Unless you live in a hole and/or are dead, you know by now that New York City is about to get hit with a hurricane, the likes of which has never been seen.
Normally, when the media reports on storms, they inflate the threat. Dangerous weather systems make for great TV. But this storm looks like the real deal. Already, on the Jersey Shore, water levels are as high as they were during Hurricane Irene, and we’re still 36 hours away from the center of the event.
I woke up to a mid-morning that looked like early dawn, or the bottom of the world. The sky was gray, and the light was dark.
Now, the wind is picking up, and the areas surrounding us are being evacuated. If this storm isn’t a big fucking deal, I am going to be very disappointed.
