Our plan was to go into New York tonight, grab the kid and head North, but now it seems unrealistic to drive into New York, and it looks like we wouldn't be able to grab the kid until too late.
So, we're riding it out in East Hampton, in a house made of wood and huge glass windows. Fortunately, we're on one of the few bits of really high ground in town.
At least, we hope we're riding it out; there may be mandatory evacuations. In which case we're riding it out in the high school. Which doesn't seem much fun at all.
However, "an adventure is an inconvenience properly considered."
We did watch L'AVVENTURA, Antonioni's 1960 masterpiece. It is a strange movie. Almost nothing happens. Some rich people go to an island. A girl disappears. They search for her, but then give up. Her boyfriend and her best friend hook up. Yet somehow, it holds your interest.
How does Antonioni do it? I don't know. And that's why the movie bears watching over and over.

be safe, hope you nail ALL your windows shut(saw a report on TV saying even one window left uncovered can cause the roof of the house to blow off if it gets broken and high winds get in)
One handy hurricane pointer--If cellphone towers are jammed, quit trying to call and make a text. Text messages can get through when calls wont'.
During Katrina, no one I knew had their windows nailed shut, and no one had their roofs ripped off. (Maybe their shingles but not their roofs.)
