..let it storm, let it storm, let it storm.
We are definitely in hunker down mode here in New York City. Last night Meg came over as her building was evacuated and the three of us have been enjoying a few good movies and relaxing since then. Last night we enjoyed roasted chicken and vegetables while catching up on many DVR shows such as Parenthood, Modern Family, Revenge, and Homeland.
This morning I slept until 8, when my alarm summoned me to wake up and start working from home. All three of us were up working on our computers while the wind started whipping outside. Since the New York Stock Exchange is shut down today and tomorrow Bo was allowed to work from home. It turns out that finding a taxi would have been hard because when Meg and I walked to the grocery store around 9 the streets were eerily empty.
We started the day off on a healthy note with pumpkin spice smoothies. They were missing spinach though as the grocery store was already out of stock last night. On the side, throughout the day, I’m sipping a very beet juice that I found in the produce aisle that is filled with red vegetables and fruits such as beets, tart cherries, berries, and more!
After finishing a few hours of work Meg and I decided to head out on an adventure to check things out in the neighborhood before the wind and rain strengthened.
We walked 2 miles in total and while we were only gone for 30 minutes, the weather changed dramatically during that time. We walked down to the East River to see how high the water was peaking during low tide. We weren’t the only crazy people out and about but you can tell the police are getting ready to crack down since the worst is coming quickly.
After our adventure we returned home for lunch and an afternoon filled with warm herbal tea and the first of AFI Top 100 films we are conquering today, Lord of the Rings, on in the background. My lunch plate was delicious, consisting of a turkey sandwich, Pop Chips, and some raw vegetables paired with hummus on the side.
I hope everyone is staying safe and dry on the East Coast and that the rest of the country is having a nice Monday.
If you’re home due to the storm, what are you doing to keep your mind off the weather outside?
