Hurricane Tracking

A few snippets of what dodging Hurricane Irene has been like:

Wednesday night: Decide not to evacuate based on the National Hurricane Center forecast, which has shifted the projected track to the east and over the ocean for 48 hours.

Thursday ,7 am: Uh oh! The NHC’s projected track has changed overnight. Now the eye is again passing over Virginia Beach. Rethink everything.

Thursday, 8:15 am: Arrive at work. Find my office overtaken by balloons, signs, and paper streamers. Oh yea, it’s by birthday. My team has bought breakfast – yum!

Thursday, 2 pm: No change in the track. Now to find a hotel that takes dogs.

Thursday, 3:30 pm: Hotel in Richmond booked. “Pets are family too.”

So…

Today is my birthday, and when I arrived at my office my team-  Angela, Melissa and Martha- had decorated it thoroughly, with help from several of our associates at Amerigroup. The best part might well be the chocolate cake from Sugar Plum Bakery. I also learned that balloons behave quite strangely when filled with M&M’s.
