Good morning. Beautiful sunny morning here. I've just been reading up about Hurricane Sandy which is due to hit the east coast of the USA, it could be the largest storm ever to hit New York. Hundreds of flights have been cancelled, people are boarding up their properties, millions will be evacuated. My heart goes out to all those affected, I pray that they will be safe.
I have received an email from Elaine, she sent me the book of cat cartoons. I copy and paste it here.
Hello again, Ilona. Happy to read that the book got there finally. Seems as thought it must have been brought by a very tired carrier pigeon. Have fun giggling at the cartoons.
Upper Darby is just outside of Philadelphia. "Philly" is midway between New York and Washington and 90 miles from the seaside (Atlantic City) but no Salty Sam there.
We're all hunkering down, waiting for what the weather men are saying will be the biggest storm/hurricane/flood in recorded history. "Sandy" they're calling her. A couple of MILLION may end up being told or asked to evacuate! I'm terrified my home/house will get flooded again; it will be the fourth or fifth time, five or six feet or more of cloggy, slimy, stinky runny goo in the basement/cellar. Big losses, lots of damage. Keep your fingers crossed for me.
Ta ta for now.
Please, everybody keep their fingers crossed for Elaine and everyone who may be affected. We moan about our miserable weather, yes it's unpleasant, yes it's miserable, but hell, we are so lucky not to be in the path of that frightening hurricane.
Thinking of you Elaine, keep in touch. Love from me and all our bloggy friends.
