For a moment, when I awoke this morning, I thought that the hurricane had passed us by... that it was over. The news, though, says otherwise. So we have spent the day in a state of anticipation. Waiting for this hurricane that is supposed to hit land tonight yet has already disabled our city.
The kids are out of school for what feels like indefinitely. Unless, for some reason, the power outages and flooding don't happen, they will return Thursday at the earliest.
So we sit here in our house. Waiting for the lights to go out. Praying that our trees stay standing and our basement stays dry. And that all those in more treacherous locations stay safe.

We fill pitchers of water and stock the fridge with homemade pizza and apple crisp.
