First the tornado ... then the earthquake ... then the hurricane ... now flooding! Enough already! I'm not sure if fire is next, or hordes of locusts.
The Patapsco River, normally no more than a few inches deep, is now -- thanks to Hurricane Irene and Tropical Storm Lee -- really, really, out of control. Here's a link to some pictures, courtesy of the Catonsville Patch. I don't live in Catonsville, but I live in a neighborhood adjacent to the Patapsco River. I'm safe at home, high up on a hill.

In the interest of fairness, my two close friends here in the Baltimore region will be excluded from the drawing -- sorry! -- but if they're seriously miffed, I'll knit them a pair of footie sock slipper things, too.
Happy Fiber Arts Friday! Hopefully next time I post, it will be dry and sunny and not all apocalyptically flooded or shaken or blown or whirled.
