It’s hard to get back into the blogging habit. My break away was long over a drawn out hot summer – we even had a couple of days in the 80’s last week – mid-October! And now we wait to see what excitement Sandy will bring in the next couple of days. We recently had a section of the roof resealed after discovering a damp, buckling wall so, if we get the amount of rain predicted, this will be the acid test.
I went to Safeway this morning as I do a lot of Saturday mornings. There were no express lanes open; no-one had “less than” items except me. It was strange to be standing there with only one tomato, two salmon, a bunch of parsley and a packet of rolled oats surrounded by overloaded trolleys of milk, bread, toilet paper and junk food.
It looked as though I either did not believe the weatherman or might be the only person not to have heard a giant storm was coming this way – something I don’t think possible given the media saturation. And, every time I hear them mention Sandy, that song sung by John Travolta in “Grease” annoyingly pops into my head. Hopefully the hurricane is as benign.
