I'm using Lime colored Jobelan evenweave and 986 which is a beautiful green DMC.
Yesterday we went down to visit my Grandma Faust. I mute my phone when
I'm there and when we went to leave I noticed I had like 20 texts about
severe weather. The sky was pitch black. It just started storming so we
pulled over to wait it out. There were large branches down all around
us. We hit the road and hubby texted me and asked if I was okay. So I
called him to find out what he meant. Come to find out the storm hit bad
at Fort Wayne. We were about 45 minutes south.
On the way home we saw the damage. 6 flipped over semi trucks. A 5th
wheel camper was ripped from the truck pulling it and flipped over.
Countless trees and signs were totally destroyed. One road was under
construction and the storm picked up all the orange barrels and THREW
them way way out into the fields off the road. We also saw a barn that had rolled several yards from where it was supposed to be. It was crazy.
The news said at our local airport there was a recorded 91mph wind gust!!!
We had lost power but it was restored by the time we got home. There are
thousands and thousands in my area without power and they are saying it
won't be back on till Wednesday night!!! We didn't have much damage here
at home. Our tomato plants were all laid down and a few things like
hoses were flipped over but we were lucky.
How is everyone else?
