Almost a year later, short by two weeks, we had another horrendous storm come through our area Thursday afternoon causing severe damage with trees falling and power outages to over 11,000 residents/businesses just in the city where I live. I, of course, am among that group. So DH and I are living in a hotel again until power is restored. AEP, our electrical provider, was not giving expectation times as they did last year; earlier today we were told by Monday.
So my sewing bits and pieces are halted at this point. Dang!!!! We went by the house around 2pm and still no power. We extended our hotel stay another day, being optimistic that all will be well tomorrow.
Granted others have it worst than we do, our neighbor has a huge oak tree collapsed in their yard with some roof damage as a result of the tree falling toward their home. Still feel disappointed that my weekend sewing for my upcoming vaca is halted. Too much to handle to move my sewing machine and all the stuff that I need to sew while in a cramped hotel room. Maybe a smaller, basic sewing machine would be a good investment for future outages. Though I think we will invest in a generator or move to Salem, VA where they never lose power!!!
Spent sometime by the hotel pool reading the current Threads magazine. Can't sew, then read it about. Some good articles to nudge one's creativity.
