TW was nervous Sunday night when the wind started kicking up which made ME nervous. Thank you very much, Woman! I kept jumping on the window sill every five minutes to see what was going on. Monday afternoon and evening was something we'd never experienced before. There's been many Nor'esters, blizzards and even Hurricane Irene since we've been living here but this was the worst by far. Once the wind gusts, reaching over 80 mph started hitting our Northern exposure windows I won't lie to you, it was scary. For the peeps, I mean. It got so bad, our concrete building began rocking and rolling. We could feel it swaying. Things were falling off shelves and pictures hanging on the walls were turned crooked. I wanted to play in and shred my tissue paper all night. It was nice of Pop's friends to use tissue paper to wrap his gifts, I might add. Get the peacock feather, Woman! I was running through the condo doing my best Thundering Herd of Elephants impression.

Pop had his police scanner on all night listening to what was happening locally. In my little town, they had boats rescuing people from their homes, trees falling and debris falling from buildings. The building next door to ours lost much of its siding near the roof. Again, we were lucky cos the screens didn't even blow out of our windows.
The one thing that completely shocked the peeps was a fire in Queens that burned 80 houses to the ground. The video is amazing.
Many thanks for all your concern. I feel blessed to know such caring peeps and anipals. Tomorrow, I'll start visiting you again and leaving
