We'd been having nice, cooler weather for a little while so on Saturday it was a little disappointing to feel heavy humidity in the air again. Even the crochet group was questioning when we might actually see winter.
That afternoon I noticed that the light inside changed drastically and looked outside to see this.
I even posted to Instagram that it was an unusual cloud formation, not what we typically see.
My husband read the weather report that said a chance of rain at 6 p.m.
There was thunder and lightning but what we really got was a very fast moving sand storm. These types of storms don't happen often, but when they do, they are like little mini tornadoes that sweep through and then are gone within 30 minutes.
The first day of gardening and kids arts and crafts had taken place at the garden from 3-6 and unfortunately some of them got caught up in the storm with no place to hide.
When I stopped there the next morning, there was lots of garbage, downed branches and craft supplies strewn all over the place. I was able to get one section of the garden mostly cleaned up and picked up all of the craft stuff before heading off to a meeting.
The branch there in the bottom right fell where two of the girls had been crouching for protection. Fortunately, it didn't crack and break while they were there. You can see also that it's a branch that had some of our yarnbombing on it.
The branch is gone, but the yarnbombing is still there. I couldn't pull it down and didn't have scissors to cut it down. Proof that whoever took the other 4 pieces had done so with purpose and intention.
What's really crazy is that some of the wind chimes the kids made that day were still hanging despite the storm.
Thankfully the garden was quickly cleaned up and everything is back in order again.
I've been lax in yarnbomb planning as I've been working on another big project that I'll tell you about another time.
Have a terrific Tuesday!
