Inside A Fuse #8 Production

Hurricane ah-coming, hurricane ah-here, hurricane ah-gone

Howdy, folks.

As you may have heard a hurricane recently decided to take an extreme weather-sized bite out of the Big Apple.  Because I live in a blessed bit of high ground in Harlem, my family and I are safe and sound with ample food, electricity, and internet.  Many are not as lucky.  I’ll resume regularly scheduling blogging amidst this insanity (though I really do need to finish the edits on my Candlewick book this week).

Stay dry.  Stay safe.  And Happy Halloween!

  1. Thank you for letting us know that you and your family are safe and dry. How did the library fare?

      Insofar as I can tell Manhattan should be all right. But the Bronx and Staten Island were hard hit. We’ll be hearing about the full damage fairly soon. Fingers crossed!

  2. Betsy,

    Thanks for the update. I am thinking and sending desert dry thoughts in your general direction for the next few days. Good luck on the book edits.


  3. Love you, Betsy!
