Power outage

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.

More later.

  1. You poor thing! Hope you can think of the hotel stay as being in a spa resort - and get your power back soon!

    1. Yes, we are safe. Power was on when we came by the house around 1:00pm. So happy to return home, hotel living is fun for short doses.

    1. Thank you. Back home now, power was restored sometime this AM. We came by the house around 1PM and found that we had power, nothing like clicking the garage door opener and it works!!!!

  4. Is it just me or does it seem like weather is affecting us all more now? And I understand about not sewing since I have no sewing room either...

    1. I hoped your sewing room was revived from the other damaging storm. Our power is back now, no energy to sew though. Cleaning the refrig and throwing out food was most energy and time consuming task. Then going to store to replenish some food supplies. I do think the weather has been worse of late.

  6. How tedious for you - you'll need to get a treadle machine and oil lamp next.

    You are safe though - which is the main thing. I do hope you are back sewing soon.

  7. Ouch! Hope you get back in your home soon. I know first hand what it's like to be separated from the sewing machine. Best wishes.
