Another crazy weather day in Virginia!

Well, just in case you haven't been watching the endless media craziness for the past week, there was a HUGE hurricane barreling up and down the East Coast yesterday. Just in case the earthquake from earlier this week hadn't made people hysterical enough, Mother Nature had to throw in a hurricane the size of Texas--crazy!

In Northern VA, we got rain all day yesterday, and some strong winds late in the evening and into Sunday morning. It kept me awake pretty late last night, but did not do any damage around our neighborhood--yay!
The sky got an eerie green hue a few times during the day, but thankfully no tornadoes for us!

Not much of an action shot, since I took it through my window, but I certainly was NOT going outside yesterday, haha!

And just in case you were wondering how WE prepare for hurricanes, here is some evidence:

Lots of hurricane supplies here, haha!

Everyone else in the entire DMV area is out raiding the bread, milk and toilet paper aisles...where do my mom and I go? The mall of course! She wanted to look at floor lamps and carpets (random, yes, haha, but there is a lot of home-remodeling being done at my house!), and I wanted to return a few things to Macy's...and just happened to pick up a few necessities as well.. ;) :)

Macy's had some cute clothes, and luckily--NO earthquake this time! :)

But at the same time though, my dad was joining the masses of people at BJ's, so he took care of the food and emergency supplies.  And we had our Scrabble game all ready to go, so we were able to weather the storm nicely! :)

Bright and sunny today!

We didn't get hit too hard here. A lot of people were without power this morning in Fredericton but luckily our house and my school still had power. We got a fair amount of rain and the wind was strong but not too bad by the time it got this far north. I'm glad you weathered the storm well.

Ohh I'm glad to hear that it wasn't too bad for you! I'm so glad that my house and school didn't lose power. I know lots of people did! :(
