7.27 Spinning results
The merino/firestar is all plied up. I'll measure yardage when it finishes drying. With all the humidity in the air right now, that may take a while, although I put the skein through the salad spinner to help.
The thunderstorms on Saturday brought tornadoes to the area. I had just answered the phone when K called from MD when J walked in the door on his way back from Big Rockets and said: There was just an emergency broadcast announcement - tornado watch. Go take a look at the radar.
My conversation with K went sort of like this: Hi, sweetie, how's... Oops just a minute...I'll call you back later, bye!
There were two tornadoes, one in the town north of us and one to the west 30 miles away, the first in 25+ years. Fortunately, it seems to have been property damage only, no injuries. Hard enough on the people involved, but it could have been worse.
The radio announcers today (on all stations I've listened to) all are giving the weather report something like this: Monday, blah blah, Tuesday blah blah, Wednesday - Thunderstorms! but no tornadoes forecast at this time!!
