So, though i'm early not on the east coast, i've been glued to the tv/computer because my family and friends are getting pummeled by this weather. High tides, full moon had the shores flooding before the storm even technically made landfall, throw in some 90 mph winds, it's not pretty.
I woke up to this picture from my sister
My dog is terrified of thunder and lightning. She shakes uncontrollably and is inconsolable, etc etc. My grandma bought her a "thunder jacket" which i'm assuming is a weighted jacket, similar to the ones they use for kids with sensory issues (my only experience with them) -- no verdict on whether or not if works, but then again, not sure anything would work with the "perfect storm" hitting..
Later in the day, I got this text. Hard to see, but yes, thats a shark off my friends porch! See what i mean about the flooding? I never even thought about the flooding and how it would affect the marine life.. sheesh!
Anyone remember my favorite summer place? Chincoteague Island? This is what it's looking like now..
1.6 million are without power in NJ and the storm continues to rage on. I've seen pictures of people surfing.. seriously! Don't be dumb, stay safe everyone, the entire east coast is getting hit! Sending prayers and thoughts to you all.
