Electricity is one of those things I do NOT like to do without, so you can imagine how unhappy I was last week after a windstorm did in our electricity and internet. The wind brought down a tree which landed on the electric and cable lines which in turn snapped the power pole in two, which then ripped the electric line out of the house leaving us with a live power line hanging in the yard and a big ole transformer in the neighbor’s yard. It took a few days to get every thing back on-line. The power guys and tree trimmers worked hard through the night. Trees had to be removed and trimmed to get the broken pole out and a hole dug for the pole. By Morning and about 18 hour later this was the view.
I want to put out a BIG thank you to the tree guys who were swinging through the trees all night long with chainsaws! Those dare devils were amazing! We couldn’t see much of them in the dark, just their head lamps bobbing up and down. It was an entertaining light show for us in the wee hours of the morning, but I am sure it was hard work for them.
I also want to thank all our customers at New Hue Handspuns that were so understanding while our electricity and internet was out. We are still having some problems with our internet connection. I’ve been disconnected several times while in the middle of a post, or email, which has put me behind a little, but hopefully it will all be taken care of soon! Just to be on the safe side I am going to cut this post short, get it posted before my connection fails, and leave you with the promise of a post in the very very near future. I have been busy with dyeing, spinning, and knitting, and I can’t wait to show it off!!!
Until next time, Happy Knitting and Spinning,
