« Part 858: Choosing the Next Direction Part 859 of My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer series Part 860: Weathering the Storm »

Even though we don’t have TV, it is hard to get away from the talk of the impending storm that is heading up the east coast today. While we are not in its direct path, being on the west side of Nova Scotia leaves us in an area of concern and we are preparing for its arrival.

I want to thank everyone who has emailed me and sent messages, checking in to see how we are doing. While I don’t anticipate any big trouble, living in a rural area we may experience a gap in communication for a bit as the remnants of Sandy pass through.

While I don’t believe we are in any immediate danger, it is always good to be prepared and we have done what we we see as necessary to be ready. We are located a couple of kilometers from the coast, and are up high enough from the riverbed that flooding is of little concern. But we will be cautious.

With that said, I will keep things short here. I spent yesterday working on some new patterns and I should hopefully have some good things to show you this week.

Have a good Monday everyone. For those of you in the storms path – stay safe and check in when you have a chance.

Happy Monday! :)

Thanks to everyone. We did fine. It is a bit of wind and rain here, but nothing severe. The storm moved inland and our area is pretty far on the outskirts and there has been no severe weather here that I know of. My heart goes out to those who are in the path of the storm, and I hope that all are safe.
