Lost Arts studio

A lot of the fiber arts I enjoy are things like tatting, netmaking, chair caning, and even weaving, where people will come up to me when I demonstrate and solemnly tell me, "That's a lost art."

More Later

Our internet connection was down for the last few days, while we were getting steady rain courtesy Hurricane Ike. It turned out not to be the broadcast tower, but our antenna, which was just replaced.

Ooooo, internet, shiny!

Meanwhile we've all caught the latest cold.

And the rain brought us 8 or 9 inches of water in our usually-dry basement.

I'll be back when my head is not so stuffed up.

Edited to add: Oh. Yeah.
Weather report:

Rain, September to date: 9.21 inches.
Normal for month: 2.23 inches.
To date last year: 0.57 inches.

wow, a lot of rain! We were all geared up for Hannah and then we got some rain but not a terribly unusual amount. I'm always glad this time of year not to be in Texas and Florida. They seem to get hit an awful lot.

Bummer about the water in the basement! Hope you don't have any outdoor activities planned. Just stay in, drink lots of hot liquids, and rest,rest, rest. You know all this, but sometimes we all need reminders.

Oh, wow! You guys have gotten hammered. I hope you're surviving, and that you're getting to nurse that cold, instead of spending all of your time pumping out the basement. Hang in there (and please feel free to send some of that rain our way -- we could use it).

Oh, nasties. I hate wet basements. Did you have a terrible mess?
