the calm before the storm

I survived my first hurricane this past weekend. I stocked up on water, snacks, candles and even filled my tub with water. Here are some pics from my neighborhood before Hurricane Irene came into town. Luckily my apt building had no damages and we didn't lose power. Thank you for all of those who were concerned.

The Flatiron Building boarded up.

The chips shelf at Walgreens. Good thing I bought my snacks the night before.
