|I had to move the felted flower, I kept finding it in Victoria's teeth...|
Hmmm... try to explain that title to someone who didn't read this blog yesterday? I could only keep down chicken soup, you see. However, I'm feeling much better, just a tad bit queasy today. Manuela and I must have had the same bug, even though many states and the Mason-Dixon line separate our houses. ;)
I have been watching the news and how the full extent of the devastation in the areas where the hurricane made landfall is becoming known. The anger that is building because the government is not there to help doesn't surprise me at all. You would think our country learned that lesson with Katrina.
I caught part of an interview with an official the day the hurricane became a Superstorm. I think he was from FEMA. He was saying that these 100 Year and 500 year storms are now happening somewhere in this country every year.
Those comments didn't take into account the drought this summer that destroyed crops that started out so well in the spring... not to mention my garden!
In my state, it was first said to be as bad as the drought in the 1980s, then the dust bowl of the 1940s, then finally they said parts of the state were worse than they had been in over one hundred years of record keeping (there is that number again).
I want to help in my own small ways by continuing my Saturday Pantry Posts and expanding them even more with more information and links for those who want to deepen their pantries even more. The archives for Saturday Pantry Posts start... here.
Has anyone watched Revolution? I'm not completely sure what I think of it, yet... very gritty and hard to watch at times (but perhaps realistic?). It's unsettling to have it start in my part of the country. Even a White Sox fan doesn't like seeing the lights go out at Wrigley Field (where the Cubs play). ;)
