Got a “Hurricane” playlist?

Hurricane evacuee Humphrey

Hurricane Irene approaches. We’ve got two extra guests this weekend: my Mom and Humphrey, her labrador retriever. They were evacuated from Long Island and are spending the weekend with us.

Waiting out a storm can be angst-producing and, eventually, boredom provoking – particularly without music.

So, File Under ? readers (the comments section is open and so are email, Twitter, Facebook, and G+), send us your “hurricane” listening lists – either in old-fashioned typewritten format or via the usual suspects (Spotify,, etc.). The guidelines are wide open. It can be a themed list or simply musical “comfort food.”

Stay safe everyone!

“Winner” – my entirely subjective favorite gets a prize. Hey, why should Irene have all the fun?
