I have been away from the blog due to a studio re-model (there will be pics) and plenty of new art . . . the muse has not been asleep at the wheel but the studio was in sad shape but it's beautiful now and just waiting to get the final odds and ends back in and all pulled together.
I just wanted to give a quick update to let everyone know that we're all fine after the dramatic weather over the last couple of days. It was a little scary last night on the commute home. The train doors opened at one stop to the sounds of the tornado sirens but that didn't stop our little commuter train that could from chugging on northward... into even further gusts and rain. By the time I got to my car, two blocks away from the train stop, I was more soaked than I had been in my life. The drive home was terrifying and you couldn't see more than a couple feet in front of you, at one point I did just stop in the road and wait until I could see (I felt better that the truck in front of me did too). I did make it home where the husband and I huddled in with the puppies to stay warm and watch reality TV.
OH... the back fence did fall down causing Maya the Akita to sprint off into the rain, thrilled that she could finally frolic with the neighboring puppies, she was promptly wrangled and chastised and wrangled (but she was really cute). Rolland kept trying to get the fence up and but by the time he got to the neighbors to get access to their yard, the neighbor guy had proceeded to mend. We went back to reality TV and ignored the rain... until this morning, when we discovered there was no pilot light for the water heater. OY... cold shower done and a call to the plumber has been put in. I'll keep you posted.
Hope you guys are all good and stayed safe and at least fairly dry!
