Stupid Hurricane Irene.
We’ve been planning this Delaware beach vacation for a few months now. We originally intended to go on vacation in mid-August, but the condo we were looking to rent in Bethany Beach was no longer available. That worked out, since I had some stuff come up at work. We moved the vacation to the last week of August instead. Initially, this seemed to work out, as our original vacation week turned out to be a rather wet week, and who wants to be stuck indoors on a beach vacation? Not I.
Fast-forward to today, and we have Hurricane Irene blowing its way towards the East Coast, and the Delaware governor has issued a mandatory evacuation of non-residents from those shore communities. Rats. I hope we’ll eventually be able to get down there, and that there won’t be too much damage to the area. For now, it seems we’ll be vacationing at home for the next 1-2 days.
