“And the rain rain rain came down down down” ~ Winnie the Pooh
(That ‘s now two Winnie the Pooh references for me in 2 days. )
Day 2 Hurricane Sandy. I’m tired of hearing her name already.
Things that I can’t get out of my head when I hear the name Sandy-
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_ZfmXzIbHI8 – the song from Grease that John Travola croons out in the Drive Inn.
Sandy hasn’t even really reached us yet. All schools remain closed. Many local roads either closed or unpassable. I am unable to access true storm data. Which you’d think would be available in this day and age. Can’t get rainfall totals or wind gust speeds. But I can tell you that it’s windy as heck and it really hasn’t stopped raining since this morning. It’s 7:00pm or 19:00 hours for you military folks or other daughters of Marines.
My facebook status this afternoon said ~that sad, sad moment when you open the door to leave your doggie out into the raging rain and swirling winds and she looks back at you with those big brown eyes and tilts her floppy eared head like ” are you freakin kidding me? ” My poor Sophie dog. She’s battling ear troubles too and in this wind I really wish I could find a doggie hat or something to send her out in. I suppose dogs don’t really like hats though, do they ?
My Sandy shots so far. Or, photos I should call ” pictures I could take without leaving the comfort of my home” . I came back in as soon as the wind started to blow me away.
I’m so brave.
