Wednesday's Wanderings #46 - Sandy

Last week we were in Key West with a scheduled flight home on Tuesday. 
But Tuesday Hurricane Sandy visited the Mid-Atlantic states, our home.

We made a pre-emptive strike and changed our flight on Sunday. 
This was a good thing because they closed the Philadelphia airport.

We were forced to stay an extra 2 days in Florida.  Don't cry for me!
This was part of the yin and the yang. 
 I was in a beautiful sunny place, but my family and home
and Bailey were going to be in the middle of the hurricane. 

There was a happy ending for us. 
We lost power for 2 days, but no damage to my home. 
The house was warm and the power was on wen we arrived home.
We were lucky. Some were not so lucky.

I grew up on Long Island. 
 In high school, my friends and I spent the summers at the beach.
My heart aches.

I just signed up to make blocks for Hurricane Sandy quilts through Quilting Gallery.

  1. Love seeing your pieces commemorating events in your week.
    We made out well, just a tree on a fence but our power stayed on.
    My parents were from long island, so I spend my summers there when I was young, would love to go back to visit, but have heard it has changed a lot. My relatives live in the Ammagansett and Springs areas.


  2. I think your block really says it all!
    It is so sad how bad they were hit.


Thanks for stopping by. I'd love to hear from you.
