The Queen of Sheeeba [userpic]
This shed is small.

It's not as big as the one it replaced. Somehow we got everything shoved inside it. Except the flower pots. They're inside the front door. Which makes more sense.

We all think everyone is blowing this thing way out of proportion. But our patio furniture has blown around in a regular summer thunderstorm. And our last shed was ripped from it's foundation during a rain storm. No telling what a cat 1 or tropical storm will do.

Ebony, because she is crazy, is working tonight and had planned to sleep over so that she wouldn't miss working tomorrow afternoon. We all told her she was insane and that she needed to come home tonight and stay put until the storm was over. She insisted that she would just sleep at work because she feared she wouldn't be able to get in (the MTA is planning for the worst and will shut down if things get too bad.)

She was told at work that, no, she couldn't sleep over and that they weren't opening Saturday and maybe not even Sunday. So even her job isn't as crazy as she is.


Here's hoping it's only a tropical depression when it hits us. Sorry North and South Carolina.

She wanted to sleep at the job?

You're right. She's crazy. Plus, even if they were open tomorrow and/or Sunday, they probably would have liability issues with her staying there and would tell her 'no', anyway.

I don't remember where y'all live, but I gather you're not in one of the mandatory evacuation areas. I'm hunkered down, also. If I'm lucky, I'll be over-prepared, but as iampunha says, better over-prepared than under-prepared.

Luck. And tell Ebony that if she learns anything at all this year, it should be "With the exception of emergency services, NO JOB IS WORTH RISKING YOUR LIFE."

It's a 24 hour gym. There are massage beds perfect for sleeping. She got the idea because her boss was upset when Ebony made her way home during last years blizzard.

Ebony has the invincibility of youth. She'll risk hurricanes and blizzards but won't swim in a pool because she saw a news report where a girl had her guts sucked out by the filtering system on prom might once.

Like I said, crazy. Runs I'm the family.
