We dodged a Halloween bullet

We don't live that close to the ocean but hurricanes and weather events have taunted us for years--

Isabel--loss of power for 2 weeks and a large tree felled

Frances--Stuck on a cruise boat for 9 days

Derecho--loss of power for 5 days in 100 degree plus heat

And then came Frankenstorm...

Sandy--nothing - 0

Looks like we dodged a bullet when it comes to Frankenstorm.  Yes we were lucky, others not so much.  My thoughts go out to those in areas where the wrath of Sandy was not so kind.  For those in my area--this time at least we could have nicknamed her Hurricane Houdini (Honestly why can't they name hurricanes more creatively? ) since she was in and out before you knew it.

I hope that my friends and relatives in New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, and those closest to the coastlines have their power restored quickly and do not suffer any damages to property or self.

Happy Halloween!

I'm relieved to hear you were spared this time. You can't be so unfortunate to be hit by every hurricane and have to luck out at least part of the time. Right?
Happy Halloween.

So glad you were missed this time.

Love the punpkin you shared.

Hope Sandy just gets up and leaves. So much distruction left behind, my heart aches for those in it's path.

Happy Halloween...Stop by for some candy!

Relieved to see your new blogpost in the sidebar of my blog as that had to mean that you were safe - and with power!

Watched incredible scenes on TV as New York and the New Jersey coast were hit and the horror of fire in Queens. But very impressed by all the bravery these events brought forth!
