WASHINGTON--Getting ready for Hurricane Sandy this afternoon. Broke the glass top of patio table moving it so it would not get blown. Moved planters. Flashlights by the door. Water bottles full. Wind up emergency flashlight and radio (see photo above) handy. Electronic gizmos charged. Taking in rocking chairs off the front porch. Cleared out front gutters.

Will sleep downstairs tonight, in case tree next door falls on the house. Happens all the time here.
