Sandy's wrath kept me away from my blog this past week. I've been busy tracking this historical storm while staying on top of my class assignments. I've spend the last few days working ahead to avoid falling behind this semester.
It was pretty tough working double duty, but I got though it just fine. The toughest part was saying bye to my hubby and Princess. It's hard being away from them during times like this.
I had to report to work at 12pm on Monday just before the storm got cranking. After making dinner, I hauled ass, and jetted out the door. I was sure to pack on overnight bag before leaving. That's the great thing about being a weather anchor! I always know what's coming. I knew that Sandy would pack a wallop, which made preparation for me a breeze. Speaking of which, whipping winds and flooding led to many closures around New York. All bridges and parkways that I'd normally take home were completely shutdown. So, I had no choice but to spend the night at my station. A co-worker loaned me this air mattress.
I thank God that I'm out of harms way. But, sad that I can't be home with my two favorite people. My hubby sent me this pic just before our street loss power.
They're ok. But, Princess was upset that she couldn't get to watch her favorite show. Hopefully, power will be restored soon. I know we have a long road head. Sandy is no longer a tropical storm, but her power will be felt even when she's gone. I'm not looking forward to the aftermath. I'll be working though Tuesday too. So, my work here is far from over.
