It’s Been a Wild Ride, Sandy

The Quiet Before the Storm

The Quiet Before the Storm

As a wee lass growing up in New England, I always counted myself lucky in the weather department.  New England skies are known to change quickly, but the circumstances were rarely extreme.

Earthquakes? Nope.
Tornados? Never.
Hurricanes? Unheard of….

While I still feel fortunate to have avoided the major devastation of Tornado Alley, Katrina and the fault lines in California, it would seem that us New Englanders will have to start developing a thicker skin.  In the last three years, we have had tornados rip through the states leaving hallways of destruction that still haven’t been repaired, earth shakes, record snowfall with a side of power outages and most recently, coastal towns in ruin due to Sandy.

Although I don’t live on the coast, I actually had reason to visit the shore a few times over the last few weeks (weddings and lighthouses are a magical photo-combination!) and wanted to share a few snaps of the Atlantic’s calmer side.

For those of you who are able to do so, the Red Cross is looking for donations to help the people affected by Sandy.  Also, as a bonus, I found a great list of donation safety tips online here.Stay safe, stay positive.

XOXO

The last few days here on the East Coast have been rough…hurricane Sandy put a dent in most people’s Halloween plans.  For those of you affected, I’m sending good thoughts your way.  (I’ll talk a bit more about that tomorrow.)

For the rest of you, Happy Halloween!  Be safe, try to enjoy yourself and remember to call your dentists later to help sort out the cavities from all the candy tonight! 🙂
