Hurricane Irene

Hi ladies

I've been bad again and need a good old spanking when some of us meet up at BooBs in a few weeks (can you believe that?!?!?!?!)

Am super busy right now as Hurricane Irene is making her approach. Thanks to those who have sent messages of well wishes... they're really appreciated. We here in Nassau are pretty much as prepared as we can be. My house is ready - just waiting on Dad to come up and clamp down the last of the shutters (i can't figure them out for the life of me!)

I'm actually headed into work for the next couple of days (weather probably won't be good enough for us to venture home until Friday morning I'm thinking....). I have some friends who are in a rental house in a low-lying area staying here and dog and house sitting while I work. It's a win win - I have peace of mind knowing Sylvia is taken care of and they have a safe house with a generator... because we are CONFIDENT the power will be going off!

Right now the weather here in Nassau is GORGEOUS... The calm before the storm is always amazing. Bright. sunny skies, cool constant breeze. Very deeptive. If you're watching the news and hear that the bahamas is getting battered, that could be confusing.... it's a lot of islands spread out over hundreds and hundreds of miles so although Inagua, Mayaguana and Acklins are getting hammered, we're still waiting.

Looks like Irene will pass to the east of us which is a blessing - we really don't need a direct hit... but we're still in for a rough ride I imagine.

My band is messing with me something firerce. I think i'm stressed and anxious about the storm so it's tightened up and I'm wondering if it will tighten even more if the atmospheric pressure drops as the storm passes?

I've got all sorts of food options to take in to the radio station for the next couple of days so hopefully things will go down and allow me to eat and nourish myself.

If anyone else is in this storm's path (although they don't seem to have any clue yet where on the east coast it will end up) be safe and do all you can. As they say, prepare for the worst and pray for the best.

Love n Hugs

Glad to hear you will be ok...I'm honestly interested in seeing if the drop in barometric pressure will effect your band at all. I am very sensitive to pressure changes and i wonder how it would be with the band! Good luck!

Glad to hear you are doing okay. I had a wonderful dog named Sylvia too. It was because of her I started fostering for a rescue.

I saw that the worst of the storm is mostly missing Nassau - thank goodness! I'll actually be in Nassau on Sunday. I wish I had more time and I would have asked you to meet up. Ah well - next time (and I'm looking forward to meeting you safe and sound in Chicago).
