So Earl has moved up north. It took longer to get here than I thought. It was just beginning to rain when I feel asleep around 4 am. I slept through whatever hit us. I went outside around noon and it was just raining, so I packed my stuff up and came home. I didn't see any flooding or damage on the way home. I'm surprised since last year's Nor'easter did far more damage. I guess Earl didn't get close enough to us.

So I guess that's it! :)

It's midnight and so far, it hasn't even rained and the wind is barely blowing here in Va. Beach. I'm watching the news and it looks like it's blowing pretty hard in Kitty Hawk, NC.

I went to Food Lion earlier today and stocked up. This is what I got:

* a bag of rolls from the bakery
* some Ramen noodles
* Fruit Roll-ups (BOGO with MVP card)
* 2 1-liter bottles (99 cents apiece with MVP card)
* three 15-ounce cans of Green Giant vegetables

Luckily, I'm staying with my father (who coincidentally has the middle name Earl) and he has a ton of canned goods and 10 gallon jugs of water. He didn't even lose power when Isabel came through in 2003, so I'm hoping he'll have similar luck this time. Plus, I worry about him some time. I'm a little worried about my mother too, as my stepfather is out of town and she's riding it out alone this time, but she's younger and more resourceful than my father. Plus, she has a next door neighbor who has helped her out a lot over the years.

The two of us are supposed to leave for Annapolis, MD so time tomorrow for out annual family reunion. Earl is supposed to be gone by the afternoon, so hopefully things will work out.
