No too much to report post-Sandy here in Vermont. In our area there were sporadic power outages due to fallen trees (not my house), but we mostly had some wind and rain. Since we are still trying to rebuild the main bridge heading east of town from Irene last year, we were blessed to be spared from another pounding this year. My daughter was ok in Philly, but I have family in CT and NJ that are still without power and will likely remain that way for days. Sending prayers out to all affected by the storm.
The Rec Center closed early Monday so I missed out on my swim, and everything in town (except your friend Price Chopper Pharmacy) was closed yesterday. I hopped in before lunch today and felt a bit creaky in the water. I thought of the SSS as I was swimming, and ran out of time before the 400 IM's (which is actually ok by me ).
Plans for the rest of the day include helping to set up the "Journey Through the Bible" at my son's school and then help out during and after it. It is an alternative to trick-or-treating where kids can come (with or without costume) and see different skits from the Bible acted out by the students, then load up on candy after each "stop." Preston will probably be a guide again this year. When we get home we'll watch some Halloween classics: Charlie Brown, Garfield, Alvin and the Chipmunks, and this weekend we usually pop in the Nightmare Before Christmas. Stay safe tonight, everyone.
Also, I am at post #299 in the forums, which should mean that I will get a treat shortly after my next post.
