Hurricane Irene is coming to my house. We are expecting strong (50 - 70 mph) winds and 5 to 8 inches of rain in the next 24 hours. Today we prepared the outside for the bad weather. I stitched in between moving chairs, putting away stuff and worrying about the weather. Hopefully all will be well. If I miss a day or two, it could be a power outage. We have a brand new generator that has passed all it's tests. However this will be the 'big test'. For now we are just waiting for the storm to arrive. Everyone, please stay safe. I will check in again when I can.
