Hurricane Sandy is Here

I took these pictures this morning. Since then, the wind and rain have gotten worse and conditions promise to deteriorate as Sandy makes landfall later tonight. We are hoping for the best.

The back porch was already soaked from the wind and rain first thing this morning.

We have several big trees in our yard that we are concerned about. Many of them drop branches even in mild storms. We are hoping they can withstand the almost 90mph winds that are headed our way.

Izzy wanted to check things out early this morning. Don’t worry, she wasn’t in any danger. This was taken before the winds picked up. I would never put one of my darlings in harm’s way!

This bird was trying to weather out the storm this morning in one of the birdhouses on our shed/workshop. Haven’t seen him since about 10am, though. I hope he is safe.

I took this picture through the back door looking just a few minutes ago. The winds have blown in the screen on the screened-in back porch.

As I mentioned in my last post, I spent a lot of time this weekend bringing in my potted plants. They are safely sheltered in the greenhouse, or at least I hope they’re safe!

Izzy and Molly are getting nervous. Molly is hiding under a blanket on the loveseat.

That’s Molly’s fuzzy paw.

Izzy is hiding under the slipcover in the living room (this is where she hides whenever she gets scared). Like we wouldn’t notice the big lump on the sofa!

The wind is kicking up more and the power almost went out. Think it’s time to shut down the computer.
