    INformative links. Wondering what effects we will have from this huge storm.

    I sure hope Hurricane Sandy doesn't come far enough inland to get you.
    The photos of downed trees scare the wits out of me. We don't get hurricanes but parts of Alberta have had a few tornados, and all of Alberta gets high winds.
    We have two huge poplars behind our house. Walking home, I've calculated they are twice as tall as the length of the house, three times as tall as the width of the house, and four times as tall as the height of the house. My calculations could be off, but the numbers are still scary.
    In the last wind storm, a branch came down right on the spot where our dog lies when she's outside. I still cringe when I think of it.
    My husband consulted an "expert" who said the trees were safe. That one branch on Lindy's favorite spot proved him wrong.

    Hopefully Sandy will lose a little of her punch before arriving to our shores. - Margy

    Well, I hope this peters out somehow. It doesn't look good right now.
