oh, fay! August 25, 2008

Filed under: catch-up,knitting,news,school — Ren @ 8:58 pm

ah, the things that have happened since i posted two weeks ago. i had a relaxing last few weeks of summer. mom and i made plans to get back to campus last wednesday and visit my grandparents on the way, but we got held up by tropical storm fay. then we thought maybe we could go back on friday, but fay decided to slow down to about 6mph and stall us another day. she also knocked out our power for a full day and sent us bailing standing water out of our side yard to keep it from overflowing into our house. thank God the rain let up soon after that and the water did not harm our house or belongings. i made it back to campus on saturday, but we didn’t have the time to visit my grandparents. classes started today. *sigh*



this picture was taken from my window. it is our little cul-de-sac after the sewers overflowed. it’s pretty hard to tell how much water that is, but my neighbor is standing in at least ankle-deep water and the yards and driveways are underwater pretty far in. at least it is over now! ^^


in other, more knitting-related news, i finished off the elbow patches that hakucho suggested way back on sweater day. i used the elbow patches in domiknitrix as a jumping-off point and worked the patches from there. i am excited that i can wear my favorite sweater again!



i hope that everyone is having a great week and please keep missy and her family in your thoughts & prayers as they have just suffered another loss in their family.

    So sorry for all your troubles due to Fay. Glad though you had no damage to your house…that’s a very good thing.

    I LOVE your sweater. It looks like it was supposed to have elbow patches!!! May you wear you sweater happily for a long long time to come…can always make more patches if you have to :)

    And here I was thinking you just had a nice little pond between the houses :
    Glad that everything is fine and that Fay behaved herself.
    Your elbow pads look awesome! Well done you, now you’re going to have tons more wear out of it.

    Glad to see that everyone is okay after Fay. Now it’s time for Hawai‘i to crush Florida. :-)

    when you say sewers – you dont mean the poo poo ones? your talking about the drains right? :) – its a bit confusing for me as we call things different names here and im sure your neighbour wouldnt be out standing in poo water right? *lol* – have fun back at school!

    Thank you…!!!

    It’s been another bad week in the month of AUG.

    Sorry, you guys had such a mess with Fay. That doens’t sound like alot of fun.

    I love how your sweater turned out. You are so brave. I would have been afraid to try to patch it. It looks awesome.
