i really hope doc's family is okay. his parents are in Philly and his sister is in NJ. and there's the shore house, uninhabited in the winter, which is good because it is probably gone. it is on the end of the island with just a block between the ocean and bay. and it's not one of those modern monstrosities. it's a proper beach house, bare bones. just comfortable enough to spend a couple weeks. then go home for a few and then come back. all we can do is wait to hear from them.

the news is making me crazy because they aren't talking about Philly at all. it's all NYC, NJ, and West VA. those can't be the only areas affected by the storm. when they do mention Philly, it's never good.

i'm impressed by the lack of lawlessness in NYC. unless everyone is still in shock and things will get bad. but i don't know. maybe lessons were learned in Katrina. maybe there will be no looting or stupid behavior that puts others in danger. the cynic in me says at some point, the bad elements of the city are just going to go apeshit. it should coincide with the death of cell phone batteries. with no power and endless destruction, what's a little more? the non cynical side of me says, no, new yorkers are better than that. everyone will pull together and help each other, remember 9/11?

heh, the news can't even get onto the island the shore house is on. the gov is going to copter over and survey the damage, so we'll see that footage later today.

now is where i talk about how it's going to be 78 and cloudless today. but it's fall, that's the way it is here. good for tourists.

time for being a smart ass is over

no more making fun of the hurricane. no one has heard from doc's sister. his parents are fine, all hatches battened down and they are set. dad's broken hip healing nicely. i've seen some pictures from the shore in NJ and it doesn't look good. doc was in the foulest of moods thinking about the shore house being gone. maybe it survived. they sat out the 85 hurricane at the shore house and just went upstairs when the water came in. so it's a tough little house.

meanwhile, i am SO glad he went to work. he would have just been in a foul mood here. and i don't need it. well, no one needs it. i don't want it. he wouldn't even talk to me. we tried to be nice to each other, but once he talked to his mom, it was all over. he told me briefly what she said and then just shut up. i gave him a time check when he was getting ready and told him to have a good day. that was about the extent of our communication this morning.

i want to lay down on the couch but freddie is asleep on 1/3 of it and i don't want to disturb her. i slept for a couple hours this morning and sai sai slept at my feet. so cute. i have the blinds closed, i was in no mood for bright sunlight today. so the cats are a bit confused.
