hot mess.

Atlantic Assault.

November Nor'easter.

Call it what you will -- it's soggy, rainy, windy & plain icky outside.

I'm telling you, the weather this time yesterday morning was NOTHING compared to this. Today is supposed to be the worst of all the Ida leftovers slash nor'easter action. Let's hope so.

I'm surprised my pine trees still have needles on them - the wind is howling out there!

The floor in my laundry room is wet. {it used to be part of the garage...}

The kids are out of school today {thank you, VBCPS, for the 5am wake-up call}. And, in true "bored kids on a rainy day" fashion they are already plucking my nerves. I need more coffee.

The fine folks on the Weather Channel are comparing this storm to Hurricane Isabel from six years ago. That's a pretty good comparison if you want my honest opinion. And, poor Mike Bettes...he's a trooper braving what a news anchor from one of our local stations called the "exfoliation station." In other words, he's been reporting live from the Virginia Beach oceanfront -- wind, surf, rain...blowing sand! Wanna see? Click here.

Roads are flooded. Offices, schools, courts, colleges...closed. My front door...closed, too.

All we can do is wait. Wait for the wind & rain to stop. And, hopefully the sun will come back out and dry things up because I am NOT looking forward to cleaning this:


or this:


The pics were taken around 7:45am with my Crackberry while I walked around my yard like a fool in my pajama pants. I know, I know...

Whoa! We got some similar stuff from Tropical Storm Ida, but it seems way windier and wetter there. Hang in there!

I so know what you mean. I was in Louisiana for my fair share including Katrina. UGH.

Good luck and keep safe.

Hoping tomorrow is better for you, hon.
