Welcome to Seasonal Sundays!
As the reports of Blizzard Nemo started flooding in, my thoughts turned to Hurricane Sandy. If we lost power again, I wanted to be prepared. What had I learned from Sandy, and how could I do better this time? The wood came into the living room so it would be dry, in the event that became our source of heat. The lanterns sere placed center stage.
As odd as it sounds, one of the things I wanted to change from Sandy, was that I wanted to have more fun with it. If we lost power, there wasn’t a darn thing I could do about it, but I could change my attitude. I was not a happy camper during Sandy, being without power for 6 days. Nor were my children. What’s the old saying? If momma ain’t happy, nobody is happy. So I thought, at least I could have a little fun with my camera. This is what it looked like around 11:30 pm as I let my doggies out right before bed.
And this morning! For whatever reason, we got far less snow than most of Long Island. Even our neighboring communities got 13 and 15 inches. We only got about 7 inches. And…the best news was we didn’t lose power!
This was last night with the snow flying…
And this was this morning. Kind of peaceful.
Last night and…
…this morning. Man, I need to get those stickers off of those pots. Funny how sometimes you don’t notice things. Do you think that rosemary will make it through?
And in all fairness, it’s a whole lot easier to have a positive attitude…
…with power!!! We’ve been told not to travel, unless necessary. Many of the highways are closed. I’m pretty happy to be snuggled up at home with my family.
So, what have you been up to? Can’t wait to hear. It’s always so neat to hear what everyone is doing, whether they be near or far.
