We had some weather

Hurricane Sandy came and went and thankfully we are intact. Parts of the Jersey Shore and NYC bore the full brunt of the storm – and we woke up thinking about those affected.

Here’s the worst of our damage – every leaf on every tree on the lawn.


Since Friday, when we first started hearing about the reports, I’ve been stressed. Expecting. Waiting. Here’s where I’ve been stationed. Partly working, partly parenting, full-time meteorologist groupie. Wrapped up in a blanket staring at radar. I could run those reports at this point.


Speaking of blankets, during our 24 hour stint in Vermont, I did some shopping. Let me tell you about The Vermont Flannel Company. They are the new love of my life. They make this 8 pound, flannel patchwork blanket that lulled me into a deep, safe sleep when I wasn’t stalking the TV.

Not a paid advertisement, just some facts. To all my East Coasters our there – stay safe!

    We made out well, too — although I have one kiddo home with a lingering fever and cough (STILL, from Saturday). I had readied our basement for habitation, in case of too much wind upstairs, organized all of our flashlights, gathered towels and blankets, and strategically stationed Yankee Candle jars about (in appropriately fall harvest scents, of course!). The, “nothing” happened. Which, of course, was fine by me.

    Love the look of that blanket — looks like WOOL, which I can’t stand, but flannel? SUPER!!!!

      Hope the little one is on the mend soon (does that mean no Halloween for the poor thing?). I swear the blanket has some sort of sleep inducing technology sewn in.

        Thank you — yes, we will be passing on the annual trot for tooth rot this evening. He and Evan were ambivalent about the whole deal anyway, for the first time, this year. Now that Will’s sick, and it’s COLD and rainy here, Evan seems content to give out the loot. They prefer unseasonably warm Halloweens (as do I!)
