Intermittent Internet Due To Mother Nature

Mother Nature has really let loose in NJ this year. First, the East Coast had snow, the likes of which we hadn't seen in 35 years.

And now for the last two days, rain. Rain, rain, go away, come again some other day. Rain so hard I swear I saw a bearded man floating by in an ark. Don't tell me it's a Nor'Easter, it's rain, almost in a biblical way! And my poor mom and dad! All the siding blew off their house, as well as their mailbox blew down!

Power keeps flickering on and off, I don't know how much longer I have the computer, I have my wind up radio, trees come down, lightning strikes, the cat howls from thunder boomers. She is scared. I am scared too, as we snuggle together under an old afghan my grand mother made for me when I was a teenager.

The weatherman says two to three more days of this. In the mean time I will get the apartment ready for Passover, and do some heavy duty journaling, and read with a flashlight. Listen to the radio. Make a lovely chicken soup with the left over chicken carcass I have with carrots. And miss the internet.

Hi Mike!

I actually like rain! I really do! I just want people to know in case I cannot post for the next few days or comment on blogs.

We've had horrible rain here too, but nothing like what it sounds like you have! Here's hoping that you stay dry and your power stays on.

Wishing you well,
NOS

We've been having the same weather here in WV geesh, the river is so high we're in flood stages and the sidewalk near the river is underwater.

It's very strange, snow, wind, rain and intermittent internet/cable LOL!

Keep us posted and know I'll be watching for your next post...great blog!

Sounds cozy, in that snuggly slightly scary way. Enjoy, and don't go to the store for bread and milk. Just by canned soup.

Nos, Gabriella, and Journey, I took a walk, lots of downed trees, and power lines, but so far so good. Just light drizzle. Good day for catnaps.

And good day for chicken soup, the kind YOU are making, carcass, carrots, and whatever else you MARVELOUS Jewish Peeps put into those pots. I really MISS that kind of cooking!

Weather the storms well, girl. Spring is ON THE WAY!
That's what they say.
Though maybe not today.

Engelwood, near Dumont, I know that area a little bit...

PEACE!

Hi Steve, I am in Middlesex, but we had a lot of trees down. I am an OK cook, I hope some day to be in Mary's league.

It has been a wild and crazy winter weatherwise. Hope that you won't lose your power or your trees.
