My thoughts are with those further north of Maryland (and south in VA, too) who are dealing with a much worse situation than power outages, though no power makes things even harder. Houses and towns destroyed or seriously damaged, limited access by road, the list goes on. I just don't even know what to say about what they are going through up there.
Our power was back by the time I got home last night but we ate out anyway. I knitted a few Rock Island edging repeats and turned out the lights at 9:30. At 10 PM the phone rang. That's usually not a good sign, but in this case it was a friend from Colorado touching base. I think it's been 5 years or more since we've spoken with him. It was good to talk with him, though I feel really old now. He started having children much later than Bob and I but 2 of his are in college and the youngest, twins, are seniors in high school. Oh, my. I can remember, on a trip back to Colorado from Texas to visit, holding his first born infant. I think my kids were 5 and 8 at the time, so I really enjoyed cuddling a baby, especially one I could give back when it got cranky. ; )
I spent about 20 minutes spinning my lace weight from the Grafton batt when I got home yesterday. I am still entranced with it and find my self very happy to take my time and get it right. I hope to have time to post photos today or tomorrow if the power stays on.
