Thank the lord that we bought a house on a mountain and that our house perches way up high on our property. Losing phone, internet and power was nothing compared to what others lost. And some poor folks in other parts lost their lives. This event has touched me greatly to the point that on Tuesday I wanted to just run away and not face any more images or messages. Thankfully yesterday I was ok again and made a trip to the local shelter with some food and other donations. It was heart warming to see everyone helping out in any way that they could, be it donating food, clothing or their time. We have people staying there who have lost everything and we also have 60 National Guard camped at the school. Bless their hearts.
I hope everyone out there in blogland is high and dry.
I have been madly busy with customer quilts and that part of my life was disrupted with power outages here and there but I managed to get some hand sewing finished up and LOTS or reorganizing of my studio that we have moved to the basement! Thank goodness that the basement stayed dry throughout Irene! phew!
Here are some photos of our raging creek during Irene. At one point it was 70 feet wide. These photos were taken when the rain had stopped and the water had already receded and I had ventured out with my camera. Another photo showing how high up our house is on our property.
The horses stayed in their shelter for 2 days! They are NOT silly!
creek before Irene!
house up high and dry..
I hope to catch up with everyone's blogs in the next day or two!
Ooroo for now. :)
