Even all the way over here in the midwest we are feeling hurricane Sandy's wrath. The winds have been blowing, seemingly bending trees in half, and kicking up 20 foot waves on Lake Michigan. The wind is smashing against the house and even from inside I can hear the waves roaring from below the cliffs. It is a wicked one out there today.
But here I sit in my warm, safe house with my own children playing LEGOS behind me. Lucky is the word that keeps running through my head. Lucky, and unfair.
Instead of trying to figure out where we will live, or how we will stay warm, I am wondering what faces to carve on the pumpkins, and what costumes will be worn tomorrow to combat the cold and wind.
