Hurricane Sandy – update

We made it!

According to the weather center, Sandy came overland at the southern tip of NJ, proceeded through central DE and on to Maryland’s Eastern Shore.  We are far enough away from the Chesapeake Bay that we were safe other than trees and swollen streams.

After the storm passed, we had a break from the sheets of parallel rain and wind.  Then around midnight the second part passed over.  It was not as bad as the frontal storm.  However, we did lose power about 2 am.

Amazingly, power returned at 9 am. Thankfully, in time for COFFEE!

It is unbelievable that the Internet is working today.  I have to thank Verizon, a sore spot for most of us who are forced to use their service (it is  the only one available out here), but it returned as the power came on.

I hope all the people who were/are in Sandy’s path does as well.

  1. I was born on Staten Island but have been in Miami since 1954 and have experienced every one here since then. The wind and rain damage can be horrendous but never saw such flooding here. Thanks visit my blog. Funny stuff and great family of followers.

    • Thank you for the visit and comment. I stopped by your site – it is a fun place. Glad I found it.

      My husband is from NYC and has family there. We were in contact with one sister most of the time. It is heart wrenching for those who are still suffering without power.

      Again, thank you.

        • You betcha, cookies are great…..but, I make the best fruitcake in town, according to the relatives who staunchly refused the seasonal treat until they tasted mine.

          Thank you for your interest. BTW – until this case, we were retired to Fla gulf coast and really miss it. someday we will be back.

    • Thank you for your kind words and I hope the remnants of the storm are not continuing on as we are hearing on the news. We were so blessed that trees fell near us, streams were high, and yet we did not lose power until in the middle of the night – then for a short while.
