Praying for those in Sandy's path

Monday, October 29, 2012

I will keep everyone in Sandy's path in my thoughts and prayers. This is supposedly the biggest hurricane ever recorded for the Atlantic basin.

I am in upstate NY. We are as prepared as we can be, stocked up with provisions. Winds are already picking up, and most likely we will lose power (perhaps up to several days) sometime today or during the night. We are lucky to have a pellet stove for some heat. I did have to run to the store this morning to pick up cat food. I have 5 cats, and I just can't run out of food for them...they are my babies ;)

I'm concerned about my son who lives in Baltimore. He has never lived through a major storm (other than snow) and is nervous. He is a neurosurgical PA and was told all surgeries have been cancelled, to stay home from work for at least the next 2 days. If ER or trauma needs him, they will call as he has experience in both. I told him that he is prepared, to use his head and stay safe. Do we ever stop worrying about our children? I don't think so!

Everyone in Sandy's path, please stay safe.

    You're both in my prayers, as are all those in harm's way.

Keeping you and your son in thoughts and prayers. And, no, we never stop worrying about our children. Once a Mom, always a Mom :) Wind gusts here up to 86 mph and the storm hasn't even hit land yet.

    I live on the east coast of Florida, and we had 3 days of tropical storm winds and the water was high. We never lost power and had no damage to our property, which was wonderful. I pray for those of you up north who will have to go through the wrath of this storm. Just hunker down and hang in there!!! And NO, we don't ever stop worrying about our "children". emoticon
