As Sandy bears down on us with temper flairing and arms swinging, she is raging out of control. Moody and unpredictable. ( Not unlike a woman with p.m.s. ? )
For family  and friends on the "east coast" please be safe. For those in Ontario and Quebec, keep your heads down, she is UGLY

My head is down, my fingers crossed, the cupboards stocked, the propane filled and ready to use when the hydro goes out. Winds are wicked and the water is coming down. The river out back is rising... getting a bit worried. Our worst time is suppose to be between 8pm and 8am tonight. Take care all. Lee

The wind has just begun. They are calling for 100 K winds (er, I think that is about 60 mph. I bought a battery operated lantern today and we are well stocked with water. I am more worried about my hubby getting home after his shift. The worst is supposed to hit sometime tomorrow. I hope and pray everyone is okay! I wouldn't mind the electricity going out for a day -- we have lots of sweaters and blankets... I think of the horrors of Haiti, those poor people who have had even the squalor and tents they still live in, once again destroyed. What's a power outage compared to THAT? Nothing... But I am fretting for those on the coast! May there be NO loss of life! xox

I pray for all in the path of Sandy and especially my dear poet friends if such is their lot. Please be careful, May it just be a blowhard and doesn't blow hard. Love, Joyce
