Here We Go Again????

Last August our house flooded because of Hurricane Irene

Last October we lost power for 4 days and missed Halloween due to a freak October snowstorm.

This year, Hurricane Sandy threatens to cancel Halloween again, possibly flood our house and just wreak havoc on NYC Marathon week.  I’m giving Hurricane Sandy a big THUMBS DOWN and maybe sticking my tongue out at her too.

I am supposed to be running the Great Swamp Devil 15k this Sunday but who knows now.  This race was canceled last year due to the October snowstorm and rescheduled for December.  I’m hoping Sandy stays away until at least Sunday afternoon.

I’m also crossing my fingers that Sandy doesn’t interrupt NYC Marathon week.  Would they ever cancel the race?  That would be a crazy thing to happen.  Needless to say, I will be stalking the weather hourly for the next couple of days while preparing our basement for possible flooding.  Not how I wanted to spend my weekend. :(

What do you think NYC would do if the storm interrupted the marathon?  Have you ever had to run in a huge storm?

    I honestly can’t imagine anything canceling the NYC Marathon. I don’t even think an alien invasion would cause a cancellation.
