pumpkin carving: a favorite superstorm pastime.


We took a break from eyeball-gluing to CNN, so that we could carve our pumpkins!  Woot woot!  We all did a fabulous job, if I do say so myself.  And now those little pumpkin creations are outside, lined up along the porch, braving the wind and rain, awaiting the little trick-or-treaters {who will now come on Saturday evening because our smart city of Pittsburgh postponed Halloween until then when the weather is clear}.  For the rest of the evening we ate sugary foods, sat fireside and re-glued our eyes to CNN's continuous storm updates.  Outside it continues to rain steadily in Pittsburgh, while the wind blows and blows.  Coincidentally, the kids have been out of school today and tomorrow as part of a scheduled teacher-in-service day, so that has been quite convenient.  We are all safely at home, waiting for Sandy's worst, which hopefully won't be too bad.  Honestly, nothing could be worse than what is happening nearer to the coast right now, so no complaining here.















My thoughts are with the coastal, Manhattan and Jersey Shore peeps tonight!
Be safe, friends!
