Sandy Continues

Still here, unscathed and fully powered! I think part of the reason we’ve been lucky so far is because we are so darn used to flooding in this town. We are all prepared.

Other places have not been so lucky. My aunt an hour and a half east of here has had more than 3 inches of rain already, and her power has been off and on since 11 last night. Believe it or not, the western (mountainous) side of the state is under blizzard watches. Lots of “snowicane” jokes from my colleagues out there. Pretty much everything in the area has shut down today and preemptively for tomorrow too. It seems a little odd while I’m sitting here warm and well lit, and the outside looks like this:

The leaves are pretty much gone now.

It is indeed blowing out there.

But while plenty’s been blown about, and there are some trees starting to fall, nothing’s been majorly damaged here. Inside, I’m working happily on this,

I have high hopes for this one.

and my biggest worry is that there’s a hurricane outside and I have exactly this many rain beads left for my Sky Scarf:

NOT ENOUGH!

    I hadn’t thought of that. What a year for a sky scarf on the East Coast!

  3. I’m so glad you are doing ok! I couldn’t believe the photos of New York and New Jersey after Sandy hit. 😦 Keep hanging in there and enjoy that extra knitting time. 😀

  4. Glad to see you’re making wise use of your hurricane days! I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t at least a little bit jealous!
