Yikes, it's been awhile since I've posted. I don't have a lot of knitting news - knitted 7 rolled-brim caps, and still working on my hubby's afghan. Finished up quite a few projects - and lining up three to start after the 1st of the year. We did have an incredible storm here last Thursday (Dec 14th) and lost our power. We just got it back tonight at about 9:30 - and we survived it:)Our town was the hardest hit – lost 150 electrical poles along the road outside our development. We had trees and power lines down all over the place, and had family and friends calling from all over to make sure we were ok – as they had heard that Woodinville was hit the hardest. There are only three ways to get to our home – and all three roads were closed. Believe me, after the first couple of days it wasn’t fun anymore. I just kept saying that all my kiddies are home, we’re all together, and we just have to make the best of it. Of course, we lost everything in our frig and freezer – so will have to restock tomorrow. And my goal of making a different Christmas cookie everyday was crushed. I guess we’ll just have to make up for lost time. It’ll be fun baking all day – Christmas Eve. At least we’ll have our Christmas dinner. We were told all along that we might not get power back until Christmas day – or later. But, thanks to so many wonderful men and women from power companies all over the good ole USA we have it back now. We had about 50 power trucks up and down the road last night with crews from Utah, Idaho, Colorado, Montana, Oregon, Delaware, and Washington State. It was amazing – and felt so good to know that so many people were putting their lives on hold, to come here and help out. Believe me the weather hasn’t been the greatest – freezing temps and rain – lots of it. Now we just have to get caught up on everything – doing dishes, laundry, picking up the house, etc. We have been doing a lot of Christmas shopping - so now have a ton to wrap before Christmas Day. It was getting dark here before 4:00pm and believe me, it's no fun wrapping presents in the dark. It just feels so great to finally have our power back. I will post some pics of some of the damage as soon as I can. Also, some knitting pics. Hope you all have a wonderful Christmas, and Happy Holidays - I'm off to get another load of laundry going...
