Our meteorologists here in Central New York are telling us we "dodged a bullet" as Hurricane Sandy turned inland in a location and lesser strength that eased its effects here. We had lots of wind, but very little rain, so far. More wind and rain is expected today. The power went out last night around ten'ish, so we all just went to bed. It was only out for a couple of hours, though, so there was coffee this morning, thank the Goddess!!
Our friends in New York City and New Jersey did not fare as well. Flooding and power outages, trees down and all kinds of damages. I hope to speak with a couple of my blog friends today, if they have power/phone service. My daughter texted last night that she was without power; she lives north of Albany, NY. I hope to talk with her too, today.
I am very thankful for our good luck here in the Syracuse area and send out wishes that everybody else affected by this storm are doing okay! Hopefully this will be it for weather-related problems!!!
I certainly have enough peanut butter and batteries to last a while!
