It has started to rain here and the evacuations keep on comin’.
Luckily, we live in an area that is fairly high above sea level, so we are relatively safe, unlike several areas in Brooklyn, Hoboken, outer Manhattan, and the like.
Ironically, those places are considered more hip and desirable than where we live (well, they just are, actually), but WHO’S LAUGHING NOW?!
So I have been spending most of the morning getting geared up.
And by geared up I mean that I have made blueberry muffins, bread, and I have BBQ chicken simmering on the stove for dinner.
I’m telling you- all this storm talk is enough to make a housewife like me run around baking all day, throwing everything into a crazy carb-loaded stockpile.
I should throw on an apron and say, “Well, family, Ma is preparin’ for a HURRICANE!”
What was that Brian? I have been saying that all day? And I am wearing an apron?
Well, a natural disaster is no reason to lose ones sparkle.
It is also not a time for diets.
Which is why I have these babies about ready to go into the oven.
Why cinnamon rolls at a time like this, Caitlin? You may ask.
Well, are they cinnamon rolls, or are they little swirly hurricanes?…
Huh? huh? Do you see them? Huh?
I may not be taking this seriously enough.
It’s my first hurricane you know! (Squeal of fear and excitement!).
See you on the other side…
