Seaking Shelter

A quick update on "Sandy".
 
 
This pretty male Cardinal is seeking shelter in my fading hydrangea's.
 
If you go outside, you will get wet
and your hair will be tasseled.
 
So far, so good!!

3:30 p.m. Update, The Weather Outside is Frightful.
but everything inside is delightful.
We still have power and really good eats!!

Aww little birdie! I'd take him in if I could!! Hope all's well. WINDY where I am.

Beatrice P. Boyd said...

Hi Debbie, as NJ natives who have family and friends still there and blog friends now too, we hope everyone is safe. Things can always be replaced, but folks cannot so we are thinking of everyone, including the wildlife. Things are very wet with torrential downpours and wind gusts here on the VA eastern shore, but we are doing OK. Hope you stay safe as well.

What is it about storms that make you want to eat anyway?

Debbie, I hope you stay safe and keep your electric. Looks like Nj was hit hard. Take care and be safe!

Robin in Short Pump said...

Thinking of you and the hubs, Debbie. I have a quilting friend in Wall that we haven't heard from since she posted a picture on Facebook of a downed tree in her front yard (fortunately away from the house). Hope you don't have damage and only minor inconveniences.

marijke said...

Hope you are ok Debbie. I have seen a lot of horrible vieuws on tv. I hope it's not in an area where you live. What I am supprised about is that our electricity is under the soil and yours is above? Hope you are on the blog soon.
