Come on, Irene!

No, that's not bad karaoke -- it's the hurricane (or tropical storm) set to batter my region this weekend.

We're ready. We have water, non-perishable food, flashlights, candles, gas in the cars, cash, charged phones, etc. In case the power goes out and stays out, we're covered.

A weekend like this is a good time to catch up on writing or editing projects. Going out is unwise. The TV might not stay on. I have a composition book and a few pens if the power goes out and I have to write by candlelight. If you're on the east cost, be prepared for Irene, and be prepared to do some work on your writing, too. It's not like you'll have much else to do if the roads flood. While the winds are swirling outside, keep your creative winds swirling inside. Sometimes, a story idea can hit you like a 100-mph wind and rock you like a... well, a hurricane. OK, that's the last of my weather (and Scorpions) references.

Stay safe, stay dry, and happy writing!
