The Lull Before the Storm
In my formative years, I grew up at the NJ seashore - Wildwood to be exact - and never have I seen the furor that has arisen over Hurricane Irene. We had Hazel in '59 and another in March of '63 that had us getting around town in rowboats. Never did I remember a state of emergency and mandatory evacuations. In our area, the local Shop Rite stores closed at 8 on Friday night and will be closed all weekend. I have seen many other cancellations because of what might be. Today I read that the NY City subways will be closed at noon. Wonder where she will head, what her strength will be and how everyone will fare. We can only wait and be prepared!! Peace to all.
