So the stars aligned and our plan was to drive up to New Hampshire on Sunday morning, unpack and then head to Story Land at 3:00 at which time our tickets would also be valid for admission on Monday. Grammy emailed me Tuesday before our vacation to say that weather.com was predicting rain. I said, "Good. That means that it won't be raining because they are always wrong. Remember last year?"
And then Hurricane Irene entered the picture. Hurricane Irene was supposed to hit our area on Sunday just in time for our departure for NH. Being from New England though, we know that many times, hurricanes fizzle out to not much more than a big rain storm by the time they reach us. We were left with our plans up in the air and at the mercy of Irene. Only time would tell what our fate would be.
Friday night, the girls played outside while Rich and I thought about packing.
The girls were so looking forward to this vacation and I did not want to disappoint them. Four year olds don't understand what a hurricane is.
And yes, sometimes they play outside while wearing pajamas. That's an issue I don't feel worthy of battle.
**To be continued**
I want to add that when I wrote my post last night, I had no idea that so many people were still without power! We were without the internet for four days (and our phones aren't smart) and only turned on the television to entertain/babysit the girls. It's a bit like being in your own bubble. Or living like it's 1991.
