Anybody Have a House In Nebraska They Want to Sell?

Mambocat apologizes if she is mostly absent for the next few days. Tropical Storm Ernesto is threatening to strengthen into a hurricane, and if it crosses into the Gulf of Mexico ... well ... the Gulf is so hot right now that it's the meteorological equivalent of bat guano as hurricane fertilizer.

So Mambocat has been alerted to her animal-rescue-planning duties by the emergency management folks here in Louisiana.

Keep your fingers crossed for everyone in the Gulf region. New Orleans and the Mississippi Gulf Coast in particular can't take being kicked while they're down.

Hopefully Ernesto will fizzle out, and I'll be back pronto, but the computer models do not look encouraging.

Off to meetings.

Knit on, through all crises ....

Good luck to you, Dez. I doubt that any of us could take another hit right now, though I would feel a certain smug satisfaction to see some of those thousands of reporters that are in town for the anniversary got a little wet and blown about.
I Think (hope with all my might) Ernesto is turning away.

Hope you and all stay safe, sound and DRY. But meanwhile, have you ever read "The Children's Blizzard" by (David?) Laskin?

Love your blog and thanks for being the DEZignated pinch hitter for Joan, too. Your little pattern booklet from years ago is one of my favorites, btw.
