Hunkering down

I had plenty to read during the storm last night, and I didn't read any of it. I sat numbly, watching hours of storm coverage, until my roommates insisted we put on a movie, which I half-watched while scrolling through storm photos. Because we still were lucky enough to have power and lights.

Just like last year's hurricane, it always seems like sheltering from the storm could be fun and cozy, like a snow day for adults, until the weather is bearing down and there's no way out. When there's nothing to be done. 

Thinking of everyone who lost power, their homes, their neighborhoods or their lives due to Hurricane Sandy. We are waiting for things to get back to normal, whatever that is.
