the calm

Although it's been windy and rainy since we laid down last night, I know this is the calm before the storm. After hunkering down for Hurricane Irene last year I can't say I'm surprised Sandy is showing up, but I wasn't expecting Frankenstorm.

We are stocked up on canned food, non-perishables, lots of water, batteries for our room lantern (that runs on AA's - yup, it's awesome) and the bathtubs are full. I know power could go out at any time so I am getting clothes ironed in case we have to go back to work before the power returns. Today will be spent working remotely and finishing any final chores so we can ride this thing out.

I hope that everyone up north of DC is prepared and safe. Sending my thoughts and safe keeping's to all of those affected.
