My wife and I decided early on Friday to voluntarily evacuate Hoboken in advance of Irene’s NYC arrival. Even though this event (still ongoing) isn’t wasn’t as severe as it could have been it was certainly the right decision – after all – we do have a newborn.
We’ll return We’ve returned home with Eli much relieved, thankful and with new experience on how to travel with a baby.
There’s been a lot of talk that the whole Irene thing was “overblown”. I disagree. Like Bloomberg said, “…better to over-prepare.” There are still millions affected by power outages, flooding, lack of food and resources, etc. and will be for days to come. So please, shut up from the sidelines.
