Gale force winds and lots of rain. Good day to stay inside.

Too bad I have to go feed the critters their lunch. They have enough sense not to go out in it.  ::)

Cold and windy.

But at least I'm not in the direct path of that nasty storm running up the east coast. My thoughts and prayers are with anone who is.

The eye of hurricane Sandy is about 300 miles south of us and coming north. The wind gusts are so fierce the windows rattle. Anything not secured is in the next county.

Oh, and did I mention the driving rain?

All schools statewide were cancelled today and Boston shut it's public transport system at 2pm. Pity anyone who has to be out in this for any length of time.

But we are all safe and sound, and except for when I have to go feed the critters, I'm staying put.

Well... the neighbour across the road will need to repair an entire side of their backyard fence, seeing as it's lying on the grass  :o We've been inside all day with all the strong winds out there, so that's the only damage that we can see. We're not in the direct path either - thinking of my east coast friends too  :-[

Sunny  and chilly.  A fairly gentle wind, but it's what Gran called a lazy wind.  Goes straight through you instead of the long way around.

The US news seem to have a need to name the storms like that - Frankenstorm, 'Storm of the Century' etc. Not much rain here either.

Once the sun fully rises, should be nice and warm out there and cloud free.

Great day to go buy a car.  ;D ;D

Around 7-30 am it was what I call a 'Cornish Morning'.

The horizon was streaked with ragged strips of blue-black clouds divided by silver. Almost the colours of a St Piran's flag. A raw damp edge to the breeze.  A day full of infinite possibilities and restlessness.

Darkish with fog swirling about.

Oh, you meant the real weather, not the part that sits inside my head!

Out side the sun is shinning, temp not too high and not too low - not enough breeze to stir the leaves around.

Should be a good day for writing after I have consumed enough coffee.  ::)
