When you've made all the preparations that you possibly can, the only thing left to do is to handle the anxiety of uncontrollable events like Hurricane Irene. Humor and ukulele are our favorite coping strategies. Hope everyone comes through okay.

Thanks, RoxHum. We've always appreciated the way that UU member, John Pak (keonepax and paxukulele) posts lyrics and chords on his videos, so that we can play along. We think that Irene is a good reason for us to strum together, too.
