Whether you think it’s hype, hurricane Irene is coming, and to say she’s one doozy of a storm is putting it rather mildly. She’s big, she’s powerful, she’s angry, and she’s pretty much going to do what she’s going to do.
NYC has an unprecedented mandatory evacuation in place in many parts of town, particularly along the coast and rivers. But we’re going to feel it. Even if she heads out to sea (which at the time of posting looks extremely unlikely), we’ll hear her knocking.
This is the biggest hurricane to hit the East Coast in 50 years. And she’s now shooting off the odd tornado.
I think we all know how to tune into the weather channel or to the news sites, but our pets, as well as us, are in potential danger.
For me, pets are in the worst position. They don’t know what’s happening. We can’t tell them. What we can do is prepare, have them ready to go if we’re in an area that’s under a severe warning or a voluntary evacuation zone. And we can be calm around them, because they feed off our energy, as well as the energy in the air.
Our brave friends over in Florida, Haute or Not Pets have weathered many hurricanes, so they know what they’re talking about. We’re going to hand the hat of knowledge over to them (it’s sort of like the Harry Potter sorting hat, but better, because this hat gives you information that could save your pet’s life).
