All is Calm here on the Northern Front

We live practically in Canada. Which means of course we get snow and all that jazz when the weather gets crazy. It also means we're used to weather weirdness. We have always owned a generator and have a nice portable device that can charge cell phones if needed. And of course, there is always the small propane lantern as well for throwing lots of light.

Despite what Frumpy* the Your News Now Weather girl said about today and the "unsettled weather" we have a bit of sunshine this am after the storm. Turns out Sandy was just a tease up here. Kids went to school, we're drying out, and have a double rainbow!

New York City which is significantly downstate from here is not so lucky it appears. And the rough part about the city is they are not prepared for weather like us country folk. Keep them in your thoughts & prayers as their city turns into Venice, Italy.

*Oh and Frumpy? She is normally dead nuts on as far as the weather goes, despite her fashion choices. We'll give her a break today. I'll take a rainbow anytime over "unsettled" weather patterns.


  1. So glad to hear you won't have to get out your canoe any time soon! Yes NYC looks like another story...Great photo!!

  3. So glad that you are all ok!! I have family in Rochester and they were all affected ... which totally shocks me as you know how far it is away from the shore... crazy!!!!

  4. Oh so glad you are ok, the news reports on NY are not good at all, it seems like they really copped a drenching... and I do hope they get together and help each other through all this... and I would not like to be a weather girl for all the tea in china.. the weather can be more than unpredictable at times.. take care...

  5. Happy to see that you have been spared :)
    Never seen a double rainbow before...beautiful picture!
    Take care.

  6. AMEN!!! Gorgeous photo and so glad your power didn't go out for long. Can I be a weather gal too? I can be right half the time.

  7. So glad to hear that you are safe and sound and sharing a beautiful picture as well!
    I can't imagine how all of the people in the city are dealing with this...
