Oklahoma

Oklahoma. Enough said. Or, not much else to say, I should say. Watching the news yesterday as the tornado wreaked havoc and leveled a town to debris, I couldn’t even process in my head what was going on there. I thought back to end of October, when Sandy — a minimal storm [not even categorized …

A Storm to Remember

The last few days have been an absolutely whirlwind with Hurricane Sandy hitting us. In all the years we have lived here, we have never experienced anything like it or its aftermath. If you were lucky enough to not be in its path and/or have never experienced a Hurricane, I can’t begin to explain to …

Flood

Driving up north today, I definitely got a reality check. Watching the news coverage on the flood and intense rain in the last week or so just doesn’t give it justice. Here is one photo I quickly snapped from my phone earlier today: Yes, that’s flooding up to the branches pretty much. We saw parks …

Thanks Hurricane Irene

Thanks to Hurricane Irene, our family spent Saturday night de-flooding (un-flooding?) taking all of the water out of our basement. What else could we have wanted to do on a Saturday night, right? In all honesty, my brother and dad did most of it because I couldn’t do much. But in all seriousness, we were …

Prepping for Hurricane Irene

Non perishable food and bottled water has been bought. Flashlights are at arm’s distance. Bags have been packed in case we need to evacuate. Cookies have been baked 🙂 Oh and rain and wind has picked up. Are we ready? As ready as we’ll ever be. I’ll take the crazy wind, rain, and possible flooding… …

Did You Feel It?

“Did you feel it?” It’s probably the number one question being asked along all of the east coast on the United States. Living in New Jersey (or any part of the east cost), you don’ really expect earthquakes. Barring crazy thunderstorms (and your house being struck by lightning) and snow storms, we are fortunate enough …

Snow

Exactly a month after the blizzard last month, we got another huge snow storm yesterday into today. I’m not sure what the exact amounts are yet, but definitely in the 15+ inches range for sure. Here are some pictures. The first two are from yesterday and the rest are from today: that’s our pool that …

Snow Storm

I don’t think it’s a surprise to anyone that knows me that I absolutely LOVE snow! So you can probably imagine my excitement when suddenly yesterday we were put in a blizzard warning expecting up to 20 inches of snow from this morning through tomorrow. Mind you, this is after having nothing other than flurries …

A Trip to Mississauga with Faraz

Earlier this month, the Sunday after our Washington D.C. trip, Faraz and I drove up to Mississauga in Canada for about five days (which was originally supposed to be a 2 day trip) because he had a job interview. On our drive up to Mississauga, we passed through an area (Binghamton) that just had a …

Snowy February

We’re in the midst of another snow storm!!!!! Can you sense my excitement? It’s absolutely gorgeous outside and looks so pretty! I’m enjoying every minute of this. We’ve had more snow in the February than the rest of the winter combined so far. This is the first time in many years we are actually having a snow-y winter, so …
