The calm before the storm~

For all my blogger friends that are near the coast, please be safe!  Right now it is so calm around here but we are expecting 10" of rain and strong winds.  I am praying that our power doesn't go out, I really don't want a flooded basement!   The coast of New Jersey was evacuated.  My sister and brother in law live on the coast line, their home is right on the beach.  They drove to their daughters house up here and they are very concerned.
Called the kids to make sure they are all getting prepared, and asking where they are going to be.  One of my sons and his wife were told that they needed to evacuate.  Their whole street was evacuated, because there is a small creek behind their homes.
The news has been on all day, reporting about the storm.
  My neighbor and I got our walk in early today.  Well, I made a commitment to lose some weight.  I joined the web site, http://www.livestrong.com/ .  It is Lance Armstrong's site, and it is really neat.  It keeps track of the food you eat and calculates everything for you.  It tells you how many calories you have eaten, how many calories you burn when you exercise.  I am giving it a try, so far, so good.

Well, I better go and gather all my candles for tonight.  It is better to be prepared!  Are you prepared?

Be safe.

  1. Wishing you well during the storm. We are so far inland, we just have breezy winds and dark clouds. We could use the rain, but it's still dry as a bone here. I'm going to check out the web site. I was just going to sign up for WW's today.
