Whew.

[ETA: For those who want to help out from far away: a friend forwarded the link for Presbyterian Disaster Assistance. I liked their suggestion for prayer a lot: “lift up those who have fallen, sustain those who work to rescue or rebuild, and surround us now with your grace and peace to face the challenges ahead. Grant us the assurance of your presence even in this time of uncertainty, and fill us with the hope of your new creation …” For those who prefer a secular response, here’s the Red Cross link.]

Sandy. I am praying for you vigorously if you are suffering from the storm in any way. I — we — hope you stay dry and safe.

The election. I voted (early). The wait was an hour. I assume there will be record numbers at the polls. If you live in the U.S. and are eligible, please get out and vote.

And I applied for that job, which involved surmounting a huge emotional obstacle. Now I am going to do my best to forget about the whole thing.

I need some Armitage.

  1. It’s very sad. One of my friend has cancelled his trip to New York, it was too dangerous. She was accompanying a friend who was supposed to run the marathon, but I think this one will be cancelled ?

  2. Adding best wishes to the U.S. during, and following the effects of the storm. Much more than “The Perfect Storm”. Nightmare. Keep as safe as you all can, in affected U.S. regions. It’s not as bad (yet) north of the border. But.

    (Good for applying to that position, servetus – nothing to lose. 🙂 )

  4. Thank you!! we’ve been lucky, it passed us by and my county reports loss of power to 85.000 residents somehow we’ve been spared that. The shore got it the worse. I’m glad I’m on higher grounds and far from river or creek. The winds never got as high for as long as I anticipated right here.

  7. We made it through the hurricane/cyclone/post-tropical storm/freakin’ scary weather pattern, safely. My thoughts and prayers are with those who have not.

    We will be at our polling place, guaranteed. I expect to see record numbers there, if the last primary is any indication. Of course, record numbers out here means we might have to wait 10 minutes.

    Good for you, applying for the position! 😀 Good idea to just let it go now.

    And a little Armitage is always a good thing! Even during scary weather patterns. 😉
