As I’ve mentioned before on this blog, I’m a born-and-bred New York City native. And as you may have heard, there’s a bit of rough weather headed our way this weekend. In fact, it seems like freak events are becoming the new normal: first, the absurdly huge blizzards we got this winter, then the earthquake earlier this week (yes, I felt it), and now the hurricane. Sheesh, nature, what did we ever do to you to deserve this? (Don’t answer that.)
There’s no need to fret about me: I’m fully stocked up with supplies, and I don’t live anywhere near the evacuation areas, so I don’t anticipate that safety will be an issue. However, it’s possible that I may lose electricity for a few days, and if that happens, I’ll naturally be a little scarce on the net. I do have an internet-capable phone, and even a solar charger for it – three cheers for ThinkGeek and their catering to survivalist paranoia! – but of course, there’s no way of knowing what the state of the cell network will be. So, if Daylight Atheism isn’t updated for a few days, that’s most likely why. I’ll be back as soon as possible, so don’t miss me too much!Also, a reminder if you missed the first announcement: I’m coming to Chicago over Labor Day weekend. There’s a meetup being organized; if you’re interested in attending, send me an e-mail and let me know. I’ll see it at some point before I arrive.
