Monday Musings

This Monday the wind is howling, heavy rain is pounding the windows and I'm wondering how long the power will last.  The news is filled with warnings, businesses and schools are closing, even the whole transit system in Philadelphia has been shut down.  The perfect storm has begun.

This hurricane is meeting up with another storm from the northwest bringing with it cold temperatures as well.  So just in case power goes out I turned up the heat this morning to warm things up a little.  Not sure that will really keep things warm long term but it helps to at least start off warm. :)

This weekend was pretty much consumed with getting ready for this monster storm.  Storing outdoor stuff in the garage, tying down what cannot be put inside, securing flower pots, cleaning gutters, raking up leaves, stocking up on food and trying to lift anything that cannot handle water to higher ground in the basement. By last night I felt exhausted. Just hoping the power stays on as it would be costly to lose all the food in the fridge, not to mention the blood sugar would rebel without hearty cooked meals.

For now all we can do is wait and see what happens.  Hope for the best and pray for the safety of everyone in this storms path.

Be safe everyone and please no matter what happens take your pets with you.  All shelters are welcoming pets!
