Sandy can’t you see, I’m in misery?!

It’s getting real up in hur, folks. And it’s only the beginning.

The Man is home today due to cancellations.  We lost power for a short time, but it’s back on now.  Last year, during Hurricane Irene, we never lost power, but the sump pump in our basement could not keep up with the overflowing ground water, and our basement flooded a few feet in some areas.  With the exception of killing our furnace (we got a new one courtesey of our insurance company*!), the only awesome thing we lost was our Christmas tree.  We bought another one last year, and guys, I am NOT buying a new christmas tree again!  (that would be our fourth- the first was stolen from our storage unit in our former apartment, but that’s a story for another day).

 “They” (weather people, colleagues, The Man) are saying this is less of a rain issue and more of a wind issue.  Let’s hope “they” are right, cause Sandy is looking a lot more menacing than Irene.

 

 Over and out folks.

 *Of course, the new furnace wasn’t covered by the lovely (expensive) flood insurance our government/mortgagor requries us to keep b/c we live in an antiquated flood zone. No, that only covers water that comes through the windows!

  1. Thank you for this post title! It’s the song I sang when I first heard about the hurricane but my husband said the only Sandy song that mattered was Bruce Springsteen’s. Glad you weathered the storm okay.

    • Oh this Sandy song is much better than the Boss’s!

      We fared very well – much better than some friends who live in New York City and Long Island.
