This storm is hundreds of miles out to sea, but still packing heavy snow and winds. They didn't predict that it would intensify the way it did.

I'm grateful to be indoors working from home with my mug of cocoa and my laptop, but I feel so awful for those losing their homes and property.
I'm on Long Island and that is how it is on our north and south shores. Ever since Hurricane Sandy, it has been one thing after another. People are still trying to rebuild and put their homes back together. Areas were flooded again the past two days with this latest storm. My heart goes out to everyone affected.

It's been a hectic week here; I've been lurking for a few minutes at a time, but really haven't had time to do much else. Thought I'd take a minute to wish everyone a good weekend. Have fun!

Don't forget DAYLIGHT SAVINGS TIME BEGINS this weekend. Put your clocks an hour forward.

Enjoy your day.

You can see the personal belongings from the house falling in the ocean and drifting out to sea. I tried to shovel, but I can't get my car free, even though Mr. shoveled before he left for work. And there's more snow in the roadway than in the part of the driveway I shoveled. I'm hoping Mr. can get home from work safely this evening. The flooding on the coastline is dreadful. It was pretty seeing it out the window earlier today; now it's upsetting.
We pray Mr gets home ok and that all of you stay safe. I wouldn't want the flooding but would love the snow. Here in the mountains, we are blessed that we would just stay home and not go to work. With no snow removal here, we have to stay home.

Good morning, Christmas friends. I have already had coffee and just switched to hot spiced mandarin orange tea. I have a sinus headache and stuffy head. Ick! I just made an appointment for the shoulder MRI on next Tuesday. I will be glad to get this fixed and have the pain go away! Not much is planned for today except to rest and drink lots of fluids!
