27 Oct 2012 – and Sandy is her name…
Fri: in spite of delays Jeff arrived safely home and that is most important. Made a salmon and Irish creamed potatoes dinner (a combination of Irish + Norwegian!) for the family. Wishing all muslims Selamat Hari Raya Haji, a safe long weekend to those who are traveling and Happy Bday to my childrens’ Norwegian grandmother Ellen for Sat.
CNN: China blocks New York Times website after story on leader’s family wealth… have always said, show me a country with no corruption and will call that country home! But then news like this are not of priority when Mother Nature is demonstrating her fury. North eastern USA is under hurricane warnings with all kinds of forecast churning round. Am watching and tracking it closely –
Hurricane Sandy, storm of a lifetime has been predicted to hit somewhere on the north-eastern US coast sometime next week. Let’s hope and pray that Mother nature will be kinder to the US than to Bahamas, Cuba, Haiti and Jamaica (so far 40 deaths and unfortunately the figure will be more). Family, friends and everyone concerned in those areas, plx take precautions, ie do not taunt with Mother Nature. Above 2 pix downloaded from various sites.
According to a FB friend of friend in FL: Hollywood lost power for a few hours which also is rare since that doesn’t happen through many direct hits. This is not even near any direct hit, image the impact when Sandy finally hits land before weakening…
Anyone who says they’re not afraid at the time of a hurricane is either a fool or a liar, or a little bit of both – Anderson Cooper
