Just sitting here in Wilmington, NC waiting for Hurricane Irene...So, we're now on the projected path in the "cone of death". Actually, the latest model has it coming right to Wilmington! And, the Weather Channel people got here last night! LOL

We'll be busy here at the water/sewer authority preparing and making sure we stay fully operational during the storm.Have a planning/hurricane prep meeting tomorrow at 0830. Hopefully, I won't have to work.

While I'm breathing a wary sigh of relief for us, my thoughts immediately went to you. If you feel you can skeddadle and need a place to go, head south, we'll leave a light on for you!

Thanks so much guys - it doesn't stop with hurricane Irene...I forgot to mention that yesterday we had 2 [small] tornadoes within 5 miles of my house (we very very rarely get tornadoes this far south in the county), a water spout/tornado hit last week, we're waiting for Irene AND to top it off our building started shaking around 2:00PM this afternoon - turned out to be a 5.9 earthquake centered in Virginia. Geez-Louise.

On a lighter note I ran over to Shoe Carnival at lunch and bought an adorable pair of blue plaid rain boots! Can't wait to wear them this weekend - they'll look fab with my official CFPUA issued safety yellow raincoat!

Jean - I might take you up on your offer - I'd LOVE an excuse to head to Florida...I am still very envious of Denise (still love her but envious). You never know when Piper and I might show up on your doorstep.

i thought I heard my name mentioned......LOL

Guest room...ready....waiting......

Not for nothing but the earthquake in VA (that everyone in NY felt) totally freaked me out! I'll take on Irene with a little more caution....LOL

SO, my MOM (aka Hurricane MaryEllen) is coming to visit on Thursday...nice, huh? All she kept saying to me before I left in between her dramatic crying was "don't go to Florida, you'll get hit with a hurricane!" And now she will be here for one. Great, just great!

On a happier note, my kids love school, I hired a cleaning lady and Joe is putting the seat on the Harley so I can go for a ride next week! HOORAY! Now, that's what I moved here for!

So far, so good here...no locusts or aliens.

Hurricane Irene has gotten stronger but the good news is that the latest model has it (eye) staying off the coast and skirting along North Carolina. Being on the coast, we're still in the "cone" so we're still preparing for at least tropical storm force winds and rain. Plus, with the cone of uncertainty, it can still move back to the left. It's a watch & wait game.

I'm just hoping I won't have to work and can get some stamping/scrapbooking time in while Joe is at work. Piper and I will ride out the storm!

Hope y'all stay safe. I always enjoyed hurricane days when I lived in FL... but that was just that I didn't have to go to school.

Hope the hurricane passes you by, Jacq, or just you get just a glancing blow. We might get a little squally weather tomorrow, but they say that should be all the effects we feel. Hopefully that will be it.

Irene still has her "eye" on us. Ba-dum-dum

It's moving a little west so we getting back into the path and may get the hurricane winds instead of the tropical storm force winds (and more rain)

Christopher was scheduled to be with us this weekend but Joe is scheduled to work and I may get called in so I talked to Joe's X (whose middle name, coincidentally is Irene) and told her we thought it would be in Chris' best interest to stay home this weekend. We'll have him the next two weekends to make up for the time.

Who's joining in VSN this weekend? I will be there provided I don't lose power, my roof, etc.

Hope you just have a nice rainy weekend, Jacq, and nothing more!

I am going out of town by myself for the first time since having Archer so I will not be playing this VSN. Hope it's awesome!

Starting to get some little showers...got to wear my cute rain boots today It's supposed to get worse later today into the night...nothing like a nightime hurricane...not only do you go insane from the constant wind and rain it's dark so you can't see anything! I can tell the pressure is dropping because I'm srtarting to get a headache which will likely last until tomorrow. As long as I got power I'll be stamping and chatting this weekend (Joe has to work). Talk to y'all later - hope to see you at the Rodeo (hope to see me at the rodeo).

If I don't see you at the Rodeo, I'll worry, but I know you'll be safe. Stay hunkered down.

Stay safe, Jacq!

I hope to join the rodeo at some point this weekend, but I have to work late tonight, and all day tomorrow starting early. I will pop in when I can, though, and try to do at least a few challenges, even if it's not til Sunday!

