Most of us the East Coast just went through a pretty sizable emotional (and environmental) rollercoaster these past few days. First off, last Tuesday I experienced my very first earthquake. Although thankfully the area didn’t sustain much damage to speak of, it still left most of New York City in an absolute frenzied panic and left me feeling just a little
nauseous shook up.
And if that wasn’t enough, the entire coast went through a huge media buildup for what was for sure going to be the hurricane of the century. A real hurricane hadn’t hit New York City in about 200 years (1821 was the last time), and since we all handled the earthquake so gracefully only a few days ago, you can expect that people were pretty anxious this time around. It didn’t help matters that thousands of people had to be evacuated from their homes in NYC, Hoboken, and Jersey City, to escape lower-level areas by the water. We decided to stay put- and luckily avoided any damage to our home and car, and most importantly ourselves.
Needless to say, girl’s gotta eat some comfort food after all that.
