Meanwhile, we’re chilling at home.  They closed down the schools so Molly and I have been here.  I have some warm soup in the crock pot and we have a few cases of water and stuff to make pb&j sammiches if we lose power.  My phone is charged and I’m trying not to be too nervous.  We moved some supplies downstairs into my landlord’s basement apartment.  She lives in Greece so she isn’t down there right now.  We have the key and decided it wouldn’t be a terrible idea to have a plan of action.

Stay safe, everyone!
