Maybe We Should Have Waited

We hear Sandy is going to pay us a visit.  The Great Lakes will be affected by this hurricane.  We will be getting up to 50 mph winds tomorrow and Wednesday.

If only we would have waited, we wouldn't have had to bag our leaves!  Maybe they would have all blown over to Wisconsin!  Spent the weekend raking and bagging, raking and bagging.  We took 45 bags to the leaf site.

They just keep on pushing this pile higher with a bulldozer.

Cars and trucks abound!

Simon had to come along....he was keeping us company in the yard as we raked!
Hope everyone is tucked in and out of harms way as Sandy makes her way through!  Be safe!


  1. Heard that, Barb. We got all the mosquitoes from Mississippi last time. Watching the weather service ~ yikes ~ I have never seen one this large. Ahhh, look how big Simon is getting. Handsome boy. Keep posting, my friend. I’m not commenting a lot. Love your photo-journals. Stay well.

  2. Hi Barb, I am on storm watch since Sweet p. is in it's path. Wow, you guys really had a ton of leaves. who is he yours? What a cutie! Take care. Love, Penny

  3. I am hoping any of the leaves left in our yard with blow from the East to the neighbors in the West. Ya think?
