As we're coming up for Halloween.....

I thought I would share a graphic I found on Pinterest.  If you click on the names below it will take you to their collections.


With Hurricane Sandy heading our way I am not sure if I will be on line tomorrow, it all depends on whether our electricity is cut off.  We have been without when we have had storms in the past.  Consequently I maybe a bit scarce for the next few days.   

A blizzard warning has been issued for the mountains of West Virginia, Maryland and Virginia, with up to two feet of snow possible.  It doesn't look like we will be getting any snow but have been told to expect 4 to 7 inches of rain starting tonight, going through to Tuesday, with sustained winds of 35 mph and peaked gusts up to 60 mph.  All Federal Offices are closed to the public and I'm sure there will be many school closings tomorrow.  That means Gregg will not be going into DC tomorrow.   Looks like we will be battening down the hatches instead.  He has already been outside  taking things inside that might become flying objects.  All our neighbors have been doing the same.  

I have not had much computer time lately and I apologize if I am not getting round to your blogs to say hi.  This evening I will be trying to catch up with as many blogging friends as I can.

Denise, what a cute Halloween graphic. I do hope you stay safe in the upcoming storm. The news is making a huge deal about this storm, I am just hoping our electric does not go off. I heard schools in Maryland have already been announcing their closing tomorrow. Take care!

Hi Denise, hope that you and yours will be safe from harm during this storm. Currently, on the VA eastern shore we are getting buckets of rain that started coming down heavily late Sunday afternoon. The wind gusts have not been too high thus far for which we are grateful. We are also keeping in contact with relatives along the eastern shore in NJ, PA, RI and CT. And, we also secured all outdoor items and filled the cars and portable generator.
