hurricane sandy {checking out the storm}

30 Oct

I had yesterday off. School was closed because of Hurricane Sandy. And Dan left work early because of the storm. So of course, what would we decide to do? Go out in the storm of course.

We decided to head down to the beach to check out the waves and the wind. The wind was so so so strong. I don’t think I have ever been in wind that strong. I think at one point I was actually leaning into the wind and still standing.

We weren’t the only crazy ones to brave the storm….

We were ready for the weather. At least I was with my huge yellow rainboots.

We left Hampton Beach and went down the street a little to the beach we usually go to. We couldn’t even make it down the steps because of all of the sea foam and how high the water was.


And the wind was blowing so hard we were getting attacked by sea foam blowing all over the place.

The storm wasn’t really that bad here. Just some rain and a lot of wind. We didn’t lose power but I know there are a lot of people who did. I hope everyone is staying safe and gets their power back soon.

Does anyone else go out in the storm to check out the beach or the area?

Hurricane Irene

29 Aug

So Hurricane Irene came up the east coast and was supposed to be awful and hit us hard. By the time it got up to the NH coast, there wasn’t much left. Everyone was running around getting supplies. We even loaded up on water and flashlights in case the power went out.

Here on the coast, it rained and was windy. But that was about it.

Even still, Dan and I wanted to go check out the ocean 5 minutes away from us and see how crazy the waves were.

And, like I said, it was pretty windy….

I know people who are more south had it much worse. And people who are more inland too. People lost power and I’m sure there are many who haven’t gotten power back yet. I hope all those people are doing well and I hope they get their power back soon. I’m thankful that nothing bad happened here and we didn’t lose power.

Now, if only school hadn’t been closed today so I could go in to get ready for the kids to come tomorrow…..
