So for those in the direct path, my prayers are with you and may you all be safe. I will be looking at your blogs to see if you still have power and if you are all safe. I suspect that most of the blogs that I read will be about the storm and what it did and didn't do to their lives, their homes and their families.
We spent most of the time this past weekend getting ready. I don't know what "getting ready" for a storm means to you but for us is meant putting away anything outside that can become airborn. Taking photos of the house and yard, in case we need them for insureance claims later. Getting the generator ready, batterities, extra water, extra food, making sure the oil was ready for the lamps, got caught up on laundry, cleaned the house, took the flags down from outside and filled up the car with gas and got some cash out of the bank.
I also made sure that the dogs had all their food ready as well. Since I cook for them, their meals are in the freezer and we have some good quality kibble as well for them. Their evacuation kits are ready to leave if we have to.
I pray that Monday morning finds you all safe. I know that I will be watching tv a lot to see how Sandy is moving and where she makes landfall. Be safe all and I will be looking forward to seeing my prayers answered and that you are all safe.
