Hurricane Irene tried to ruin my life this weekend and as of right now, I’m not sure if my house is flooded but my mother and I are fine, thank goodness. My friends and family helped us save a lot of our stuff in case our basement apartment got flooded, so yay to them!
I stayed with my best friend Sarah Rose Villafuerte and we took pictures from her 7th-floor apartment’s window. I took Sarah’s pictures and made a gallery of hurricane aftermath photos on NJ.com/hudson before anyone else on our staff did, woohoo. The Jersey Journal has had a rough time today; power went out at the office.
I hope everyone made it out all right. And hopefully, all my stuff is okay!
