Hurricane Sandy.

Looking at the Weather Network, it looks like Hurricane Sandy is going to hit on the west coast and will effect New York state.  The news on the radio is that the transit system in New York city is closed as of 7:00 p.m.   Hopefully, none of you are in its path and won't have anything to worry about.  Jane and I living in southern Ontario and along the great lakes may have to contend with lots of rain and high winds, even though we are both miles apart, but this storm is quite expansive.  We do live miles apart, but we are in the great lakes basin.  Thankfully, we are not in the direct "hit" zone, but we will feel the effects of this storm.  We may get wind gusts of over 60 mph, on Monday and going into Tuesday morning.  Then again, when this type of weather comes up, it is often hyped up.  So maybe we will just get a lot of rain. 

LOL....My Misha was getting ready for the heavy rain as she spent most of the afternoon cuddled up under my plastic table cloth.  She did come out from her rain cover to grab a snack earlier.  At the moment it's 9:40 p.m. and she's snuggled up on her blanket on the futon and Sammy is stretched out on my lap.

Its been a cold and damp day here, lots of rain and cold temps.  I have been wearing my comfy and warm heavy cotton lounging pants and a similar shirt all day.  They are warm and comfy and Sammy loves to be on my lap for the warmth.  Not to mention he keeps me warm and comfy too.   LOL....My macho boy doesn't  mind his nose and ears being scatched while he's on my lap. 

Having said all of that, we are buttoning down for what Sandy is bring us, but as we are a good distance away, I am hoping and praying for the folks in NYC.  Hopefully, none of you are in its path.

All the best,

CMEvelyn: Thanks so much for your thoughts and prayers. We are near Toronto Ontario and we can only wait to see if it will be really bad or just more media hype.
