Good Bye Irene!

Bad news for the east coast!  Hurricane Irene is on the way.  We have tied down,  bungeed down,  put up and are on the way to the grocery store to buy bread,  milk and wine (the essentials).  She is a nasty looking lady. 

We are trying to be prepared.  Lets hope it won't be as bad as it looks like it might.  Yesterday we thought it was going to the east of Cape Hatteras but this morning it looks like she will go between Cape Hatteras and Cape Lookout.  Right now it is a wait and see.   I wish I had a battery operated sewing machine.

We had an earthquake earlier this week!  Crazy weather week.

Their saying for us around the Greensboro/Winston Salem area, it could be another HUGO...I remember HUGO, NO FUN......we were without power for over a week. Fingers crossed it's not bad at all.

"I'll see you in my dreams?" Isn't that the next line? lol

Take care, and give us an update when you can, will be thinking good thoughts for you.

You have a little time to get a hexie project started, can always stitch by hand! (Don't kill the messenger!)
