It's not the pace of life than concerns me... it's the sudden stop at the end.

Hi everyone

Dino and I are just fine. We were barely kissed by Sandy.
Of course, our local weather forecasters were geared up for disaster. They seemed disappointed when nothing materialized ....

Micki and John are being evacuated again due to the NorEaster coming in. Poor guys just can't catch a break.

And Marilee posted on my wall after I reposted Micki's thing that she was glad to see they were okay. So Marilee is okay. Kathy, however, I don't know about.

Times like these remind me how uncertain life is and how much more important your friends are.
Glad to hear that you had no impact from the shooting, Lauren! I know what you mean about the uncertainty of life. Hug your friends and family, people!

So happy that you and Dino are doing well. Poor Micki and John! To be evacuated again...and so soon!

I'm very glad to hear that all is well. I hope that Kathy and Frank are also okay. Let's hope that NorEaster goes far away.

So glad to hear that Lauren and Jeri are safe in Savannah.

Group hug to everyone.

Thanks for the good thoughts, but Cathy and Frank are fine.

Lost power for good while, minor water and very minor damage to the house, but no real problems.

Best wishes to Micki and John, hope things settle down for you soon. Please let us know if you need anything.

Me too! It breaks my heart to have it happen now, but I can't tell you how many times I have counted my lucky stars that we had such perfect weather -- and were able to do all the things we did.

Hope all are still doing well in the northeast.

Wow! The picture of the guy "swimming" in St. Mark's square is crazy.

It's really amazing to see this - I'm making sure I have boots when we go again

Luckily, the water receeds almost as fast as it comes in. The locals tend to take it all in stride.

Here's a link to another article with a lot of pictures

That is crazy. Thanks for the additional link. Love all the info but so hate to see the high water. I hope Venice stays safe.

Thanks Marilee. Now that I've had time to actually read all of the link you sent, I feel much better. Nice to know the water receded so quickly. I'd like to read more of the author's posts. I found it very interesting.

Wow. WOW! Not just regular boots, but hip waders to go on the packing list for a winter trip to Venice.

Thanks for the link, Marilee. I'll enjoy reading the rest of the blog.

If you're interested

I found the author's other blogs about Venezia at:
www.iamnotmakingthisup.net

I've only had the chance to read a few of her postings, but they are spectacular reads
