Dodged That Bullet

Well, Isaac moved west and couldn't get his act together, so we're getting rain and a little wind, plus surge as expected on the Causeway, but no power outage or flooding here in town - woot! And since schools and offices are closed for 2 days, that means more time for knitting. Thank goodness Joann was open yesterday (God bless you ladies for having to work all day yesterday). I picked up 4 skeins of yarn and started on a "slim shrug" for my first more complex project. Oh, and here's the finished scarf:

This is officially for Lucas, who claimed ownership about halfway through.

And my laugh of the day came from The Weather Channel, where Jim Cantore and Al Roker held onto each other and BACKED across an intersection in New Orleans to demonstrate the high winds. Then Roker says, "Somebody's cooking bacon. We're getting the smell of bacon at 80 miles an hour." (When you can't drum up some drama, go for comedy.)

And here's a little humor Drew found:

Robbie, I bet you got some water in your yard like we did, but I hope your house is fine!

Love the never forget sign but it has the wrong date on it! Cute scarf though - I am very impressed.

Didn't catch the date! Next Christmas, everybody gets an Auburn scarf...

Here's Vic as shown on Channel 42 in Birmingham on Wednesday evening. He's about halfway through.

Mary - it seems to be a theme with this storm, huh?

Robbie - Vic's a STAR - great interview! How'd he snag that spot? Adds a little excitement to the boredom of staying in a hotel, I bet. They did a better job of covering Foley than the local news here! And that couple was eating at Fish River Grill, weren't they?