Yes, why is it that hurricanes always seem to hit at night? Hunker down and stay safe Jacq! You and Piper can snuggle together until Joe gets home.

Just looking for Jacq to see if she still has power. I haven't seen the latest on Irene, but I hope she's settling down.

She posted on the hostess thread, so she still has power so far.

Just checking in so y'all don't worry about me and Piper. We fared well...we had a few "brown outs" and power blips but weren't without power long; however there are quite a few people in the county that don't have power. I had just posted something on the VSN side about 8:30 last night and said I was going to eat - just then we had a brown out - my computer shut itself off so I just left it off so it didn't get fried.

Anyway - Hurricane Irene turned a little to the east and started breaking up a bit so we didn't get pounded as badly. Joe finally made it home about 10 this morning, showered, changed his clothes and went back to work. Not sure how long he'll be gone. Getting caught up with my VSN postings that I missed last night and earlier today. Hopefully I'll be able to get on track. It's still quite gusty out but nothing more than a strong rainstorm. Supposed to last for most of the day as it moves out.

Thanks for checking in Jacq! I'm glad to hear you fared well in the storm, you guys were on my mind last night! I am still at work but hope to be of in a couple of hours. I may need a nap before I actually start any VSN challenges. I had to be up early this a.m. (5:45 a.m., to be exact!) and didn't get to bed early enough last night.
Hope to see you all at the rodeo later. Yeehaw!

Hey girlies! Well, everythings back to normal. Jean and Pat - you gals cranked out some great examples...and, I see you were having fun with that new silhouette. Might have to go check that bad boy out.

How is school going so far? Christopher's first day was Thursday and he ended up being off Friday because of Irene. He'll have to make it up sometime during the year though. How's your new glass/grade Pat? How do the kids like school in Florida Denise? Were they excited to go?

Okay, I'm here. Just finished commenting in the galleries all I'm gonna do. Pretty good turnout. I had fun. I wish more people played my challenge, but life goes on. . . and it doesn't really matter in the scope of life now does it? Met some great people. Met a couple of divas, but for the most part everyone was GREAT and fun and funny.

Yes, I am enjoying my 2nd grade class. Children that age are so cute and they say the funniest things.

I was tired on Sunday and didn't get in as much commenting as I wanted to. (Homework + grocery shopping + laundry + staying up really late two nights in a row at the end of my first week of school.) It was really fun though. I thought all the challenges were fun and most of the hostesses were very nice.

So glad to hear Jacq is safe...it was a rough weekend here since my Mom was visiting from NY and we spent the whole weekend on the phone with everyone back home!

My Mom lives in the Rockaways which was supposed to get hit bad but turned out just a bit flooded. My brother is in Long Beach which got nailed and he has a lot of damage to his house (it's on the water) and my sis was fine smack dab in the center of Nassau county. My old house is ok too, my tenant just lost some plants.

Whew! I feel bad now that I made fun of Irene.....LOL

VSN looked awesome, I have been scanning the awesome cards. Sad I missed it though! Next one, I am sooo planning a party!

You can say that again sister! 1st graders do also, as Chris told his class "I'm from NY...I'm an apple but you guys are oranges!"

We were checking on our relatives in Virginia, New Jersey, and Pennsylvania as well. Only minor damage and some flooded basements, thankfully.

Yeah, I thought VSN was fun too - good turn out and lots of commenting and interaction. I even commented on all the galleries - not every single card but many for each challenge (and all that did my challenge).

We missed you D but glad to hear everyone from back home made it fairly unscathed. It's not nice to fool Mother Nature...OR MAKE FUN OF HER! I have a friend that lives in Mastic, NY - I sent her an e-mail this morning but haven't heard from her yet.

Well, I'm tired from commenting so I'm going to chill for a while. Have a great evening.

I thought you all did a great job with VSN! The challenges were lots of fun. I'm just sorry I didn't get a chance to do more of them. Having to work both days didn't leave me much time or energy for stamping this weekend.

It's another busy work week this week. I am really looking forward to the three-day weekend, even if all I do is stay home and craft. I just ordered a few new goodies from The Cat's Pajamas, a few more things from My Favorite Things, and I broke down and made my first order ever from Papertrey. I'm kind of a sucker for those $5 sets and $5 dies! So I would love to spend the weekend just playing with new stuff. We'll see how it goes!
