Knowing whether to stay or evacuate during a hurricane is never easy. There are people in mandatory evacuation zones and flood plains of course. Families in ancient houses with questionable roofs or mobile homes have an easy decision. Our house has windows rated to 150 miles per hour. We had 28 inches of rain during tropical storm Fay and stayed bone dry. The ocean is 6 miles away with two causeways and a two barrier island as buffers. Still, we watch and wait. The highways are packed with the people who have to evacuate. We have friends who left for Atlanta or north Florida yesterday, they are still on the road. So for now we are staying put.
Twinkle Stars was a Rainbow Scrap Challenge quilt of last year perhaps? It is now freshly pressed and ready to be loaded onto the frame. First though, I'll take a few minutes of my new favorite hobby, bouncing back and forth between the weather channel, tropical tidbits and wunderground. The 11 am update should be out soon.
