So, here we are on the cusp of a truly remarkable storm event, a hurricane within a nor easter, something that has never occurred before or so say the meteorologists. Over 85 million people will feel the impact of Hurricane Sandy as she heads towards the East Coast as a hurricane 1, taking a dramatic left turn anywhere between Washington, DC and the Jersey shore and heading inland. From Virginia to Massachusetts, people are getting ready to hunker down and some are already evacuating.
Here in Maryland we are expecting not only huge amounts of rain (could be up to over 10 inches or more), high winds of 65 to 70 mph, but snow! That’s right, we could be seeing large amounts of snow as well. So will parts of West Virginia, Pennsylvania and Ohio. *shakes head* So rain, wind, hail, snow, flooding most certainly. Have the weather gods left anything out? I don’t think so. It just seems so unreal. So of course, we made sure that the dog food was stocked up on, ditto the wine, water, and canned goods and snacks. So we are good, I think. But then there is my blog. And while I have a generator, that doesn’t mean the servers and towers won’t be coming down, so if there are no updates after a while, just nod and say “Well, the Frankenstorm must have got her!”, and know I will be back up and running as soon as I am absolutely able to do so.
I also want to give a shout out to Jay of Joyfully Jay just back from the fabulous GayRomLit2012 in Albuquerque, NM. She had an outstanding time and so did everyone else who attended. So many great authors, bloggers and readers to meet and party with. I so wanted to be there but the pictures she (and others) took made me some of the joy and fun that was going on. Wow, what a time and great photos to boot. And she also brought me back a bag of swag! Naked men playing cards, fluffer lip balm to name a few. Hooray! Now I am determined to be there in Atlanta for next year’s conference. GayRomLit2013 in Atlanta! woohoo!
So let’s see what I have planned for this week, shall we?

Tuesday: Risking It All by Lee Brazil
Wednesday: Tigerland by Sean Kennedy
Thursday: The F Words by Anyta Sunday

That’s it. Now let’s see what happens. Fingers crossed. Kindle charged. Sigh.
