But this one - named Sandy - sounds like a whopper! And it's going to be during the day . . . and I'll probably get to miss school since it's supposed to be here on Monday, and maybe even Tuesday. I mean, it would be irresponsible and dangerous for our principal to make us go to school during a hurricane, don't you think? If you ask me, they might as well go ahead and declare school closed right now. Why take chances that someone might miss the announcement?
I'm kind of excited. Natalie (she's my best friend in case you forgot) is going to hang out with us. It will be so much fun. We're going to paint each other's nails, and play board games and stuff.
Of course, my parents are in total freakout mode. Seriously, we have enough bottled water, dry food goods, batteries, flashlights, candles, and everything else anyone could possibly need during a storm. In fact, my parents keep the basement so stocked - we actually could open an emergency shelter down there if we had the room. But - for some reason, I will never understand, my parents went out to the store today to stand in line with the masses so they could stock up on even more supplies. Apparently, they are under the impression that we will be without power for the next five years. Oh well.
The only bummer about the whole thing is that if we lose power, I won't be able to blog - so you might not see me for a while. But don't worry, as soon as I get back on, I'll fill you all in on what happened. Anyway - I hope that everyone who might be in the path of the storm stays safe!
Until next time - - Millie
