It's hard to think about much more than Sandy, a monster of a hurricane. Sandy is, seemingly, everywhere, giving us 20 foot waves on the shores of the big island, and battering the east coast of the US with wind and waves without having actually arrived yet. Even the Great Lakes are being given warnings of 20+ foot waves!

In Sandy's path through Jamaica, Hispanola, Cuba and the Bahamas, death and destruction have been left behind, 51 known deaths in Haiti alone. Sadly, the replica of the HMS Bounty has sunk off of the coast of North Carolina, with the Coast Guard rescuing 14 of the 16 crew members. 

People who should have evacuated are now calling for help, risking the lives of their rescuers, as well as their own. Why ask why?

A little distraction from Sandy: these five geese have started hanging out in my yard and the bay. Very loud and fun to watch if not so much fun to hear. Christmas goose? Hmmm.
To all of our many friends and loved ones in the affected areas, love and wishes for safety to yourselves and your property. Don't forget to check in when you are able to! I know there is something funny I could put here, but I can't think of anything funny at the moment.

Love and hope from Culebra
 Have a make it safely through Monday. Do something mighty.
