instaTuesday: hurricane style

well, it looks like we survived hurricane sandy!  mike and i had the day off yesterday, and the rest of our roommates were back home by 1:00 because the state closed all highways.

we played some outdoor [yes, i know it sounds crazy, but we started this tradition last year during irene] games, card games, and watched as the power went in and out throughout the night.

hope everyone else on the east coast has stayed safe.  i've seen some crazy photos and heard some horrific stories from my shoreline hometown in rhode island and from nyc.

here's a recap of my week [mostly hurricane-ish things] via instagram:
mike and i have been playing a lot of cribbage lately...

saturday we did lots of "fall things" including going to a cider mill for pumpkins, apple fritters, and the petting zoo

hurricane day-off baking and arts and crafts

lots of hurricane day-off things: 
tailgate toss, ice wine, 
yummy breakfast, post office run [including mailing packages to a couple of blogger friends: amanda for her "pumpkin swap" gifts and adria for a VERY belated birthday present for herself and iris], and cards by candle light

sooooo soaked

linking up with jane!

Glad you are ok! I think playing games to pass time during a storm sounds like a good idea! Have you ever played banana grams? That is my new favorite game :) Have a great day!

I've heard of banana grams before but I don't have that one in my collection - might have to ask for that from Santa :)

I love how you guys totally made the best of things! Is it terrible that I wished I was there to witness this storm of all storms?? ;)

Playing outside/being in the storm was really fun - I remember last year we walked all around our neighborhood to see the damage [my roommate brought his chain saw to help get people out of their homes] and heard so many trees cracking. My hometown in RI is a mess right now - and so many of these places JUST finished rebuilding from Hurricane Irene only a year ago. I didn't realize I moved in FL!

Glad to hear you are okay! I have many friends in the northeast and have been worried for the last couple of days. Stay safe!
