irene doesn’t cause any destruction and nothing living will be affected. 
 
I had my lunch from Chipotle yesterday while I was running from one place to another. It is one of the decent food chains and a bit healthier option of fast food. Today the information regarding Irene threats is pointing only towards the Northeast Coast. Still, I think we all have to be prepared and I pray that nothing happens anywhere.

  1. Hi Lola! When I read this over heard this on the news, I could only think of one thing. It’s scary to have to be prepared for such natural disaster. But it seems the world itself is on self destruction mode. I’m glad to know that you and your family are doing okay. Plus after reading that Washington had an earth quake, my mind just went blank too. Do take care my friend. Hugs, Jo
