As It Stands blog: It’s a Red - White- & Blue hump day today

Statue of Liberty

  Good Day World!

It’s a red-white-and-blue hump day today as we prepare for the 4th of July holiday tomorrow. The big event will be the re-opening of the Statue of Liberty for tours.

Months after Superstorm Sandy swamped her little island, the Statue of Liberty will finally welcome visitors again on Independence Day.

Sandy made landfall one day after the statue's 126th birthday, flooding most of the 12 acres that she stands upon with water that surged as high as 8 feet. Lady Liberty herself was spared, but the surrounding grounds on Liberty Island took a beating.

Folks across the country will be celebrating our independence with ceremonies and fireworks. I have to admit the fireworks part drives me crazy! And animals! Perhaps because I was a demolition expert in the Army. Loud sounds tend to make me uneasy.

Anyway, it’s nice to be back from my blog break.

Time for me to walk on down the road..
