Never thought I’d be writing about the weather on Unreality, but here we are. I’ve no idea if all the weathermen are just crying wolf, but this storm looks to be quite the reckoning, and I wanted to give you guys a heads up that if the site suddenly goes mostly silent, I’m not dead, I’m probably just without power.
Living in upstate New York, I doubt I’ll get the full force of this thing like those on the coast (good luck NYC and Jersey!), but I very well could lose electricity for a rather long time, as has happened around here before. No power = no internet = no Unreality, so if that does happen, understand that the site hasn’t died, and I’ll be doing my best to hunt down some internet somewhere if Sandy does turn out to be a real bitch.
The grocery stores around here are practically stripped bare, and it feels like Y2K all over again. Though instead of nothing happening, we have a big ass hurricane with an overly lighthearted name heading our way. Perhaps this will be Y2K and the threat is overblown, but I figured I’d be prepared. Everyone in the potential path, be safe out there, with thoughts out especially to our writers and readers in NYC and other places along the east coast.
