I'm back from my job responsibilities at the state Emergency Operations Center. Much happier to be in my own house and with my family, although we're likely to be without electricity for several days.
Throughout the day today the storm's effects have been minimal. We've had light rain and wind interspersed with sunshine. My DH and son finished all the hurricane prep to the house while I was away, so now it's just a matter of waiting for the storm to pass. Wind and rain are definitely picking up now, but our house is sturdy and built to withstand tropic storm winds.
I didn't have time to put together any type of sewing hand work before leaving for work yesterday. It was torture to sit all night with nothing to do but check the storm's progress and watch the hands of the clock move ever so slowly. Getting a hand sewing kit together is my biggest priority for the next 24 hours. Hmm, should I set up some Just Takes Two blocks or some hexies? Decisions, decisions!
Don't know when or if we will lose power, but I'll be doing my best to keep sewing through it all. See you soon!
