Hunkering Down

I don't have much to say.  We've been doing storm prep even though we are inland because Irene brought us major flooding and high winds brought down many trees and we had power outages for a week.  NYC and the NJ coast is already taking a hell of a pounding.  We are expected to feel the brunt of Sandy in just a few hours.  The acre we live on is quite heavily wooded so trees coming down is always our most immediate concern.  Guess we'll see you all on the other side of the storm.  Praying for those much closer to the coast than we are.

Just crazy how many people are 'in play' for this thing. . .

I'm not exactly sure where we are relative to Sandy, but they're predicting 20-foot waves on Lake Huron this evening. . .

You all just stay hunkered down. Prayers are on their way. . .

Hell of thing to happen at the tail end of a "quiet" year.
Be safe and be well.

We felt its reach up here, last night. All seems okay this morning. I hope it's the same for you.

Like you needed something else to make your year a rousing success...

We were spared (for the most part) here in MA. There were some who were hit hard, along the coast, and a few trees went down and such, but mostly we escaped serious damage. Personally, the two of us were mostly unaffected, Thank God.

Here's hoping all is OK for you, also.

Thinking of you!!! Hope you and your family are doing well.
We had wind and rain here in Indiana, the outer bands of the storm. I can't imagine what it is like on the east coast if it is this strong in the mid-west. Unbelievable storm!

Waiting for updates here. Fingers crossed you emerge unscathed.
