At the time it I felt kind of stupid moving our mattress from the 2nd to the 1st floor and sleeping in the middle of the kitchen. However the morning after the storm I felt a bit better about it … Check out some of the damage from fallen trees in the neighborhood. Happy to report all the trees around my sister’s house lived to see ‘another storm’.
Sandy is coming … Waiting for the storm with a glass of rum and tea around the fireplace at my sister’s place. We were in Charleston South Carolina till yesterday for a wedding. We left Charleston at 4pm and made it back to DC around 2:30am. There were hundreds of utility trucks from all kinds of power companies from Florida and SC driving North in preparation for the storm. It was cool to see.
The storm is still hundred miles from the coast it is raining hard and blowing 40mph wind out here. We expect the power to go down and there to be downed trees so we are probably going to sleep on the 1st floor around the fireplace tonight.
