TTMT #50 & Flooding update.



Hi everyone,

Since this video on Sunday a lot has happened.

Just a quick update about our flooding in my town. We are all fine, there has been no deaths, but a lot of homes have washed away. Many homes is without electricity and water.
My home is fine (we are on top of a hill), but it rained INSIDE my son's room. And the damaged is quite bad, but the rest of the house is fine.
I couldn't leave my yard this morning, as there were trees blocking our driveway. But with some brute force from everyone, we managed to move enough of them out of the way to go to work. Yes, GO TO WORK. All the schools have closed, as several schools has severe flood damage.

They are predicting a LOT more rain with electrical storms this afternoon (Tuesday), so things might get worse, but I pray that it doesn't.

I might not be online for much longer, as the internet at work is on and off all the time. And the lights / electricity is flickering. So I will speak with everybody when I can.



Love to all.
Vanda

Oh wow, that's horrible about the flooding. I hope your house isn't affected any more beyond the raining inside the bedroom. I had that happen once, it's no fun. Keep us all up to date on how you are.

The camping patterns are adorable! Nice work on all of them.

Spock really was the heart (even though Vulcans are supposed to be logical!) of Trek. I haven't seen Beyond yet but I understand there's a really nice reference to Spock Prime in it. A friend of mine has seen the movie and she said she loved it, it's very fun.

Thank you so much.
And a big happy birthday to you. Hope you have a fantastic day.

Today was nice and sunny and some of the water is starting to drain away now.

First of all, I'm thinking nothing but good thoughts for you and your family with all of the flooding.

I have your pattern in front of me to check the sewing order on. It's next on my list. I'll send you a message as soon as I'm done.

When I saw the news about the new Star Trek being on Netflix, I thought of you! I'm so glad you'll get to watch it when it! :)

So excited about Star Trek. It was funny though, I had just cancelled with Netflix to try out a slighter cheaper but similar product, one of our local ones. And then the news came out, I felt like kicking myself. I will re activate with Netflix again at the end of the month.

I hope all is well and the flooding is over. That is so scary. I have had rain in my project room, thankfully just in the closet. It was horrible and we still haven't repainted, so the ceiling and wall are still stained. Ugh. It ended with our having to have the entire roof replaced. I hope you won't have to do too much repair work at your place.

We don't have netflix but this new Star Trek might just be the show that gets my husband to want netflix, we shall see. He's kind of annoyed to have to pay to see it. Cheapskate! WE have HBO on our cable so we'll end up watching the new movie when it finally shows up there, probably around the time you get the movie in your theaters.

First, I'm glad that your home is on a hill. Raining in your son's room and having to move fallen trees is bad enough!!! I hope you continue stay safe. My thoughts and good wishes go out to all your friends, family and neighbors who have experienced damages.

Second, and on a lighter note, I really like the camping quilt. Patrick and Vanessa love to camp and I may need to use your pattern to make them a couple of camping pillows. I am NOT going to commit to another quilt right now. My plate is full!

You just keep right on talking about the FB QAL. I don't think I can get much more anxious to get started though.
