Last Monday, August 10, a storm called a derecho moved through central Iowa hitting the southeast areas hard! All we got was needed rain which we were so thankful for but it sounds terrible about 150 miles southeast of us. Honestly, our news talked about Marshalltown but not much more so we had been unaware of the widespread power outages and the damages. Kayla has been without power and internet for several days and I kept wondering why she didn’t respond to my emails. Now I know. I had no idea until I read her mom’s post about taking the generators to her son and other relatives. And the many cars lined up at the gas stations was shocking as well. Read Jo’s Blog post here.
I’ve been busy preparing music for a funeral tomorrow of a beloved church member – she was my sponsor 40 years ago when I joined my church. Margaret and I have practiced many hours getting it perfect and lasting exactly 30 minutes. Quite stressful.
I’ll close with the Dirty Dozen quilts up to the present and then I’m hitting the lawnmower.
Please let me know if your quilt hasn’t posted – you may have to resend to me.
