Places I loved all my life

Standard

We’re waiting on the ‘monster’ storm Sandy to arrive. Today I picked up a few things outside that I thought would get tossed around in the wind and rain we are expecting within hours. We put tarp down in hopes that the water would run away from the foundation and not go in the basement. We have lots to drink, enough ice for a few days and flashlights and candles. It seems she will take her good ol’ time coming inland and staying a bit. Right now it’s rainy and a bit breezy.

So I am worried about our beaches and coastlines…we have seen on tv and FB the flooded out streets of Wildwood, NJ  and the waters covering Route 1 between the Delaware beach resorts of Dewey and Bethany. It’s going to be a mess and it’s probably going to be a while before things will be like they were when people are going on vacation in the summertime. I am glad I’m not on vacation now (if we were in NJ/DE/MD) as I’d be scared about where I am and what’s going on at home.

Brian’s a bit under the weather and I hope that Sean and him can tackle any labor this may make them go through. I won’t be able to do much leaning over as my hip has been bad this weekend. I did have one good night, not sure what I did, I took one glucasomine chondroitin that night.

Wish us well and again…we are on standby. We will be filling up pitchers of water and the tub tomorrow morning. We need the tub water for the toidy. Not fun.

I think this is Atlantic City, NJ about 1975

  1. Hi Dianne,
    I hope you are all safe.

    I never thought of filling the bathtub for the toidy–thanks for that idea. If we should have a big storm headed our way, I will most certainly do that.

  2. I do hope that you weren’t affected too much by Sandy!! We had some high winds and some rain/snow but that’s about it. Just hard to believe that the tail end of Sandy would even reach Northern Ontario!! I’ve been watching CNN and it’s so heartbreaking to see all the devastation everywhere. I’ve been to Atlantic City and walked on that very boardwalk that is now half gone…really sad. As you say, so much of the shoreline and such will have changed due to this hurricane.

    Today it’s pouring rain so I hope it stops for a bit this evening for the trick or treaters!! xoxo
