Yeah, but Sandy let ol' Bloomerlips know who is boss. He is a blow-hard trying to force people to do his will. This is his pay-back, too bad so many good folks have to suffer thanks to him.

Well best of luck to you. I'm in Michigan and we're getting 40+mph winds and snow; nothing we haven't seen before. Of course yesterday everyone was panic buying at the Walmart so I imagine their shelves are empty today. I'm just sitting here canning the last of my pears & watching all the whiners on tv who act like it's the end of the world!
I love the snow! But it's true...around here, if the grocery stores are suddenly mobbed, it's because the weather man predicted four inches of snow. I work evenings and often shop on my way home. Everything's cleaned out and you don't even need to ask if snow was predicted. It was.
We got through Sandy okay, and thanks for your well wishes. Power was only out briefly on our street. The winds were awful and kept changing directions, but we didn't, fortunately, got all that much rain. Yet every home on my street has trees down, including us, and some of the houses were damaged by trees...several people in our area, including two children, were killed by falling trees.
I couldn't get to work tonight (shucky darn!) because roads are blocked in every direction, but I look at what happened in New Jersey and Queens, NY, and realize that it could have been much worse. As bad as it was here (much worse than Hurricane Gloria in '85), we're counting our blessings.
