Storm.....No Power.....No Water

Remember all of that beautiful snow we had on Monday:

It inspired me to do some Snow Dyeing on Tuesday...

A storm moved in Tuesday....late afternoon...

The front yard went from this snow....

To this..... in just a few hours.

Between the down pour of rain and the snow run-off:

The river swelled up over its banks and covered the gravel road I live on.

It wasn't long before we lost power....and water

Trees were washed away down river, along with part of the pasture fence.

Mud slides blocked the gravel roads and parts of the road caved off into the river.

So....not being able to rinse out my snow dyed fabric wasn't such a big deal.
It sat for 48 hours batching and waiting patiently for power and water.

The power is back on....and so is the water.

Once I get the house back in order I will get busy with the snow dyes.

More to come.....

Bummer to lose power and water! Glad you're back up and running.

Just hand them on the line and let the rain rinse them! I do that with my fabrics when a good downpour coincides with my dye session. I hope you have your power back soon!
