The sun is shining...

...the winds are gently blowing...Irene has gone on to visit others...and still no sewing!  *LOL*

I was lucky.  I didn't lose power during the worse of the storm last night or this morning...however, my Mom did and then her basement sump pump stopped working so when I got there this morning at 9am, there was at least a foot of water in her basement.

After spending a few hours in my apartment...I only live 5 minutes up the road from her...we went back to find the power on and the sump pump slowly doing it's job.  Another hour's wait and we were able to get into the basement and mop up all the leftover water.  Of course, we will need to go through a few boxes that even tho' they were raised up off the floor, managed to get wet!

So I'm finally back home and I'm tired...so no sewing for me.  However, I did discover that the next town over from me is totally flooded and the highway by me is also flooded...unless the waters recede tonight, I won't be able to get to work on the bus tomorrow...gosh...I'm soooo sad about that! ;)

...as always, more later!

  4. I'm glad you didn't experience any real disaster. My youngest daughter in CT was evacuated and she's been safely tucked away in -NJ with her boyfriend, his parents and dog. I'm glad she's safe. g

  5. I'm glad it wasn't worse. Although, it was pretty darn bad for some.

    Sounds like tomorrow might be an ideal time for some sewing!

  6. I get snow days. I think it's only fair for you to get "flood" days.

  7. Hey neighbor!
    I was lucky too, power on the entire time. Princeton U is officially closed tmw. I've been following twitter about road closures, and saw a pic of Rt 1 in Lawrenceville submerged!
    Just installed my first ever invisible zip. Having dinner now, back to the machine soon. :)

  15. Glad you survived Irene! We are far enough inland in NC that we didn't even get any rain. Love the list of "must haves." The only one I won't attempt is the pony hairpiece. Have not worn a ponytail since I was seven. Am not going to start now.
