I took this picture of 3 of my cat companions the morning after we had the big thunderstorm earlier this week. As soon as I raised the blind, these guys were right up onto the windowsill, as if to check out what had happened outside during all the commotion the night before.
I am thinking of all my friends who live along the Eastern seaboard this morning, in the Carolinas, Virginia, New York and the Maritimes, hoping they are all safe and dry and not experiencing too much hardship as Hurricane Irene moves along her path. I'm thinking you too will be anxious for the storm to pass, to see what everything looks like when it is over. Be well, my friends.
