    Went to my Mom's after work to do our weekly (for the moment) fabric listing and have supper. Right in the middle of everything it came a MIGHTY storm. Wind, sheeting rain, hail, branches hitting the house. When we tried to go home, there was a large tree down on one end of the road and trees and power lines both down on the other end. So, back to Mom's for a long while. At her house, there were several large branches down, and a portion of the chinaberry tree broken off. Finally, quite late, we got a call letting us know that the tree had been cleared where we could get home. Branches all over the yard, tree down behind the house; total mess. Hubby will be having fun cleaning up the yard after work tomorrow. The good news is that no branches fell on the sewing cottage!

    We finally got a good rain tonight. I live in central Virginia and we were getting desperate for rain.

    Oh dear - just saw this & realized this is probably why you haven't responded to my PM about a fabric in your sale. I am glad everyone is ok & the sewing cottage survived the storm & fallen trees.

    Glad you are oaky. Dry, dry, dry in our part of Texas. Not wishing any bad luck on others but we could use a small tropical storm off the coast that pushed some mositure up to North Texas.

    I agree, but not until I have a new roof. Then it can rain all it wants. :)
