Choose Your Own Adventure: Hurricane Sandy

For a while now I've been looking for a good reason to mention "Choose Your Own Adventure" books in a post; you know, just because.  So with people all over the east coast sitting at home today waiting for the power to go out, it seemed like as good a time as any.

185 of them published from 1979-1998
If you'd like to read about what preparations were going on last year when Hurricane Irene was coming, click here.  If you're more interested in a sarcastic take on Irene, and the storm the year before that (which both turned out to be busts around here), go to this page.  If you're curious about my crazy idea of how technology should be able to stop natural disasters before they hit, jump back to 9/2/11.  If you'd just like to be distracted and entertained (for both sports fans and not), read here to learn about which concessions the Fenway Park vendors probably like selling the most.  Or, if you'd like to know what it's like outside along the water in Boston right now, continue on to the next paragraph.

2:44 pm - There's some light rain.  It's windy.  Really windy.  An empty beer can flew by me, bouncing along 5 feet into the air down the sidewalk.  Below is a video clip of what's happening at the beach.  It's very loud, and there's lots of sand blowing around everywhere.
