Hurricane Irene

Here in Northern New Jersey we were inundated with flood waters from the great Hurricane Irene.  I was able to escape to Florida luckily, so I am safe and sound in my comfy hotel on the beach.  I wish I took pictures from the plane of Irene from above.  She was a massive Hurricane stretching over 450 miles wide.  Seeing a hurricane from above was amazing, and to be lucky enough to see such a massive storm from above for such a weather geek as I was a special treat.

Unfortunately, back at the ranch, here is some of the flooding we will be dealing with for the next few days:

I will be posting food blogs as soon as I get back to NJ.  I would love to make Spicie Foodie's refrigerator pickles, they look amazingly good!  'Til next time!

  1. So glad you were safe during the storm, I was watching it anxiously on this coast. I was admiring your sausage and peppers too. We ate them often growing up, I just wish they still agreed with me, the peppers that is. Hope you have a great week.

  2. Thanks Gina, we're still suffering flooding in some areas of Northern NJ when it rains hard. Glad to see you back on your blog!
