|First we drove through fog|
|Then there was rain and wind and many uprooted trees|
|Too dark for photos and shopping|
The weather was intense this year which made driving a bit more of a challenge. We had fog in the morning, pouring down rain in the afternoon, followed by a terrible wind storm.
The storm resulted in many power outages, and one of our favourite stores called Cobwebs and Caviar in Shelburne had no hydro.
How can we shop in the dark? Not to be deterred by darkness, we got out our cell phones and used the torch/flashlight to see what we could.
It was so sad for the store to be in total darkness when it was such a busy event for them.
And even in the darkness, I found this wonderful sign.
Of course we did manage to find quite a few items with which to cheer ourselves up. I collected some fabrics to use for a quiltalong with Jacquelynne Steves that will be coming up in the summer. And I topped up my consumable supplies like Best Press Spray, batting, and needles.
I'm so happy to be spending time in my sewing room today... it's been a long week with not enough sewing to keep me balanced. Today I'll remedy that! Happy Sewing Saturday!
