The clouds have begun to gather and, in a perfect storm of bad luck, both the beach house and our new stones throw from the Long Island Sound G'wich digs are in Irene's direct path...
The bad news is, you can't get renter's insurance when you live on the ocean sooo, I get to spend tomorrow like Thomas Crown shuttling/sneaking artwork from here to my parent's insured home in the already evacuated Ocean City...
The good news is, we got renter's insurance out the wazoo for the new place so, Babe's king air mattress is covered. What a relief...
Kindness of General Babe who is, as I write this, en route from CT to the beach, for pleaseee making it here before the stroke of midnight when the State of Emergency prohibits anyone from getting on the Island. Don't you leave me and the Ti-Babes here to spell out H E L P on the rooftop in orange Hermès boxes alone...XXOO

Good luck and keep us all updated! Seems crazy that the East Coast could experience both an earthquake and a hurricane in the same week...ReplyDelete
Stay safe Alice! Thinking of you, out here, and hoping you and the kids are fine.ReplyDelete
You and the T-Babes stay safe!ReplyDelete
State of emergency orange Hermes boxes....I am rolling with laughter. I bet Irene would stop at that stylish rental.ReplyDelete
All joking aside, be safe. My husband loves a good storm and has been known to drive right into them.
He should have been a stunt man.
I do hope you're all right : I love your blog and these two pictures are beautiful. I like it when the sky turns black and a storm is coming, but in the U.S., it sometimes gets ugly !! Please stay safe !ReplyDelete
Best wishes from France !
If I see those orange boxes semaphoring help, don't you worry, the fash pack will get you out of there!ReplyDelete
I hope things go as smoothly and safely as possible for you all out that way today.
Are you evacuating? We are battening down here in Chester County...be safeReplyDelete
Hoping you were able to make it through that dreaded gas line and relocate all the family treasures in time to make an escape to safety! Living on the coast is so relaxing....most of the time! Stay safe, my friend. I'll be here in NC with eyes glued to the tele praying we still have a beach to go after Irene has her way with us.ReplyDelete
God bless. Hope you are safe. We're getting Irene's heavy outer bands on Amelia as we speak, will probably lose power any minute. Best,ReplyDelete
Surely you can get on the island to get people off the island, right?ReplyDelete
You've been through a hurricane before so you know what to expect, right again?
Stay safe Ali!!! Keep us posted!ReplyDelete
I love that image of your orange rooftop SOS, but I sincerely hope it doesn't come to that. Be safe (and get those scarves in a ziplock bag if you haven't done so already)!ReplyDelete
Be safe Allie!ReplyDelete
H E L P in Hermes...you kill me! Be safe Ali. We are stocking up for Dark and Stormies in Baltimore and maybe Hurricane's just for fun. You have to just hunker down and drink through a storm right? Drive safe Babe and snuggle with the kitties. Are they declawed? xoxoReplyDelete
Sending up prayers for you, Babe, your precious ones, and family. Stay safe.ReplyDelete
Hope you and your loved ones are now safe and still dry!ReplyDelete
dyyyyyyyyyying over the HELP image c/o the hermes boxes!ReplyDelete
God bless, and stay safe.ReplyDelete
I pray that Irene will dissipate and become a gentle breezeReplyDelete
Echoing all previous sentiments. Be safe. Will be thinking of you, and if you can, keep us posted.ReplyDelete
We have a full tank of gas, a case of wine and a list of stores to loot on sunday!ReplyDelete
You need to take a look at Martha Stewart's blog to see her assistant's apartment in NYC. His name is Kevin Sharkey. There are pictures from a housewarming party. He has a shower stacked high with those orange boxes; it looks great. Betty LouReplyDelete
You and the fur babies stay safe!ReplyDelete
SHBF(send Hermes box fast). I too mustReplyDelete
evacuate-- from the Long Island peninsula.
Wishing you all a safe journey.
Safe journeys for you and your furry little ones! We are in prep mode here in Boston as well, which includes food, water and WINE. Prayers for your safety...ReplyDelete
Allie and her boys,ReplyDelete
Thinking of you-where are going to ride out the storm?
Thanks everyone. We truly appreciate the concern and well wishes. As of right now, the whip is safe and sound and we are hunkered down in the beach house. But, not to worry as we plan to reassess in the morn and have a backup plan #1 and a backup plan #2. Both involving Pilgie and Lolly wearing mule pack saddles stuffed with the family jewels...XXOOReplyDelete
When it's hurricane season, summer is an action verb, yes? Stay safe!ReplyDelete
Hope you and your little family are safe right now.ReplyDelete
If y'all are still trying to determine what to do, look at the pictures on MSNBC website of the houses in Nagshead. Also, there was 1, maybe 2 tornadoes this morning across the sound.ReplyDelete
Just thinking of you ma chéri! Wishing you well!ReplyDelete
Just heard sewage system being closed down in Ocean City as of 6 p.m. Will that affect you? Hope you have a bucket and bathwater!ReplyDelete
