Waiting for Hurricane Sandy

I live in Delaware, pharmacy and have a little condo in Rehoboth Beach, capsule Delaware. I am worried about hurricane Sandy as it heads our way. It is already doing its damage at the beach, which is so sad to see. We went down for a couple of days 2 weeks ago. The beach grasses were so beautiful. Everything looked so lovely. I hate to see what it will look like when this storm is over. It’s looks like all of our beaches on the East coast will suffer significant damage.

Our house is surrounded by very tall trees. We will be sleeping downstairs tonight. You can not see it in this photo we have lots of tall trees. There is a very large pine tree in front of our house, you can’t see it in the photo. Pine trees have shallow roots, so we are concerned that the wind could bring it down. If it falls, it will fall onto our house. We have several old hemlocks in the back that we are concerned about too, not to mention a huge tree in the back of the property that is extremely vulnerable.We will probably be without power by tomorrow morning, and I pray if we are that it won’t be for too long. It’s really scary, not knowing what to expect. I have never experienced a hurricane. I can not imagine what winds 95 mph must be like. It has been raining for the last couple of days, and now the wind is picking up. The ground is already saturated and we are expecting 10 inches of rain starting late this evening. I am thankful that I live in an all brick house, but this is all a bit unsettling.

Praying for everyone in the path of this storm.

    …Like Joy above, I too thought of you when I heard about Rehoboth Beach this morning dear Carole. Your home is just so lovely, just like its inhabitants. I pray you and your home, and trees too, will all brave this storm with nary a bump.

    …Keeping you in my thoughts and prayers. Be safe.
