We walked down to the beach yesterday morning to check out the wave action before things got too serious and I snapped this picture of pigeons hiding out from the storm in a sheltered spot. Turns out they were hunkered down.
When we got back to our coach, Marilyn, as she opened her book, commented that it was probably time to just “hunker down”
That got us to thinking about where the term “hunker down” comes from so I googled “hunker down“.
Turns out there was more than the pigeons and the Vanstones hunkered down. There were millions of other people all doing the same thing. According to google there were even states told to hunker down (which leaves me to wonder how do you hunker down a state?).
The good news is that it works. We awoke this morning to no wind, an almost clear sky and only the odd drop of rain.
So, anyway, we were not alone and the now re-branded Super Storm has moved on to create havoc and destruction for others in its path.
I want you to know that if you are in the path of Sandy or any other tragedy we are thinking of you. My best advice to you would be that you too should just hunker down.
