So far, this is Hurricane Sandy up here

This is the Hudson River, about 8 miles from the ocean!  I have never seen whitecaps like this on the river.  We get a few every now and then, but this is pretty roiled up.  The wind out of New Jersey is really blowing.  Fortunately, though my windows face New Jersey and they are wriggling in their frames, where I have to get out of the building to walk the dogs is on the other side, so the wind is blocked by the building.

Interesting to note, the Sanitation dept. picked up all the trash cans, so I had to bring "the evidence" home with me!  Living in New York City is a new trip every day.

 This is what the river looks like on a "normal" day...

hoarding again.....

These cardboard forms came inside my last / latest purchase of Danskos.  I just thought they were "good for something if I could only think of what".  So I have been layering various scraps of paper on them... they are still just hollow cardboard forms, so rather light.  NOW... they aren't covered completely, but WHAT is the next step for them...... ideas anyone?
