As the hurricane makes its way up the coast, it is eerily quiet in NYC. All the stores in SoHo have signs saying, "Due to inclement weather, we will be closed Saturday and Sunday."
I think we're all trying to just stay calm and trust that the city has made the right emergency plans. It definitely feels today like the calm before the storm.
It's a good time to remember the Serenity Prayer, to read a good book, and to not watch the Weather Channel. I also hope to get motivated tomorrow to de-clutter and keep busy. How I will walk Lucy is going to be a challenge.
As my friend Nelle from Capetown, South Africa said this morning, "We'll just have to take it in our stride."
