Hurricane Irene made landfall in New York 2 days ago. My mom had been so mad because she was supposed to go to Toronto for my Aunt S’s birthday but her train was cancelled and she has been grumpy since then. It had been non stop raining so peeing and pooping were hard. Even my dad had been grumpy because I couldn’t pee and poop on demand and he would have to get wet with me.
Some low-lying roads are still like rivers. Some buildings had been condemned because their foundations have been compromised. There are still a lot of homes without power.
On the bright side, my mom got so bored she cooked chicken for me and chicken skin chicaron for herself. She even cooked vegetable ulam for my dad.
Life Lesson: There is always a silver lining. Sometimes you just have to look harder for it.
