Well, that weekend flew by. Sheesh.
I try to get at least one snip done in a weekend. That seems so wrong since I can make time for so many other less satisfying things. Something I love as much as snipping, I seem to barely squeeze in.
I'm going to play with the idea of architecture this week. This snip was supposed to be the facade of a building, though it mostly reminds me of an altar at a funeral parlor.
That was a first attempt. A learning experience. Which reminds me, I haven't quite caught hold of the idea that I need to change the blade on the X=acto knife more often than I do. When I go to make a delicate slice, and a big chunk of the design rips off, that's not good.
Since the rain from Tropical Storm Hanna kept us inside, I spent most of yesterday playing on the MacBook. When a school friend posted on Twitter that the creek behind her house was flooding, it reminded me to go check the one in front of my house.
Lord have mercy. This first photo was taken an hour after the 5 1/2" of rain fell. The trails were mostly submerged and I could only walk in about a tenth of a mile before it became impassable.
Mark says that the flood gauges on the internet say that the water over there went from 2 feet deep to 13 feet deep during the storm.
The second photo was taken tonight. 24 hours later. Amazing. Aside from the mud, some downed limbs, and a lot of dead fish on the trail, there didn't seem to be a lot of damage.
Today was phenominally gorgeous. Mark and I got in 55 miles on the W&OD Trail...along with all the hoardes of other folks who were housebound yesterday.
We did manage to narfle some garthoks, so the day was a good one.
