There is a lot of Frankenstorm talk right now as New Yorkers prepare for Hurricane Sandy. To quote one of my friends who is currently living in NYC “Mimosas first THEN prep for hurricane.” Facebook and twitter suggest people stocking up on goods, but with very little urgency (my friends are at least). However, I’m sure the general feeling there right now is concern. But from what I can tell, my friends that live there spent their day yesterday waiting in super long lines at the Mr. Kiwi or what ever local bodega/ grocery they could get to and buying stuff to make peanut butter and jelly sandwiches.
I hope everything is okay in the places that have already been affected, and I hope New York receives very little damage (the Lovelyish offices are there!) Please be safe!! On the bright side, Sandy is a category 1 hurricane (Katrina was category 5) so it could be much worse. Here are some things you probably didn’t know about New York and hurricanes.
