We drove back from New York on Sunday, barely escaping the mouth of Tropical Storm Sandy. Well, more or less. Then we battened down the hatches and I spent the rest of the day cooking just in case we lost power. I made chicken enchiladas and that casserole they print the recipe for on the back of the stove top stuffing box. Then, because, really, I had to, I made pumpkin chocolate chip muffins.
Then, we waited. James went to work on Monday, found no one there, and came home again. Edie took two naps and I made one of two curtains for her room. The wind started first, then the rain. The lights flickered, but the internet stayed on (thank goodness).
Today dawned cloudless, and we took a walk. We found a few downed trees in the Fells, but mostly sodden leaves and bare trees. Such is our luck. We're glad to read that Park Slope fared well, but, like everyone, worried about those less lucky. Nature, nature.
