Good Riddance Sandy!



A poem of happiness.

Apologies to Alexander Niemann

Rain Stopped

The sodden fat blobs from the sky, cease to fall
onto our house . You can smell the wet broken acorns on the deck

and the ceasing of the wind in the willows next door.
The hurricane is done, gone on its way.  Bothering others in its path to spread the world's warmth afresh.   The air's stirred drink has renewed the clime while leaving powerless humans in its wake.


We rejoice in our continued electricity.  It did not fail, nor dimmed in threat.  Our meals were cooked, and warm they were.

If only those of us far north were quite as sure.

We B fine, too. All is well here. A lot of wind and rain yesterday thru the night, maybe 45 mph but sounded like a freight train. I had no flooding or trees down around me and didn't lose power. I haven't been out and about so I am not sure how the rest of the area fared, especially in regards to trees and traffic lights.

We left work early yesterday and are closed today, but they never lost power either. Once again, I am have been lucky and survived another storm...

We are right there with you, Mark. Serious over-dramatization on the part of the media.
Nice poem!
Love, TK, Squashies, Pip and dee

Amen to that! We lost power for 18 hours, not bad after this summer & Isabel. For a neighborhood with underground lines, you'd think we'd never lose power! We're purring for the peeps up north of us though.

Andrea and the Celestial Kitties said...

Glad you got through it!

Team Tabby said...

Good to hear all is well in your corner!

Spitty-the-Kitty said...

Let the Church say Amen!! We hope it has well and truly passed you by, because I think I am supposed to make a visit for Halloween....right? And I do hate wet furz. See you soon, Lambis Pie (and NO, Marley, I don't mean YOU--or even Ayla, beauteous as she is).

Happy news! Warm, safe and dry is a good way to be!
