Happy Halloween and Bracing for Frankenstorm

Hey everyone! Just wanted to pop in and say I wish you all a Happy Halloween Week!
The Mid-Atlantic region is bracing for a major storm/hurricane with widespread expected power outages. 
The brunt of it should hit Philly Monday night, winds have already picked up this morning. 
Since my area loses electricity often, I don't doubt this time will be any different.

After Earl's Emmy Award winning coverage of Hurricane Irene last year here
I'm sure you're wondering if he'll be covering Hurricane Sandy...
and I'd love to ask him... but he's been cowering under the couch for two days now.

If you're affected by the storm please take care!
Earl and I will check in if we can, if not we'll talk to you when the coast is clear:@)

  3. I hope Sandy doesn't pack quite the punch that they're saying she will! Please take care and keep us posted. In the meantime, I just noticed that candy corn cake on your sidebar and I need to go investigate!

  13. Please stay safe. I am hearing you are going to get slammed. Last year at this time 90 percent of my town was without for 5 days. We were lucky and never lost it. I don't feel so lucky about this monster though. Good luck friend.

  23. Hi Lynn,

    That first picture is so cute, it just makes me squeal!! :D Your Earl posts are my very favorites; but I love your recipe posts, as well. They always make me hungry.

    Thanks for sharing this and please be safe. I hope this storm turns back out to sea, and all of you will not be affected.

    Take care!

    I hope you and Earl will stay warm and safe during the storms. The little pigs should bring you the luck you need for this time.
    Best greetings, Johanna

  26. The weathermen and government officals certainly have me sacred by this hurricane, Lynn! The good thing for me is that my husband will be home to help me bale flood water or hold onto the roof...lol

    Stay safe! let's hope we keep power!

  27. I hope Sandy turns around by a miracle and heads out to sea. And I love those photos of the piggies.

  28. Stay safe and dry! You may want to join Earl if it gets too bad. The rain has already started here in VA. :)

  30. Take care and take cover!! This is a scary storm for a mom who has half of her heart living in the path of it in DC. I hope she listened to my advice!

    ReplyDelete
  31. Hi Lynn, I'm watching the trees bending to the ground right now too! We are all stocked up on water and other supplies and hoping we don't lose too many more trees. Stay safe and find Earl! Linda

  32. Praying for all of you in the path, certainly hope it bypasses way more than they think!

  33. Stay safe Lynn. It is a massive storm. Praying.

  34. I hear it supposed to get worse as the evening approaches. Hope you are safely out of harm's way, Lynn!

  35. Hi Lynn, It sounds like by now Sandy has passed Philly and is headed northwest. Hope you got nothing more than some non-damaging wind and some needed rain. Take care!

  38. You have me wondering what Wilson would look like in a pumpkin. I wondered if Earl would be doing any reporting this year.

    ReplyDelete
  39. Just popped by to let you know I was thinking of you & praying that you've not had any damage & will get power back on, so you can touch base.

  41. Lynn,
    You have such a terrific sense of humor! Great picture of Earl.
    Hope you sailed easily through the storm, and if your power is out, it returns swiftly.
    Let us know how you are faring, when you can!

  42. Good morning Lynn, Love the pigs in the pumpkin. I remember the piglets when we lived on the dairy farm. I was very young and let me tell you, the mama pig would not let us get near the babies. Believe me we tried. They are so cute.

    That storm was awful and Earl better stay under the couch. HA!

    Happy Halloween,
    Jeanne xo

  43. Hulls you and the piggies weathered the horrible storm. We have a couple of friends in Manhattan and their apartment is on the 23 rd floor. The winds were terrible bit the worst was the swaying of the building! Have a fun Halloween!

  44. Lynn, I'm thinking about you, watching the news coverage. I just read it may be a week before power is restored :( I hope that's not the case with you & Earl!
