Storm Update and stuff
WIND REALLY HOWLING AND KICKING UP! I don't recall storm winds around here this strong - ever. Front picture window rattles a bit even tho a storm is up too. Wind is scary sounding ...and relentless. I heard on radio today that the Hudson river looked like the ocean. The waves at Point Pleasant (my old stomping ground) are HUGE. I do wish I could be there in person - but of course that's dangerous. Heard they even closed the parkway. If wind this strong up here - I can only imagine what it's like at the beach areas. I pray trees don't break, power stays on and that we all remain safe. Our neighbors basketball thing blew over. Ours is still up but we really have it anchored down. Well ..in daylight it was still up. It feels so cozy inside. I have all the amber candles on in the windows (for harvest season :) and I am truly grateful to be inside.
I wish son didn't have top go out to work. But I guess people go out for booze in a storm. Can't wait until he gets a better job! His college loan payments are about to start. At least he has 2 PT jobs. Some of his friends don't even have that. I DO hope if Romney gets in ...that the change and knowledge of his business experience will breathe hope into businesses and their new found optimism will cause them to begin hiring again.
My God - it sounds like a TRAIN barreling over the roof!
I'm thinking maybe I should shut the computer off now.
Nite all. :)
PS ..wind really sounding scary out there - never experienced this. You southerners in tropical areas prone to these severe storms and at a more dangerous level ...are brave people.
