Preparing for a storm…

So Hurricane Sandy is upon us. I’ve done all I can do to get us prepped for what may come. We have water, flashlights, candles, and food to last a while in case we lose power. From the look of things, this storm is going to be nasty. Thankfully, I am not on the coast and flooding should not be a concern. I do worry about the old, and very large, trees that surround my house. My fingers will be crossed until this whole thing passes.

People have made some comments today about humor and such a monster storm. That, since this storm had already taken lives and will surely take more, as well as cause massive devastation, that we should not find laughs at any of it. I don’t take this approach. Humor and sarcasm is how I always have, and always will, get through the tough times. So I giggled at the image of the Statue of Liberty crouched behind her pedestal, and the various jokes on twitter, and of course every time Michael Bloomberg attempts to speak Spanish. Laughter is, even at times of impending doom, the best medicine.
