Hurricane Irene: Bring it on.

Well, I'm all set for Hurricane Irene. I'm actually really excited about it! Yesterday I packed up some survival/rescue gear and I have a bunch of water stored away in the fridge. Camera batteries are fully charged and I'm just kicking around the apartment reading a new book about modern-westernized Buddhism. I don't plan on going anywhere today. Even if I could, NYCT has shut down all public transportation effective noon today.

I plan on getting out and about with my camera during the course of the day. Below are a few photos from the rooftop of my building; nothing too exciting, just overcast with relatively week winds. These photos were taken at 11:00am this morning.

I'm looking for some stormy weather myself, somehow I don't think we'll see much.

Ever hear Jim Reeves sing that song? Awesomeness.

Actually no... I'm surprised...
I'll have to check it out.
On another note, I wanted to hit the beach to check out the swells but there's not been much... BUMMER!

I find swells to be quite swell.

I was raised on Jim Reeves. ...Which may explain somethings.

Those pipes or posts sticking up around the roof would hang a dipole just fine.
