Scavenger Hunt – Week #15

When Sandy arrived Monday night, our power/phone/Internet went out.  They were still out the next afternoon.  Eager to get out of the house (and hoping to catch some “storm” images for this week’s Scavenger Hunt), I tagged along with my husband on errands. 

On the way to town, I mentioned that I would wait for him in the truck while he shopped in his “man” store.  I was perfectly content to people watch while passing the time.  Being the considerate person that he is, my husband made a quick stop at Stewart’s and surprised me by coming out with a newspaper.

Next stop:  the “man” store.  While I waited in the truck, did I read the newspaper that my husband so thoughtfully purchased for me?  Of course not!  The whole time he was gone, I was busily photographing the newspaper!  My husband got a big chuckle out of that. 

I never did capture any “storm” images.  Thankfully, Sandy didn’t wreak too much havoc in our area.  Other than some stormy looking clouds, it was business as usual in the Glove cities.

Funny story & great images. So glad our area dodged the "storm bullet". I'm glad you made good use of your time while waiting for your husband. You can read anytime, but getting the shot is imperative "at the decisive moment"

I always enjoy your stories and photos! The stormy skies tell a story of an area that was spared but threatened.

Ditto to all of the above! :-)
