Yesterday afternoon tornado sirens started blaring about 5:30 p.m. Hard to hear over the air-conditioning, but I went outside to confirm the sound, then looked at the TV. "Take cover now, go to a safe spot in your house." Yikes! The live radar showed this monster headed to my area of Dallas. I grabbed the laptop, IPhone, knitting bag(duh), and Trinket, and trundled down to the studio which is bunkered into the slope of my lot. Joey and Marta, my neighbors, and Pikawa, their tiny, shivering Yorkie joined me. We watched the news on-line as the twister lifted and headed north. Whew!
Outdoor check showed only a little damage to landscaping. Even the persnickety satellite never lost it's signal. Hermine's wind are headed north. Take cover, folks.
I'm a sure enough Dallas native who spent a good part of my life in northern New Mexico, where I learned the arts of spinning, weaving, and dyeing. Combining those skills with my long time love, knitting, is what I do best these days.
