Almost thought I was going to lose the roof of the house, have to deliver a baby on the couch, and then swim to safety out the front door….
Or so the news had me convinced would happen. They really pumped this storm up… My poor mother and family in general on the West coast was frantically worrying and closely monitoring the news… My advice was to just turn it off, because nothing they said was happening was happening to us.
Truth be told, the storm did turn out to be pretty serious. A recorded 7.4 million without power up and down the East coast and from what I’ve seen in New York, probably four to six times that number in monetary damages and that’s probably a way under guess….. What a mess Sandy made…. You think Mother Nature would at least teach her storms to clean up after themselves. How rude.
We got lucky though. Aside from some winds and rain, we didn’t even lose power. Had to go pick a friend of mine up who did, but we got lucky. Marie spent the bulk of the “megastorm” playing video games on the computer. To sum it up, we roughed it out…. 2012 style.
There are some roof shingles laying about on the grass, parking lot, my windshield…. So I suppose we’ll have something to worry about…
That’s the latest here, hopefully power companies can get people their power back soon. At least it’s not way cold or deathly hot, we lost power in our old house over the summer in the middle of a heat wave for almost a week. Temps in the 105 made for a rough week with not even the option to turn a fan on…
Well, back to waiting on baby to make her grand appearance. This mobile blogging option is pretty handy. Makes it a lot easier to crank posts out, haven’t had time to sit and write much lately. Stay close, baby will be here soon!
