Sandy update and a litte sunshine..

A quick shout out to the two readers from Italy yesterday! Wahoo to you. Also thanks for reading.

The big bad winter forecast for the northeast has so far missed stopping by in New Jersey.  Go figure. I was seriously thinking about buying a snow blower based on the forecast. I will grant you that we are only halfway through the month of January, but it was in the mid 50’s today. I walked my mile plus tonight and had worked up a sweat by the end.  I was walking fast and I had a light jacket on, but still.  I like the warmer weather, it helps with the heating bills.

Wednesday night my DW just got back from getting her hair done for vacation. She looks marvelous! I need to find my hair cut person for Friday.  Sunday we fly to Florida for some sun and some lacrosse. I will hopefully be meeting up with one of the people I met on Twitter.  She and her husband life just outside of Key West. She posts a picture of the sunrise in Key West every morning. I am almost never awake for the sunrise. If you are on Twitter and want to see a Key West sunrise every morning, search for @barbiedoll0087 on Twitter.

I went down to the Windmill with my coupon today for lunch. The Windmill has great hot dogs and coupon specials by the month via email and in the Wednesday newspaper. My favorite coupon is the buy one, get one free coupon. Today’s coupon was a hot dog and a soda for 5 dollars. I also got a bowl of split pea soup. The soup was good, just not as good as the soup my MIL makes. I took my food to go and drove down to the beach in Belmar.  Belmar was pretty hard hit by Sandy. The entire boardwalk was destroyed. The governor was supposed to be in Belmar today for the ground breaking on the new boardwalk. I missed him. His schedule and mine just did not work out. His loss.

Pictures will have captions.  Hopefully the captions make sense.  The two-week post Sandy pictures can be found here via Drop Box. The current, 9 week  post-Sandy pictures can be found here via Drop Box. Here are the pre-Sandy pictures, also via Drop Box. It’s crazy that I was down on the boardwalk shooting pictures a week before the hurricane.

Enjoy!

Namaste
