Monday, Monday

One thing I’ve learned after a couple of hurricanes and countless nor’easters, while living at this location, is that it’s nearly impossible to get good pictures during the storm. Not only are you fighting the wind, but also a driving rain. And taking pictures while trying to keep your camera dry isn’t an easy task.

This was taken yesterday morning (through our bedroom window). You can see from the trash in the yard, that the tide had receded just a little at this point.

In comparison, here’s a picture I took through that same window back in June.

Today’s predicted to be our worst day in dealing with Sandy, so we’ll see what she has in store for us. I should say that we really don’t expect the water to reach our house.  There’s more of an incline between the water and the house than is visible in the picture.  The tide just comes up really close and leaves LOTS of trash in its wake.

Over the weekend, I was reminded of one of the reasons I’m so glad to be involved in blogging.  It was touching to read the concern fellow bloggers have for folks who may possibly be in Sandy’s path.

I add to those my prayers that Sandy will make a last minute detour and spare our neighbors to the north any hardship.
