Hurricane Sandy – Your Mom Called, GO HOME!

My post title was one of the signs I saw yesterday that someone had erected.  It’s about 7:00 a.m. here on Prospect Bay just off the Chesapeake Bay, we live  seven miles east of the Chesapeake Bay Bridge on the waterfront.  Winds are now at 20-22 mph with heavy rains, gusts are at 32 mph.  We were preparing to run over to our office/warehouse in Middletown, Delaware, for the morning but the Govenor of Delaware has posted a No-Drive Ban for Delaware effective this morning at 5:00 am.  So we are going to hunker down here at our third floor condo in Grasonville, Maryland, and hope for the best.

It’s still dark but once the day’s light is here, I will be taking photos; and if I have power, I will try and post.  Yesterday it was still eerily quiet, calm or light wind, with showers off and on.  The mallards were up against the riprap as usual, looking for someone to feed them.  Two cormorants were fishing along our osprey nest, here’s one of them.

I saw another transient osprey making his way south perched along the road on Saturday.

And a couple of egrets wading along the water.

Snowy or Great Egrets (not sure which!)

We are forecasted to have sustained winds 38-40 mph by noon.  And flooding is expected.  I’ll be back to post if I can!  Any of you that are also in the path of this massive superstorm, take all precautions and be safe please!!

  1. Please stay in a safe place, tape your windows across in case of breaking by flying debris. May G-d keep you and your family safe. 🙂

  2. I’ll be thinking of you! Looks like the upper Chesapeake area (my locale) will be hit too. I’m hunkering down at home; no view of anything but a suburban development so I won’t be taking many photos.
