I am usually a "people picture" type of gal, but when you plunk a Mid-western girl in the middle of a major weather event on the ocean, things shift gears =) These are just some pictures of the Atlantic doing its thing during our portion of Hurricane Sandy. On Monday the water found a way to get to us, without even coming up over the dunes and down the access road we used from the beach. And once it started coming, it came hard and ran fast!! You can see that the tire tracks stayed put during it all. Our house is about 3 rows back from the beach, so our yard/driveway never flooded, but the road right along the house did. That became a barrier to us being able to get out. Luckily we were able to tack a day on and the water went down enough for us to drive through it to get ourselves on the beach. Mother Nature is not someone to mess around with---especially water, it is a powerful force and I can understand how things (including people) get swept away in fast moving currents.
Welcome to my blog! In our home there is my wonderful husband, we were married on New Years Eve a "few" years ago and it's been pure bliss since then! Arielle is the oldest--she's set to graduate from College this Spring!! Parker is the oldest of the boys--golf is his interest, so much so that he's playing for his College team. Next is Paxton, our sweet 9 year old who LOVES his trains & legos! Finally there is Beckett, the 7 year old goofball!
That leaves me, Colleen, author of this blog. I work full time in dentistry as a CDA/COA and just hit the 20 year mark at my job. I also attend nursing school at nights and on weekends--halfway there!! I enjoy decorating our home, hunting down a bargain, reading, stamping, crocheting and following my kids' interests!
