Yesterday morning, we made national news! Some storms passed through the area. Before they passed through, our main concern was not getting caught in a nasty downpour during the morning paper route. Thunderstorms can make one exceedingly wet in a very short period of time. It was dry when the papers got delivered, but there was a band of clouds the size of Pennsylvania lurking a few minutes west of us, so they were delivered by motor vehicle instead of bicycle. Good thing, too. Before we'd been inside a minute, God opened the fire hose on us and visibility dropped to 'not across the street.' After a while, the rains dropped off and the winds picked up.
Lots of winds.
Turns out, we should have been concerned about getting walloped by a tree or trampoline or roof during the paper route, not getting wet. One article in the papers says there are more trees down in town than there are people. That *is* an exaggeration, but not much.
|Across the street.|
|The back yard ... our property goes just a wee bit beyond the garden beds|
Canis was MOST unhappy when the power flicked off in the afternoon and the carbon monoxide detector beeped.
I got two packages of yarn yesterday. One for a test knit, and the other for playing with. Alpaca laceweight .... mmmmm!
