So glad you didn't have any damage. I have thought about you today. Stay safe!

Thanks. Glad you're safe!

We're in the midst of it right now--wind's really whipping up. I'm caught between being blase--I've lived through several worse storms in FL--and being drawn into the hype. But being as far inland as we are (near DC), I think our main danger is from flying tree branches or power outages. We've got another hour of worsening winds until things gradually start to slow down. I'm kind of making rash promises to donate to charity if we get through this with the power intact. Every time the power flickers, the donation amount increases ;)

Stay safe tonight y'all!

Thanks for the update! It's windy in Indiana (which kinda blows my mind, no pun intended) and I've been thinking about all you East Coasters all day.


Glad your safe. Hope the flooding isn't horrendous.

Glad you're okay. Been thinking about you and your family. Thanks for the update!


Thank you for the update, glad to know you are all safe.
I'm outside of Harrisburg PA, lots of wind damage, no power for about 2 hours, but just fine otherwise. Surely could have been much worse.
Cold and still raining here.


Yikes! Glad you are okay, Carmen!


Found your website through another ... I recognized the pictures immediately! LOL. Do you live in VA Beach? I do! So glad that Sandy has moved on, but so sorry for the troubles she has caused north of us.


Pretty much the same here on MD's Eastern Shore. Lots of rain and wind. Lots of property damage at the beach.Things r calming down here, flood waters receding. Our home was very lucky,we never lost power, many across town did. Our few trees were blown down a few hurricanes ago, so no worries there. Back to school tomorrow. Glad to hear you guys r safe.

Hi Carmen,

I just stopped in to say thank you for blessing me as you do. I am so thankful for the encouraging words you give to all of us. Thank you so much.

About Me

  • Carmen Staicer is a whirlwind of energy and execution, who never sleeps and drinks way too much coffee. She works from home as Social Media Programs Manager for SheKnows, and is the mom to six kids, most of whom play instruments, sing or dance and all of whom are much smarter than she will ever be. In other words, her house is never ever quiet or still. A concentration of asthma, food allergies, spectrum disorders and learning disabilities means that she spends an awful lot of time second guessing herself and Dr. Googling, as well as learning to cook everything the family might like to eat. In her spare time, she enjoys reading, boxing (she has her Black Belt in Muay Thai), sleeping, exploring coffee shops, photography, ballet class and cooking. She excels in being a smart mouth and has her major in sarcasm, with a dual minor in BS studies and avoiding laundry.
