As we finish our final preparations for Hurricane Sandy aka Frankenstorm and have no idea how this will turn out, I’m taking a break from political stuff.
To anyone who is in the path of the storm, please stay safe.
Perhaps this will be a big wake up call to all the climate change deniers.
From 350.org on Facebook yesterday:
“A storm unlike any that meteorologists have ever seen is heading for the East Coast of the United States. We’re hoping that it won’t be so bad, but if it is, we’ll know why.
The media is not doing a good job reporting this part of the story — SHARE this and connect the dots between climate change and extreme weather, even if they won’t!”

I’m wishing everyone well: All people, animal creatures great and small, trees, homes, businesses, bridges, tunnels — everything. To all those who are working hard to keep us safe, emergency workers, police departments, hospitals, mayors, governors, electric and power companies, reporters, journalists, everyone –thank you for everything you’re doing to keep us safe up and down the East Coast.
This was the sky here yesterday afternoon. It’s getting a bit windy but is still relatively calm-ish. Birds are circling and tweeting and squirrels are scurrying about. The hatches are battened down. We’re as ready as we can be.
This is a big oak that’s on our neighbor’s property that we love and enjoy.
Max helped us set up a Command Central on our kitchen table. He’s actually quite excited and is looking forward to the potential power outage so he can use his flashlight(s). I don’t exactly share his enthusiasm for power outages, but we should be fine if we do have one.
Be safe and sound,
