Bread used to be here
The early bird gets the bread, really!
If nothing more New Yorkers are making sure they have enough food for the weekend. Hurricane Irene
has certainly sent New Yorkers shopping. This is a scene from a local supermarket in Brooklyn, New York City. There is no bread. It must be true then, “man shall not live by bread alone.” If you need food or anything, you’d better get going now. The early worm gets the bread.New Yorkers believe hurricane Irene is coming for sure.
New York City
Hurricane Irene insists on coming to America, so we are getting ready on the east coast. We pleaded with her, but Irene don’t listen. She is still coming. Ok! Bring it on! We’re ready for you.
Irene and Travel
Don’t even think about it. Hurricane Irene is now in North Carolina. In New York and New Jersey we wish we could close the turnpike, but she will just come on the Atlantic Ocean. Seriously, if you are traveling to New York City, you stay put. All public transportation will cease operation at noon today. That means no subways, no buses, no Long Island Railroad (LIRR) and the three major airports (LaGuardia, John F. Kennedy, and Newark Liberty) will shut down at noon. People- the name of the game is safety first. If you need more information about New York City, please click here http://www.nyc.gov and you will be taken to the city’s website. Also, you can contact the Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA) at 718-330-1234.

No Keys to the City of New York for Irene
Unless you were in the supermarket today, you would have no idea a hurricane was coming to New York. People were going and coming from work, in the night I saw people dressed for party, and life seemed normal. Maybe they have no idea what the other people are so concerned about. They’re probably saying, “who is Irene and why is she coming to America? Perfect Storm? No such thing. As one who experienced a hurricane with winds of over 150mph, I know Irene will not receive a warm welcome. There will be no keys to the City of New York for Irene. Instead she will be met at the shore line with sand bags, chairs, pillows, and that will be the end of that.
