Hurricane Incoming

I’d wanted to write a bit about The Rising event in FFXIV this week, but never quite got around to it. People in my area have been bracing for the incoming storm, and it’s really been first and foremost in people’s minds right now.

I don’t usually get concerned about hurricanes because quite often, they lurk around, make all sorts off people fret, but don’t usually hit us. This one may be different. It’s still hard to tell, but pretty stressful, especially since the forecast says that the storm will remain in our area for three days (and of course, it would be over a weekend).

This means we’ll be without power and possibly water for days, possibly longer. That’s not including the kind of damage a storm of this magnitude is going to do. And as much as I’d like to be preparing, I’m stuck at work until the last possible moment… which is also stressful.

On top of that, my vacation trip was supposed to be next week. And who knows what’s going to happen with that.

So, basically, I’m probably going to go dark for a while. I hope I’ll be updating sooner rather than later, but nothing promised. Please keep all the folks in the storm’s path in your thoughts and prayers.



  1. Be safe. Better to get out and complain about it just being a big rain storm later. We saw first hand the damage from Sandy years ago here in New Jersey. Some neighbors of my inlaws are still fighting with FEMA over insurance claims.

    1. I wish I could get out, or at least work on preparing, but work has not let us out yet. : /

      Thanks, though. Will do the best we can to get through it! Storms are fickle, and can decide to do anything at the last moment.

      1. Aywren: Any chance we will get let out early so we can make preparations?
        Work: For?
        Aywren: The Hurricane?
        Work: Well, if you feel that the safety of yourself and family are more important than your job…..

    1. The big issue is you never know where something like this is going to go. But at the size and intensity of this storm, we’re promised to get something from it, it just depends on how it turns on how bad it’s going to be. Right now, we’re directly in the forecasted path, and we’ll hopefully know by this afternoon if we have to work tomorrow.

  2. Iā€™ve been thinking of you! My husband says he thinks the storm is dissipating, I wish it would lessen greatly before landfall for your sake and for everyone who will be affected. Take care, be safe!
