Brookline Patch Column: Dealing With Disasters

Two weeks ago, I noted that people would probably be interested in how Muffin and Squeaker dealt with Hurricane Irene when it hit Brookline as a tropical storm. But Nomi and I were still processing the event. (Although I did note how it felt like time travel to me, and Nomi had two short posts about our experiences.)

But finally, we were ready to discuss it. The Brookline Parent column for Brookline Patch this week, Dealing With Disasters, is about how we coped with the tropical storm. It's not as dramatic as it might have been, for which we are grateful. But it is, we hope, amusing.

Anyway, go read Dealing With Disasters for a link to the Brookline Police Department's Emergency Preparedness Tips if nothing else.
