Rock You Like a Hurricane

We've been hunkering down at Burro Hall Norte for the past several weeks while our AV Division puts the finishing touches on a documentary intended to raise awareness of our need to pay the rent on our Querétaro offices. BH Norte, located in a 20-story high-rise near New York's Central Park, has been moistened considerably over the past 18 hours by Hurricane Irene.

We took all the usual precautions - stocked up on Xanax and gin, filled the fridge with takeout sushi, picked up the Sunday Times as soon as it came out on Saturday, sketched our a few pithy bon mots for our Twitter feed - and have so far managed to survive the ordeal. The weak link, as always, is the perro. After several hours of trying to coax him to pee on the kitchen floor, we've come to realize we'll probably have to take him outside in the 75mph winds. He's heavy enough that he won't blow away, but we're worried that his flapping tongue might take down a power line, leaving us stranded without a working espresso machine. Pray for us.

If, for some reason, the view out your window does not include a hurricane, you can watch it live here:

I was waiting for someone to use that title! Glad you and Jesus survived.

10:50 AM Pacific time, and the live stream view of New York is shaking up and down a bit. Due to high winds maybe?
