Sorry no video today. We spent Saturday together as a family on a train ride and then yesterday preparing for Hurricane Sandy that is expected to hit us later today. It’s looking to be pretty bad. We normally don’t have Hurricane like weather here, they usually downgrade or weaken to tropical storms by the time they reach PA but this one is coming at us full force. We are expecting lots of rain and high winds between today and tomorrow night. Schools have already been closed for today and tomorrow so Ethan is on his way to work with me this morning and we plan to get home early before the nasty of weather starts.
Here are a few photos from our train excursion we took on Saturday. It was lots of fun.

The trip was so much fun. You take a 40 minute ride and stopped at a depot not to far away from here. They have stands set up where you can buy lunch and hot cocoa and then watch the engine being switched from one end of the train to the other. It was a lot of fun to watch. After you get back you can go to the round house and watch the train on the roundtable be moved back inside. They have to put the train inside to keep the coals going as it was being used again for the next days excursion.
Well we are off to work and then back home to settle in for the storm. Be safe to all of you in the path of this hurricane.
