Eyewitness News from the Hurricane

News from New York:

Irene was lame.

Tucker described the hurricane on the north side of Long Island as "weak.  Hardly any damage.  Not as fun as a good AZ monsoon."

Hmm.  New Yorkers have always portrayed themselves as tough.  Guess I knew deep down in my gut that a desert rat could outlast a sewer rat any day.

Tucker's latest letter is here. He's getting a new companion today.  Lucky him!

And I'm so glad he's promising pictures.  I haven't had any since the MTC.


  1. Wondered about Tucker and the hurricane. Glad to hear. Please send me his new address when you get it. Have fun with the Brubakers.

  2. I just read a couple of your son's recent posts - you must be so proud of him.

  3. Glad all is well with Tucker. I'm heading off to catch up with him.


  4. Well, much better a boring storm than a dangerous deadly one. My kids said pretty much the same thing - they were not in harm's way at all.

  5. Good thing it was lame in the end :)

  6. Overprepared vs underprepared. I think the hype was worth it!

  7. Glad to hear that he's doing well and that the Hurricane didn't affect him. You are the second blog I've read that's talked about how overhyped Irene was. :)
