Hurricane Sandy has made her presence known and I’m hoping she leaves soon! She’s causing a little bit of drama and I want her out.
The head of Marketing released our department around 3:30, and when we made it across the street, the parking lot was deserted. Clearly everyone left earlier in the day. Gold’s Gym also closed early, making the parking lot appear even more of a ghost town.
Jen (in purple) and I were smart in taking an early lunch and going to Gold’s around 12:30 before they closed. I got in a cardio session that included a 1.5 mile run and 20 minutes on the elliptical. Never enough time!
I was able to catch up on Hurricane Sandy while ellipticizing. This bitch is a nasty one!
After leaving work, I literally threw myself in my car to get cover, and upon starting my engine, I was welcomed with the red gas light. Cool. Almost out of gas in the middle of a hurricane. No big deal at all.
I made it home and was lucky enough to be able to turn onto my street before the road was closed. It’s hard to tell, but under the 3rd dot on the lines on the left hand side of the road, there’s a tree down. Trees are always falling left and right on that street, it’s scary.
I was told prior to coming home not to park in the garage in case we lose power in the middle of the night, so instead, I parked in front of the door. Well, apparently the wind didn’t want to play basketball and knocked our hoop down.
With 3 feet to spare, my sweet Jax was spared from injury. Talk about a heart attack car!
It’s been a good night and so far we still have power. Knock on wood. I completed Chest & Back of P90X, prepared spaghetti squash for the week and am now about to cozy up with Gone Girl and my favorite Yankee Candle, Meadow Showers.
Hope everyone on the East Coast is staying safe. If you’re out of Sandy’s path, be thankful! The winds are picking up pretty heavily. If you see a post tomorrow you’ll know Sandy didn’t blow me away. 🙂
