Sandy. Hurricane or severe weather?

We spent a fair part of yesterday afternoon retying tarps on the hay, putting away the skirting table and resecuring the tarp on the horse trailer, and picking up & putting away anything that could become a projectile. Now, we pray that the 'plastic' roof on the greenhouse holds and that we don't lose any tree branches on the wires, or our electricity.

I am returning to work tomorrow, so I am looking forward to a fun filled day..

From WMUR Channel 9 news-

Sandy could bring winds of up to 60 mph and dump 2 and 4 inches of rain to parts of the Granite State -- likely starting Monday, Gov. John Lynch's office said.
"While the exact path and severity of the storm remain uncertain, it is clear New Hampshire will experience a significant weather event and I urge everyone to be prepared," Lynch said.

So, from reading all of this, I am glad I am home for the day. Tomorrow could be an adventure returning to work for the first day since Sept. 10th. Despite surgery only 19 days prior to work, I am doing incredibly well. I will return to work 1 day a week and see how I do.
