Back to normalcy!

Hurricane Florence has moved on, leaving more damage and destruction elsewhere.  I consider myself very lucky as we lost some roof shingles and had two small ceiling leaks.  My neighbors on both sides had portions of their fences knocked down.

Power was restored about 4:30 PM yesterday. We had a small blackout later in the evening and power came back quickly.  Still lots of damage in other areas of our county as well as in other counties close by.

I am ready to get back to sewing.  I have measured a pair of my favorite shorts and made note of those measurements and have determined the size I should consider using for the Lander Shorts.

This AM waking up to sunshine and A/C was a blessing.  Back to my normal routine of coffee and reading pattern reviews on Pattern Review. I have several days worth to catch up on and many sewists have been busy sewing. 

Catch up with everyone later.

    1. Thank you! We were fortunate as there are other parts of the county still without power and lots of damage from downed trees. There are a lot of electric and tree service trucks coming into our area to help restore power; and in a lot of cases the downed tree caused the down power lines.

    1. Thanks Carolyn. There are many people in the New Bern area, about 30 miles from us who have lost their homes due to river flooding. We came close to considering that area prior to our move.
