There is light, we finally have power back on at home. It was a tough few days, the humidity and sleeping were the worst for me, but all in all we just had a lot of clean up and no major damage. It is funny the things that you miss, the iron. I tried to keep busy and cut out fabric, but it usually needs to be ironed before, so I did a little planning and some new design ideas.
Busy the next few days, getting ready for teaching and all, funny it seems the storm kind of ended summer early.

Well, it is the calm before the storm here, and everyone is a little antsy. That is one of the unique things about a Hurricane, you have a lot of time to prepare and discuss and wait. We are ready, but you never know exactly what you need to be ready for. We are near enough to the coast to get a big part of the storm but far enough away to not have to evacuate. Our biggest issue is wind, we have a lot of trees. Next will be the loss of power, not looking forward to many nights of sleeping in the Southern August humidity and trying to keep the food situation together, it is a good way to use up all the things in your freezer, on the grill.
I am trying to keep some work going as well, still have deadlines to meet, but it seems like a time to just be, a do have my book light all charged up.
