I haven't knit or crocheted anything in 3 days. My honey's been sick with the flu. I've been trying to take care of him as best as possible while following hazmat procedures.
Just when I though the coast was clear to play with yarn, along comes a trail of dangerous thunderstorms. We spent most of the night either glued nervously to the TV or in the basement.
I actually took my knitting with me. There's no way I'd be able to save all my yarn in time, but my extensive collection of knitting tools and favorite reference books are all in one bag, so that, and my current project bag, were all safe in the basement with us.
As the warning siren was blaring, a tornado went right over our heads, and then touched down again a few miles past us at the North Little Rock Airport. Some people weren't so lucky - several homes were destroyed, lots of big trees were uprooted, and a car dealership was damaged.
On another note, over the next few weeks, I'll be updating the older posts with better photos. Basically, I'm moving them from a paid site, to the free blogger/google/picasa service, and at the same time, provide more detailed images. That way, if I do die in a tornado and/or yarngear.com site expires, this blog will still have its photos.
