Hurricane watch

A hurricane is making its way up the eastern seaboard.  Abigail and I went grocery shopping today and we have more food in the loft than we've had in the two years I've lived here.  I just made a delicious pasta with fresh mozzarella, tomatoes and basil.  We have plenty of water, and ice cream.  Hopefully we won't lose power.

It seems that the hurricane is being downgraded and probably won't be that bad - but I think it's great that the city has been preparing for it.  I thought of my mother because she would have had to have been evacuated.  I missed her - those feelings come up without warning, I just feel sad and miss having her to talk to.

All public transportation will be shut down by noon tomorrow.  Soho will be deserted!!   I'm hoping it is not a serious hurricane and it passes through with no damage and no loss of life.

So was that an invitation for dinner? I'm there!

Absolutely! Come on over! (Bring Alfie, since he's the cook in the family.)

Too late! He's cooking his special fresh tomato-and-pasta with fresh corn and asparagus. We went to the farmer's market this morning, which closed at 11 a.m.

Sounds great! Our cooks are whipping up some chicken tikka masala, dal and rice. Thanks to Nate and Abigail - they love to cook!
