    It's too late to go anywhere. We are under mandatory evacuation ... and that means 95% of the population stays where it is with a chunk of them heading to the bars for hurricane parties. Our windows are boarded up as usual in these situations but with a new innovation -- we have sliding peep holes so we can see outside and know what's crashing around us instead of guessing in the dark. Oil lamps are filled and ready. Lots of comfort food on hand. Flashlights and crank radios are ready. So ... we wait and we pray. I have a book light and some hand sewing and that's about it. Prayers are very much welcome! See you on the other side!

    you know, i always sound like the villain, or the voice of doom, but which part of 'MANDATORY' do you long beachers not understand??? god sends you a lot of chances to help yourself, but part of it is up to you! i am terrifically worried and fearful for your predicament. man, i'd be heading in a car going west! please, reconsider! you're too young to die! prayers being fervently and frequently said!!

    Hang tight Krystyna. All our prayers are with you. It's very similar to New Orleans. Only, some 250,000 people in New Youk need to move very very quickly. Like when the initial threat became a possibility. That time has come and gone. So everybody who believes in the power of prayer, everyone in the path of Hurricane Sandy needs it now. Stay Safe and Good Luck!!

    Krystyna, keep the faith. I understand your feelings. Hopefully this will be over soon....well at least the weather portion but power outages is another story. Well you can also hand piece a quilt by oil lamps and imagine as it
    you were living in history!

    CQR, you are a darling. We do have lots of places to go if things were normal, but they are not good options for safety and safe travel. Both of my sisters, my nieces and nephews are all in the path of the storm. We stayed with one sister last time who lives further out on Long Island ... and she had more of a mess than we did. My other sister lives in Ipswich, MA right on the river, my aunt (with 18 cats) is in Manhattan, niece in New Jersey, nephews in the boroughs of Queens ... all in bad spots ... and in order to get off our island, which is south of Long Island, all the roads out over the in-between islands are flooded before we are. Then there is the matter of trees crashing down on the parkways as we go through New York City to get wherever we are going -- if the bridges and tunnels aren't already closed. We have flood insurance and it will be what it will be. We took a ride around part of the island and I would guess that most everyone stayed put. But ... when things dry out and get warmer, my dream would be to hop in an RV and visit everyone! And now ... I think I'll curl up under a wee doll quilt and dream of nicer days ahead.
    Love and hugs to all ... everyone be safe and Godspeed!

    All good so far. East and Western ends of the sandbar are flooded, but that always happens. The test will come tonight at high tide.

    I am concerned for all you easterners, God be with you.

    I do have a question on this month's theme. We are to do a quilt on what we are thankful for, does that mean a cup of good joe is ok? Every morning I am so grateful for my cup of joe.

    Krystyna, my prayers are with you and all your family! I have family in NC and New Hampshire, Mass, Conn and Maine... But so far all are safe, not all evacuations are a good idea and I think you know what is best for you and your family~ I think I am thankful the only thing we have to worry about here is an Earthquake!

    I will start my DQ next week, heading to my Sons house on Wednesday and my Marathon on Sunday, I think that makes this week full!

    Prayers to all in Sandy's path~
    Give a smile away today, someone you meet might need one!

    Oh, my goodness. I am so glad you posted. I have been thinking about Krystyna and praying she is OK. What we see on TV looks awful!! I was actually just on line looking at the area she lives in. They must have taken a direct hit!! If you hear anything further, please keep us posted!!!

    Krystyna, My heart goes out to you and your family and I pray for your continued safety. You are in our thoughts and prayers hear on the QB. As are all our QB friends that have been affected by the storm.

    Dragonfly Nana, Have you made it through the storm ok.

    I have heard from both of my kids, North Carolina (safe) and Rhode Island (work) But have been trying to get south to there house in FL and keep getting re-routed to New York. So, this storm has affected so many.

    I am glad to hear that the family is ok Krystyna, that is and always shall be what matters most. Buildings can be rebuilt. Homes abound all over but people that we love .. irreplaceable.

    Still thinking depends on how far I get with my little girls thankful wallie today have to mail it Thursday overnite to her in Oregon. A deal is a deal right? one thing at a time. I have her December one done so plenty of time to make one of those yippee at least there is hope in the near future of playing the fun dq game. Still got time right? is it midnite Wed night or do we turn into pumpkins sooner? its cut and started sewing it. So.. think I can think I can.. thankful for Coffee? you betcha. Thankful for so many things I am silent in retrospect. I am alive today because someone else was willing to to live on in someone they never even knew. That makes me happy inside and it also makes me so deeply saddened for the family who is celebrating Thanksgiving this year without her. Again, no possible design could translate into those feelings. Just know I have them and will probably do something off kilter this time if I do sign up.

    Here today... why what a lucky bunch we are.

    So thankful to hear that Krystyna and family is ok. The pictures are something aweful that you see on the news and online. Hope everyone who was in the path of this storm is safe and well. We got winds and it turned cold, but that is nothing compared to what others have went through.

    I have a good idea ready for my DQ for this month.
