Brief Update: Sandy

After “sheltering in place” all day, getting work done, reading a lot and generally watching lots and lots of TV, things are starting to go downhill, weatherwise. jones falls

One of my neighbours took this photo of the Jones Falls, which is not too far from my house. It was taken about 1:00 p.m., so as the brunt of the storm arrives, I can’t help but wonder how much higher the Falls is going to get.

If I have power, I will check in later!

  1. We still have power but I wonder how much longer we'll have a fig tree.

    Things are starting to get scary.

    Please stay in touch. How is the poor baby dog doing?

    Ellicott City here. Wind is definitely picking up, no news on the Little Tiber or the Patapsco downtown. Keeping our fingers crossed for our friendly shopkeepers on Main Street. Here's to working sump pumps! Keep safe.

    Regards,

  3. Thinking about you, Meg. It is wild here on Cape Cod, too. Power going on and off. A lot of coastal damage. Hope Jones Falls do not rise much higher. Very scary.

    1. They thought about a million people in Maryland would lose power, but only about a quarter of that number did!

    1. We were on the right side of the storm, NY was on the wrong side. Glad you're well. All's fine here.

  6. The Fugate, FEMA director reminded the reporters the GOV of states have responsibility to do what needs to be done on a state level if requests for Federal assistance are advanced thats when the FEDS step in to assist -- why have people short memories of Katrina ---a lesson in what a mayor and a Governor need to do anticipate, prepare, direct, order evacuations Big lesson BUY FLOOD INSURANCE you got to do what you got to do--- it is what it is--
