Great news, guys! Irene passed us with nary a problem to show for it. Some streets in our town flooded and lots of people lost power, but nothing happened where we are. It was more like a normal rainstorm for us. Thank goodness! So there will be an update next Friday like normal unless something unusual happens. See you then!
Edit: Okay, Page 185 is up! Thank you for all of your concerned comments! We’re doing our best to stay safe through Hurricane Irene. Next week’s update is still up in the air though, it all depends how bad Irene hits us. Enjoy 185 for now!
Original Post: Sorry guys, page 185 is delayed. We’re right in the path of Hurricane Irene so we’re busy preparing for it…you know, hoarding food and water, boarding up windows, putting away anything that could become a deadly flying projectile in 100mph winds and impale us. All of that fun stuff. I’ll try to get the page finished before it hits us, but no promises. Hopefully I’ll be able to get it up by Friday night though.
Also, if we get pummeled and the power goes out, there will most likely not be an update next week. We kind of need electricity to produce the pages, so without it it’s just not possible. It depends on how hard we get hit and if the power goes out at all or not. Let’s just hope it stays on! We’ll keep you updated!
Just a reminder to those who don’t frequent the forum, Algy holds Livestream sessions every Tuesday starting around 9-9:30pm Eastern time. She works on inking and flatting the page for the week’s update so it’s your chance for a sneak peek at what’s to come ;)
You can go here to watch the stream – http://www.livestream.com/straysonline
