New Toy: Nikon D5100 DSLR [[Pic heavy]]

I finally got a chance to sit down and start this blog. I've been hurricane-proofing my house all day. I can't believe this is actually happening, never experienced a hurricane and it hasn't hit yet and I've already had enough! The office in my basement always begins flooding when there is a regular rainstorm and it's been raining pretty heavy so far and has managed to flood pretty bad. 6 full buckets later, hands that feel like they're blistering, knots in my back, and a bad wrist - I finally got it looking like it's just been mopped. I'm scared of what's going to happen when the hurricane really does hit. I hope there is no real damage anywhere. GOD if you're reading this, pleaseeeeee help everyone out and make this all go away.. pretty please?

To take my mind off of this mayhem, I'm going to post about my new toy :) I got a DSLR for my birthday earlier this month and I loveee it! It's the Nikon D5100. I've never owned or used a DSLR camera before and am not a professional photographer who is educated in using these types of cameras but I've been learning little by little.

I'm not going to bore you with all the specs, here's a overview from Nikon:

"The Nikon D5100 and its included AF-S 18-55mm VR lens offer a host of new photographic and video tools including a 16.2 MP DX-format CMOS sensor, 4 fps continuous shooting and breathtaking Full 1080p HD Movies with full time autofocus."

Here are a few pics of the camera itself. (Pardon the not so crisp pics - I took them with my Canon point & shoot digital camera)
