Waiting for Frankenstorm

Fall color earlier in the week


Today we are cleaning gutters and waiting for the anticipated Frankenstorm that is poised to strike our region tomorrow and last for a few days.  They are predicting power outages lasting several days...eek. We do have a generator but it sure didn't help during last summer's derecho. We struggled and juggled trying to keep things plugged during 100 degree plus days. After 5 days of no power I threw in the sweaty towel and hightailed it to a relative's house with power. This time, thankfully, it will be cooler.

The sad thing is that the beautiful multi colored leaves will surely be a distant memory after this week with torrential rains and (they say) gale force winds.

The stores are already out of batteries, toilet paper, and bread.  Not that I need any...you see I always shop at Costco!  :-)

Signing out....

Crystal clear

I'm glad you are prepared. I hope you don't get the brunt of it and stay safe. :)

Take care Crystal and be safe.

We will only get fringe rain to go with the colder temps.

At least you are prepared. Be safe, take care and lets hope it passes through quickly without damage. Take care.

We're preparing here in northeast PA as well. Yesterday, the store shelves were already running low on a lot of items. Let's pray it's not too severe.

Thinking of you, Crystal and all my US friends and hoping that Sandy will be kinder to you than predicted!

Hope your area doesn't get hit too hard by Sandy. Stay safe, warm and dry.

The stores have been mobbed since Friday in my area! We have been preparing all weekend so if we do get water, we won't lose everything again.

Be safe my friend. I'll be thinking of you.
