Once finally returning to the island, I was informed that my building does not have a generator, and that everyone should stock up on flashlights and emergency supplies. Thank you doorman, for this notification less than 24 hours before a HURRICANE HITS. At this point its 9 pm, raining, windy and HORRID outside. I'm about to slap my boyfriend for dragging me to Loro Piana, and Brunello Cucinelli earlier on in the day, and venting that instead of strolling down Madison Avenue, we should have been at Home Depot, and Whole Foods preparing. Probably like the rest of the tri state area.
So now our emergency supplies consist of left over food in the pantry such as: Special k, Strawberry Poptarts, frozen Rolos, Pretzal m&m's, Grapes, Carrots....and thats about it. To last us however long as sandy decides to stay.
Long story short: Never disesteem when a hurricane is headed your way, and if you want your skinny jeans to fit..avoid going into Godiva.
