Two more chairs and why I'm home early
Here are the other two chairs. Summer Squash and Moss Green. I love the pink and blue, I'm getting used to the yellow and green. They will do for this summer anyway, then I will decide next summer if they have grown on me enough to leave them alone (I'm sure they will!)
Now - for why I'm home early on a Tuesday. I was just working away this afternoon when the lights went out. I went outside to see if everyone else on the block was out too or if it was just us, but yes, they were out too. Just about the time I got outside, the power came back on so I went back in, pushed the button to start the computer again and was on my way to turn on the other computer when the power went out again. So, back out the front door I went and this is what I saw
All of downtown is without power. Some people were saying it was a transformer and a few others said it was the substation but either way, it looks like it is going to take a bit for the power to come back on so we locked up and came home. For one thing, we can't do anything without power - and it is pretty dang dark in there w/o lights and for another - w/o air conditioning it gets pretty hot pretty fast! No sense in sitting around in the dark sweating when there is nothing we could do! I did call home to make sure my power was on before I headed this way! Maybe I can get a few things done so I can actually sit down and stitch before 9:00 tonight!
