Storm preparation! Fill everything with water including the tub, lots of canned and dry goods, candles and batteries, and that shiver of excitement when disaster is nearby but not too nearby, since we live on the highest elevation in all of Brooklyn.
I'm sure you all know about the hurricane, officially named Sandy but code name Frankenstorm, that is currently thrashing the northeast and our beloved hometown of NYC (except perhaps our European and Australian readers). We are all indoors today, since the subways are closed down. And August must feel the barometric pressure, as he refuses to get out of his sleep sack and runs over to us whimpering at the slightest gust of wind. He's born out many a storm before, but somehow he can tell this is different.
Moke the cat does not care.
