Everything is so peaceful right now. The girls are taking some of the dogs to the Halloween parade at 3. They aren't IN the parade, but they will be dressed in costume watching the parade. I love our little town.


And looking at the forecast, we will be without sun until next Friday. Rain most of the week. We haven't really seen the sun since Monday or Tuesday of this week. OH WAIT - it is shining now! Must be a sign of hope for me!

Nikki - nice that you got our early! You have to love that!!!

Jen - watching that would make me tired! I did see it on TV and thought of you.

I think we have done everything we can to prepare for Sandy. I hope we did. Tomorrow we're going to get a turkey breast and roast that so we can have yummy food if we lose power. We will have the generator though. Bill check to see that it works.

Take care all the east coast friends. it sounds like you will be well prepared. I will keep you in my thoughts.

I bought a new printer. I am so tired of the pages coming out crooked. One of the wheels that pull the paper through is not moving. DS said he would set it up when he gets time!
DH is working this weekend, He is having many problems. I really do worry about his mental and physical state.

Filled up the car and two containers with gas. I don't think we'll lose power, but you never know. I'm guessing they'll cancel school for Tues.

It's starting to get really windy here. I'm not sure if that has anything to do with the hurricane or not!

It is definitely very cloudy and windy right now so Reynold is removing our flag, ornaments, etc. from the yard. We are freezing bags of water for the fridge and can only pray for safety for everyone.

My flag - thank you Caterina! I meant to bring it in when we got home from church. I'm going to get it right now! OK - got it!

I'm hoping and praying that this storm isn't going to be as bad as expected but the news just keeps getting worse. Bill just went out to look for something, I can't remember what it was. He wants to check the gutters one more time as well.

Cat - my friend who lives in Clarksville, MD, called and said they were notified at noon that their schools were closed. Our district is closed Monday and Tuesday and there was a message on our answering machine that Julie's classes are cancelled tomorrow. I imagine they will close on Tuesday as well.

Bill was supposed to go to Norfolk on Tuesday evening. He got a call SATURDAY evening that the flight was cancelled. He doesn't know what he is doing now. He's not making any plans until Tuesday.

I talked to my mom and she said it hasn't even started raining there yet. It rained a little here during the night and it is raining and has been (not a lot) for several hours. I thought we'd have more wind by now, but I'm not complaining. We could get 4-8 inches of rain. My parents are only supposed to get 2-4. That is a change from what they'd been expecting.

Just home from visiting my Dad all day...trying to catch up on the storm news...Please take care...

I recently saw a survival kit at costco...I thought, who would ever need such a thing? It was enough food for several weeks in a big box. It reminded me of my grade school days when the school had a special room full of canned food, we were always afraid of the Russians/and flying saucers!

I now know why such a thing would be a good thing to have...reality has set in...

I am watching the weather station, Point Pleasant Beach, NJ. Sandy is over 11 miles away, and the beach is covered, with high waves. They are showing how LARGE Sandy is, in diameter (bigger and more powerful than Katrina)!!!
I am not only worried for my wonderful, precious friends, but I am also afraid for our country!!! I pray that people that need to move inland do so with speed, and the others are prepared to stay safe and possibly sustain for weeks. God Bless Our Country!

We're doing OK. It'll start here around noon. Better get in the shower, just in case we lose power!
