Preparing for Hermine...

We prepared for Hermine the same way we always prepare for a storm.

We check out the ocean. 
All the beaches were closed, even though it was a beautiful, sunny day.
The rip tides/currents were reported to be dangerous!

We went to the Scone Pony and stocked up on the necessary, sweets and treats!

We rode the bikes around Spring Lake, we took pictures here, under this tree,
which is exactly what we did the day before 
Super Storm Sandy.
The storm was downgraded and the threat to New Jersey lessened,
so it was easy to just relax and have fun.
And have fun we did!!

And fyi, Hermine never showed up, no wind, no rain, not even one drop!

  3. The beach scene is beautiful. The blue sky, the clouds, the surf and everything else makes for a great combination.

  9. I like how your prepare! I am so glad she never showed up.
    It looks like you had a lovely time. I think the weathermen do overreact sometimes.

  11. I'm glad you weren't affected by Hermine! If that is an example of the food you keep in the house for a storm, then I want to shelter with you! :-)

  14. Not the kind of preparations I was expecting, but your way was more fun! I'm sure you all are veterans at that sort of thing, anyway.

  17. I think sweets and treats are very important when preparing for an emergency. We have 72 hour kits prepared just incase and of course, I have to have my chocolate. I am so happy that there wasn't a storm and that you had a fun day. I really love the last photo of the two of you! Blessing and hugs~

  18. The sweets and treats look excellent. I wish I could eat stuff like that more often, but it doesn't usually agree with me. I'm glad the storm missed you.

  19. Be safe. I luckily don't live near the ocean per se. Hurricanes have to be extreme for it to make a difference 3 hours away from the beach
