Stormy weather

It’s great to live on the water, until you have a hurricane bearing down on you. We are about 50′ from the high tide line and a tidal surge would put the bay smack in our kitchen. I am trying to be zen.  The dogs went to the kennel in case we need to evacuate, I am taking whatever I can upstairs, and the cars will be at the top of the hill. My husband is making donuts and I am keeping the corkscrew out where I can see it.

My thoughts are with all of my readers who are in Sandy’s path. NYC is due the brunt on Monday night so I have scheduled a post for Tuesday and after that, it may be a few days. We’ll see.

  • In Connecticut we are also getting storm ready. After last October’s freak ice storm and the 10 day power outage that followed, no one is casual about stormy weather anymore. Stay safe!
