Sandy So Far

I am sure just by watching the news

you know where Hurricane Sandy is at the moment.

(The view from our dining room.)

So far in this part of New Jersey,

we have experienced wind gusts and some heavy downpours.
But they are forecasting the storm to become much worse…

Check out the front page of this morning’s Star Ledger.

When I brought Rosie outside around 11:00 a.m.,

this is how things looked.

You can’t really see much but if you look at the bushes,

you will see which way the wind is blowing.

The rain has slowed down a bit
but it is still very windy.

I had to use the leash because Rosie

wanted to chase every flying leaf and piece of debris she could find!

She would stay out there all day if I let her.

Yes, my house is beginning to smell like a wet dog.

Stay safe everyone!

If you don’t hear from me,

it’s because our electricity went out.

I will try to update from my iphone if I can.

The schools are closed today and tomorrow.
Who knows how our Halloween will be!

Are you being affected by this crazy storm?

    I'm in the panhandle of WV dealing with this storm as well. It's been raining here since last night and the winds are picking up. Expecting 70 mph winds by 8pm. Hoping the power stays on but prepared either way. Good luck in your area.

    Update–still no power. Several shingles are off the roof and the screen came off the garage window. Winds are gusting but the rain isn't too hard yet.

    Thanks for the update. I hope a few lost shingles are the worst you get. Praying!
