Irene: Bane for Some, Blessing for Others

What are some of the inconveniences of having a hurricane in the busiest city in existence? Property loss. Death and other injuries. Progress grounding to a halt. Being grounded by the weather and forced to stay home.

It turned out that the last “inconvenient” wasn’t so bad after all, at least for me and my family. The hurricane canceled my morning meeting and all-day registration solicitation for an upcoming event (more about that later), but it also left me with my family all day for the first time since I can remember.

My brother and I beat Portal 2 during Hurricane Irene

On Saturday, I ate lunch with my family (unheard of!), hung out with my little sister, and played video games with my little brother, including Portal 2. We had a great time, and I also went to bed at a decent hour.

Not a bad way to spend a hurricane, huh?
