Woe is Brighton Beach and the Russian Dolls! The Brighton beach Jubilee has been cancelled for this weekend thank to Hurricane Irene! Officials decided that it would be too dangerous to go ahead with plans this weekend. The event is being rescheduled for mid September.
Meanwhile our Russian Dolls are being driven out of Brighton Beach due to the mandatory evacuations. We got word that some of them are ok and carrying on with their usual shopping sprees despite the bad weather. Last night Marina got her done as well as a mani, pedi for Michael's birthday. She says, "I can't believe the stupid hurricane had to happen this weekend!" This morning they were leaving the city as they are in zone A and must evacuate. They took two cars.
They stopped at Woodbury Commons on the way to the hotel to do some shopping. Eva bought a fur Russian Hat for winter. Then they had a change of plans and decided to go to the Poconos, because the kids would have a better time there. they arrived safely minutes ago. Eva summed up the whole experience by saying, "Irene I am not your friend, I ran away from you."
How are the other dolls? You'll have to check back and see if we get word! Until then, everyone be safe!
