Hi all. Just wanted to stick my nose in to say thanks for all the emails and concern about us. We made it through Irene. But we lost power about 5:30pm on Sunday and didn't get it back till noon today. Ugh. And we had 5 1/4" of water in our basement -- more than any time before. With no power. Ugh. (The water didn't start subsiding till late late Monday and wasn't gone till yesterday.) The plumber is currently downstairs installing a new water heater. Everything else down there seems to work, thank God. There will have to be a major basement cleanup at some point, but not sure when that will happen.
I apologize ahead of time if I don't comment on anyone's blogs for a while or answer your comments to my blog. I will do my best to start commenting again. I will also do a TUSAL post soon and a stitching update.
We were lucky when it comes down to it. We're safe and sound, the house is safe and sound, so we're all good! But boy, I hope never to live through another hurricane. lol!
Oh, and a funny thing. The girl child had a vacation down in Myrtle Beach from last Wednesday to yesterday. I was panicking about her going down there with the hurricane coming. Well, of course she came through with hardly any bad weather at all in Myrtle Beach. We were the ones with the hurricane. Wouldn't you know it!
I will post again soon.
