Irene Update: Fill Those Bathtubs



It’s raining. The wind is blowing. I filled the bathtubs like they said I was supposed to. And I’m waiting for Irene to really start up.

But I’m not exactly sure what I’m supposed to do with these filled bathtubs. I’m not drinking that water. I’m not bathing in it. I’m not cooking with it. And if the power goes out for longer than 24 hours I’ve already planned to take a quick trip out to Fallingwater in southewester PA, where the hurricane didn’t hit.

I’ve always wanted to go there and never took the time off. I love road trips. So why I filled those tubs is anyone’s guess.
