“Sandy” is Right! October 28, 2012

We went to the beach yesterday to watch the waves.  It was sunny and warm (in the 70′s) but the wind was fierce and blowing sand stung our bare legs.

The Gulf, normally placid, looked positively angry as it churned away.

We didn’t stay long.

The beach, less populated than usual, contained pockets of people parked in the sand, despite the relentless sand Sandy was flinging at them.

Not many braved the churning surf with RED FLAGS whipping above the lifeguard stand.

We beat a hasty retreat.

Wish Hurricane Sandy would do the same.   Then we could all breathe a huge sigh of relief.

Aah . . . that’s better!

If you are in Sandy’s path . . . stay safe.
