Be careful, Mobile. We are in the path of it, too, as it moves inland. Our last refugee, from Hurricane Laura in LA, just went home today. He's an uncle who stayed up here with us, waiting for his power to be restored. That area is a huge mess. Hope we are not in for the same. We expect wind and rain, but hopefully not too much of either.

If the power stays on, it will be a good time to work on a quilt!

For everyone who will be in the path of the hurricaine, please stay safe and let us know how you are doing. You will be in our thoughts and prayers.

Default Hurricane Sally and COVID news

Looks like my part of the coast is safe for the moment. Mobile, my fingers are crossed that you have minimal inconveniences from Hurricane Sally. Stay safe everyone no matter what their weather. Covid is still out there.

Speaking of COVID.... I just saw this interesting article that says there is a chemical our body produces to keep our blood pressure down and COVID seems to cause our bodies to produce too much of it, thus causing all the symptoms associated with Covid. https://www.businessinsider.com/coro...n-storm-2020-9

Vitamin D is helping to keep that chemical from running out of control is one of the points that came out of the article. It doesn't prevent the virus from taking hold of you but it is linked to "less severe" covid symptoms.

I thought I would share this info with all my quilting buddies as I don't know when this will hit the mainstream news. Lets get outside more! Or at least take D3 supplements.

I agree, everyone in the way of the hurricane stay safe. When does the hurricane season usually end

Thanks Terri... I haven't looked yet today to see the current path of the hurricane. As of yesterday we were in the path, but things change so fast.

We usually have hurricanes in late August and all of the month of Sept.

SBG, theres no chance well be starting early. Several packages were mailed early but are delayed. Its possible that I may have to ship a day or two late depending upon their arrival as Im going to be out of town this weekend (unexpected when I set dates) so I wont be able to work on the group until Monday. This wont leave enough hours to get it all done if the packages arrive on the weekend. Well just have to see how the mail goes this week.

Of course that's fine, Janice. I know you'd mail early if you could. I hope the delayed packages get moving again!

Terriamn - hurricane season goes through November but the peak is right now.

Janice - the hurricane is likely to interfere with package delivery, too. I know you will get the packages out to us when you can. Thank you for coordinating this for us! Hopefully, you won't have hurricane level winds to deal with and the rain won't be obnoxious by the time Hurricane Sally gets to you.

I saw Cheesehead is in line to get the storm, too. Now is a good time to own a treadle sewing machine while we wait for the energy companies to get their lines repaired after the storm.
