I Hear Hurricanes a blowing

Hurricane Irene is en route to the NYC area and due to hit at 2pm EST on Sunday. The City has started the evacuation process in certain areas (mainly the Battery Park district & Rockaway islands). We’re waiting to hear if our neighbourhood is going to be mandatory evacuation as currently it is voluntary. All of sudden living on a pier in the Hudson River isn’t so charming!

We have stocked up on provisions, read hurricane safety websites and ensured all electrical devices are charged and on power saving mode.

I certainly didn’t expect hurricanes to be an experience of living in NYC! Here are some pics taken from our roof terrace as we wait for the brunt of the hurricane to arrive:
