2012/10/30: So yeah ...

The hurricane is literally not on any radars anymore and it is bright and sunny outside (despite the dire, wet forecast for the day). Kinda windy, but if I'd slept remotely well last night I'd probably be on my bike right now instead of alternating between writing this blog post, reading Redshirts by John Scalzi,1 and just getting generally distracted by the rest of the internet and Zelda. Bottom line is, the sun's out and I haven't touched the twelve-pack of bottled water my dad got me in case things went apocalypse-shaped.

That said, I know a lot of people weren't so lucky. There's millions of people without power, and the whole coastal area in New York and New Jersey etc. are still having to deal with the flooding. I'm perpetually impoverished, but if you can, don't hesitate to donate to the Red Cross. My thoughts are with everyone who's been affected by the storm in some way, and I hope things can return to something approximating normalcy soon.

1Great book btw. All you really need to know to appreciate it is the definition of "redshirt" and "away mission," but it's a great send-up of Star Trek in general.

For the record, it turned rainy in the evening.

Good luck! You're gonna need it to get past the troubles. Also, word from the news that disaster-induced robberies and thefts are a thing. Keep your guard up

... well, I don't live anywhere near the places where that's a thing, so, uh, no worries, I guess ...

On a completely random note, I have started using "bedmuffin times". Despite the fact that my name is in no way shape or form even vaguely similar to "muffin." So... congratulations! -_-
