Hi, all! Sorry I didn't update you sooner. I got a few e-mails from people who wanted to know if I was all right & whether or not prolonged power outages had driven me completely feral & forced me to cannibalize Weedinator. Thank you for your concern, but I didn't have to turn savage.
We did get a LOT of rain. I'm not in a flood-prone area, but as you can see, even people who don't live in low-lying areas can get water buildup.
A wee bit windy
So I was huddled up in my house, surrounded by books & yarn. Strangely, rain puts me in a knitting mood like few things will, so I'm almost finished with my first lacy sock -- normally, it takes me a good two months to finish a pair because I'm so slow. I knitted, listened to the wind (which sounded like it could rip the bricks right off our house), watched the storm's exceedingly slow progress on the TV...and was thankful that we still had power, that no water came inside our home, that we were all safe.
Mother Nature may be furious at times, but she can also be gentle & sweet. The same wind that tore down trees can drift over you on a hot day & offer relief. The same pounding rain sometimes comes down in little sheets that make the flowers grow. I'd never underestimate her because I've seen all the damage -- and the beauty -- she can bring.
Thanks again for being concerned. We're doing fine!Pin It Now!
