Different Kinds of Scary

Well here we are, not blown away or drowned yet again. Hurricane Sandy hit the coast a couple of hundred miles north of us in the end. Sounds like a lot especially to Brits but remember that the thing was 650 miles across by the time it was level with us in Virginia. Happily at that time the centre was still well offshore. “All” we got were 4 days of non-stop rain totalling about 7 inches and winds often steady at 35 mph and gusting 65 plus on Monday and Tuesday. All the nasties were on the northside, the storm surge pushed ahead of the landfall point and so we likely got less of a hit than anyone between Cuba  and Maine.

Banished Jr. was devastated that we had to bring in all the graveyard d├ęcor before the weekend and never did manage to get it back out. But at least he got his Trick or Treat in which I wasn’t really expecting. So he was out in his award winning (Hunt Club Farm Fall Festival 5 and under costume contest 1st prize) scary scarecrow costume so all was well with his world.

Once again the blog view numbers have me scratching my head. The total page views for October, a month when I posted only twice thanks to computer glitches, were the second highest ever for Banished’s Bugs.  A lot higher, for example, than July where I was posting madly from our mountain vacation including brown bears and painfully cute Bambis. It makes not a jot of sense.

Thats actually the highest monthly hit count not the second best. Thats even more puzzling then.
