The winds are picking up, and we're getting ready for Hurricane Sandy, or "Frankenstorm" as it's being called. Right now the forecast is the main force of the storm will miss Northern Virginia, where we live, but we will get high winds lasting for a couple of days.
We've bought gas for the generator in case we lose power, and stocked up on dog and cat food and other supplies. So as long as the trees cooperate, we're all set. We can't afford to send our tree guy back on another vacation!
My main concern right now is I have one sick dog who is also storm-phobic, as is one of our other dogs. The sick one doesn't need any stress (he has IBS) and I don't want the other one to have a nervous breakdown!
My thoughts are with those of you who are dealing with the hurricane's aftermath as it passed by, and those on the east coast who will be hit hard in the days to come.
