Hurricane Irene pt. 1

I dealt with hurricane Irene in Newport News, VA.  This is how I spent Saturday after losing power around noon:

  • took the trash out
  • found D size batteries
  • found radio
  • found radio was compatible with C size batteries
  • found only 1 C size battery
  • found another radio
  • cranked up Hot 100.5
  • looked for food
  • settled on iced tea and Raisinettes 
  • shared Raisinettes with cat
  • contemplated rationing food for survival
  • read September issue of Real Simple
  • did 500 crunches
  • shared more candy with cat
  • got bored
  • ventured out to check out the storm from the Lion's Bridge:






  • returned home
  • did 500 crunches
  • consumed 2 Crown Royal & ginger ale cocktails (sans ice)
  • watched Due Date on battery powered MacBook
  • did 4 x 1 minute planks
  • hated every minute
  • consumed another Crown & ginger
  • brushed teeth
  • went to sleep
