Last week, Nick and I went to California to spend some time with his family and see his high school friend get married! It was such a fun week, spending time with Nick’s family and friends and going to all of Nick’s favorite places.
When we got back, we had 2 days to prepare for 2 hurricanes. After dealing with Sandy on Long Island 2 years ago, I wanted to prepare us for the worst. We ran around getting food, water, batteries, candles, and then we spent all night prepping our apartment as best we could. I thought that the stores would be completely barren but when we went out the night before the hurricane was supposed to hit for a few last minute things, the stores seemed to be pretty well-stocked, except for batteries.
The first hurricane, Iselle, had been downgraded to a tropical storm after going through the Big Island and leaving thousands of people without power. Yesterday, the day Iselle was set to arrive, Nick had to go into work and I wasn’t sure when he would be able to get home. Thankfully he made it in safely and then I just kind of sat around waiting for the hurricane to hit.
