I'm getting ready for Frankenstorm. I was up on the roof this morning clearing out the gutters. There are still so many leaves in the trees it was probably a futile exercise but needed to be done. We are all storm shy around here after the flooding and power outages of Irene last year (immediately following a rare earthquake), and the long power failures and tree damage from the derecho last June. I love living in the oak forest....except when a windstorm arrives.
Good luck to all of us on the East Coast in the next few days. I have a generator so I can at least still be online in a power failure, but we may have to wait to see some of us online.
No one ever got up in the morning wishing she'd eaten more the night before.
Original Goal: 114. Current old lady goal: 106.
