"Tell me, what is it you plan to do

with your one wild and precious life?"

Hurricane Sandy is doing a number on our coastline, but Steve and I are quite fortunate in that our street is high enough and far enough from the shoreline that we are doing fine. This photo is of the OV Fishing Pier, which is about twelve blocks to the west of us.
This is actually an intersection near the interstate, about eighteen blocks west. The houses on the right of the photo are on the beach side, so they are receiving some serious flooding.
Meanwhile, we are fine, we both have the day off, and I'm splitting my time between knitting, reading, and browsing the Internet.


Stay safe, wherever you are.


  1. Thanks for checking in, Rose. I've been worried as I watch the news. Glad to see you still have power. Fingers crossed this is as bad as it gets for you.

  2. Good to know...I've been thinking of you. Knitting seems like a great activity to ride out a storm. Glad you're safe and dry.
