Sandy Came

 It was a night of horror, the winds blew in from Hades... and without TV or the web, we had no idea the havoc she wreaked.

 We expected flooding as we live by the river, but lo and behold, leaves were down but all was intact... the meditation paid off.

 The sky showed us some bruising, but disconnected from electricity, we had no idea what was what. Inconvenienced, but safe the winds slowly died.

 The sun came out briefly and so we were hopeful.

 Mother Nature had a cleanse, and some of the beauty did not blow away.
 Just a view from the balcony after the storm. Thankful here, very thankful for a glimpse of the sun. The family is safe.

No power, but concern as the sea gulls have moved inland.

The surveillance team...

 and the government surveillance team... Uh oh. Not good.

 The power is out and it remained eerie at home.

 We celebrated Halloween with the kids... who all had generators. Smart ones, our kids. The grandkids all had fun... unconcerned.

 Still carved a jack-o-lantern in spite of the blackout.
Ancestors still need to know we care about them too.

 The early morning sky on day two... pink clouds!

 A spotlight on our horizon... keep the hope, and so we did!

When we got power, the news was grim. Many people need help and we will do our part. But I will not dwell on the devastation, we have the network news to do that. It is still a beautiful world... and our humanity will make it remain so... in spite of the weather!


  1. Yes, what terrible havoc Sandy wreaked -- glad you came through safe and sound albeit without power for a while. Happy belated Halloween!

  2. Thanks Debra! A Happy belated Halloween to you as well! Brightest Blessings!

  3. I've been thinking about you during the storm and hoping your family was safe. I'm so glad to see you are ok.


  4. Thank you Star! Losing our power was just a minor inconvenience, while losing our TV connection was a blessing. So many people were affected and hopefully we can all pull together and help one another, as the media continues to ramble on about the devastation. The Noreaster brought a lovely first snowfall which is all melted already. Brightest blessings!
