Prepping for Sandy...



Whew... I am so glad that the garment district tour is scheduled for the 2nd pleasant-weather day to follow this big ol' storm!  As preparations for Sandy are being made, I have recharged and loaded my Kindle, charged my cell phone, made brownies (vital), a batch of codfish cakes, and made generally sure we all have enough stuff around to keep us safe, cozy, and occupied.

I would love to design, create, and sew like a maniac, but we'll see what this particular situation requires or allows...

We live on a reasonably high floor of an apartment building, so barring any unusual circumstances, it seems we'll just be dealing with lots of rain and wind, and possible power outages, keeping us from venturing outside.  This should be interesting...

How are all of you prepping for Sandy?

  1. Thanks for reminding me to fully charge the kindle. There's a new book that I want to upload. You are on a roll with posting. Yippie

    1. I've been a posting maniac, lately. I was writing during the slow period just before these posts, but couldn't finish, since I had to get three wedding dresses done first! Now, I'm taking a little breather for a bit, before I start any new clients!

  2. Well, here in Upstate NY, we are all waiting nervously since we took such a hit with Irene and Lee last year. Generators and water are basically unavailable at this point, totally sold out. I'm doing a bit of cooking, getting the laundry etc. out of the way, taking a tour of outside to pick up and put away anything that could become a missile or just get blown away. For the moment, I have bread rising and a chicken roasting in the oven. We got a generator last year after people lost power for weeks here; we'll fire it up today to make sure everything is working right (but it's really just to run the freezer - I somehow doubt that I'd be able to sneak a bit of power to run my sewing machine).

  4. Stay safe, my northern friends. I've lived in Florida for a long time now but it's always scary when these storms are coming your way.

    1. Fantastic, Joan! I am incredibly grateful that after this "worse case scenario" storm, we have all of our family, utilities, and neighborhood in order, and safe and sound. I kinda don't want to watch the news today, but I feel I Should.

  6. I'm also in the area of where Irene did major damage, much that is still in the process of being rehabbed. I feel sorry for those who got the brunt of Irene and now have to face this. I'm going out this morning for gas, cold cuts, sewing needs, and a prescription. Then it will be hunker down time. Stay safe in the Big Apple!

  7. I'm prepping by living in Texas where our biggest dangers in the central portion of the state are tornadoes. I hope all of you in Sandy's path come out the other side with minimal damage (and lots of completed sewing!).

  8. Mimi, please update us when you can & let us know how you're doing. I've been watching NYC news all night & can hardly believe what I'm seeing.

  9. Pretty crazy. We are among the 70% of New Yorkers who still have power, but the news is just incredible. I am at a loss for words.

    1. Glad you're OK!!

      What a disaster for so many parts of the city. The damage pictures are surreal. There's a long & difficult recovery ahead, and I feel extremely sorry for those who are suffering right now.
