27th October

The wind is very blustery outside - coming in great gusts that are rattling the windows.

We often get high winds when a hurricane is raging across the pond in the Caribbean - a bit like radio-active fallout, except in this case its a huff-puff blowout! :-)

My friend Judy in Virginia is taking to a hotel for the weekend because of the high level storm warning (though I believe from the radio reports here in the UK this morning, its been downgraded to tropical storm.
Judy is worried because she has lots of trees near her property, and understandably, since she lives alone, she doesn't want to be on her own at home.

Hope everyone in the path of the storm stays safe!

Storm Damage 2011


22nd October ~ Monday

It is Monday and I do not have enough tea or coffee to get myself moving just yet. *laughs* However, over the weekend I did take a few photos while driving along the Blue Ridge Parkway in North Carolina (since we live so close to that famous roadway).

An interesting tree - leaves already off in higher elevations

One of several tunnels we drove through

The view through the windshield
We are enjoying cool Fall weather and crystal blue skies again today. I'll take it!
