The "Norm"

Mornin'! It's 62° in WW this morning. Sun's just about over the horizon. Everthing is fine as normalcy is once again back in this islander's life. After arriving home yesterday afternoon and sitting out Hurricane Irene in Pennsylvania 90 miles from here last Friday until Sunday, I surprisingly discovered I missed the bullet as there was no damage to our home. No broken windows, not one tree down (we have 3 on our property), no torn canvas awnings, no flashing lights on appliances, no loss of electricity or gas, no water in the house (although there's a small leak of some kind in the front porch and some water under the house in the crawl space and water still in the back yard). Nothing was amiss...everything is exactly how we left it. Alot to be thankful for and all that anxiety...wasted. Today's weather...a beauty...just reaching 80° skies will abound with minimal breezes out of the North at 5-10mph. A lovely day at the Shore. High tide:8:07a.m.; Low tide:2:19p.m.; Ocean temp:73°; Sunset:7:33p.m. My suggestion is make it a beach day. No one's here yet! Speaking of the beach...sorry to report that did take a hit and suffered some major beach erosion.

I've finally discovered that most anxiety about the future is a waste of energy better spent almost anywhere else as things never turn out as you horribly imagine. In other words, "Don't Worry, Be Happy!"
