We made it through the storm without losing power for more than a few minutes. After last October’s fiasco, I am so relieved. Neal and I agreed our preparation was much better this year–last year it never occurred to us that we’d lose power for more than a day or two. There was a lot of nervous energy at Chez Golightly yesterday. I had grading to do, but after every second or third paper, I jumped up to vacuum or chop veggies. It was hard to sit still!
Once I finished my grading goal for the day, I cast on for a new project: Andrea Goutier’s Hurricane Hat. I kicked it old school, writing out the pattern in the little notebook I’ve been using for the last eight years, just in case I lost wifi. Sure was soothing to knit 2×2 rib while the wind made the trees sway.
We were so fortunate. My thoughts are with those without power, those who sustained damage. I hope you’ve got something to provide a little soothing to you, too.
