What kind of a name for a hurricane is Sandy? Sandy is a friendly name, evoking images of sweet, innocent Sandy from the movie, Grease, but this hurricane is anything but friendly! Although we are not going to be hit near as hard where I live as they are being hit on the American north-east coast, the problem here is the temperature. It is only 1° Celcius here right now in Southern Ontario, the rain is starting, and we are under a wind warning. To add to this, it rained all weekend long, and as a result the ground is completely saturated already, so more rain is not a good thing. Who knows, we might even get hit with snow with how cold it is, and if the power goes out from the high winds, it’s going to get very cold really fast, and we don’t have a generator or even a fireplace!! I’m crossing my fingers for all of the people in Sandy’s path on the coast and hoping that Sandy takes a valium and settles down before she gets here.
In the meantime, because it’s not exactly photography weather, I decided to revisit my archives. To brighten up a yucky night, here are some cheery shots of a rose from a bouquet that Mike gave to me back in 2009 on our anniversary. I took the bloom outside, stuck the stem into the ground, and sat on the lawn snapping shots from different angles and distances. Roses are just gorgeous don’t you think? They make me forget about the weather outside :).
