We are under a Tornado warning, which is fairly common here. I am trying to finish a project and going good. I dont want to stop. Think I will just keep an eye on the news.

Kaye,
be sure to watch the news and sky (do you have sirens in your area)

I hope you don't get a bad storm. I always unplug my sewing machine and computer when it storms!

no sirens we are in the country. Storm really seems to have already passed. Maybe warning will end soon.

Yes, I did. I am in denial about having to go back to work tomorrow. I know I should be glad I have a job and it is a good one at that.

We have a loudspeaker type warning thing about 4 blocks from our house. If you are inside you can't hear it at all, and if outside, hard to understand what they are saying. Not too much good!
