I Bet You Knew I'd Have Some Posters For Sandy.
I Didn't Want To Let You Down.
If You Don't See A Blog On Tuesday, You'll Know I Lost Power.
For Those Of You Facing Sandy over the next few days...
Stay Safe.
For The Rest Of You...Behave...Get That Exercise Done ...PUSH THAT TUSH

Sheryl

In case you are curious... the pictures came from the film
THE DAY AFTER TOMORROW (2004)

I cooked all my meat yesterday, individually wrapped each portion, and put it in the freezer. I'm thinking of doing the same to some brown rice.
I'm making hard boiled eggs right now and filling up plastic containers with
water to freeze them, in the hopes that in the event that I do lose power for an extended period, it will help keep my freezer cold.
The cell phone is totally charged, I've got loads of candles (real and flameless),
I have a couple of battery operated lanterns, and I even have a tarp and duck tape.

As I said ... I went thru this before...
last time the temp was still mild, but 55 degrees feels plenty cold when you've been sitting in it for a few days. I learned to use the rack from my toaster oven, to set up a small stove, so that while I had the real candles burning, I also had a teapot above it...and I was able to have a warm cup of tea throughout the day.

    Ha! Loved these. Especially the one about the treadmill, because I am going to have to resign myself to doing that in the morning. I'd much rather run outside, normally, but....it's snowy and slushy here and I am NOT running in that mess! You sound like you were super-prepared...hope you're doing well!

  Hi Sheryl........
emoticon ed all of your captions, but my favorite was the first one about the umbrella for obvious reasons.
I have been thinking of you and all of my family on the East Coast. What a powerful force Mother Nature is. I hope you are safe and sound. emoticon

  Sheryl. How Cool of you ( probably literally ) to share something to lighten up the seriousness of this storm. Your pictures made me smile.

I woke up three times last night, thinking and praying for our son and friends in New York City. We haven't got news yet.

You have some good plans. Some of he things you mentioned, I wouldn't of thought of. emoticon emoticon
