|We wish Sandy would go Trick or Treating out to sea.|
Every device is charged up, the batteries, candles, flashlights, food, water, plus ice and coolers are ready to go. Luckily we have cooking gas, and a gas log so we can still cook and be warm. Many of my friends have added a big, old bottle of booze to their preparations. Me, I'd rather console myself with sweets. I plan to eat all the Halloween candy myself.
We've battened the hatches as best we can, and just plan to sit it out. Actually there is really no choice, is there? I hope that those of you reading this are all safe, warm and dry. And if you are in range of the storm that you are prepared and hunkered down. The old adage, "Prepare for the worst and hope for the best," certainly applies here.
Be safe, and I'll be back as soon as I can. After I finish all the Snickers and Twix.
P.s. 10/31/12: We dodged a bullet here; only lost power for a couple of hours and all our big, old trees are still standing. I still plan to eat all the candy. My thought and prayers are with those who have lost so much due to this violent storm.
