What to do

If you haven’t done so already, go read Margene’s post.  I’ll wait.

I’ve donated to both the Red Cross and Best Friends.  I’m also checking on Red Cross training classes in my area.  The volunteer effort for this disaster is massive, they will need reinforcements.  I know they are accepting and training new volunteers at Pease in New Hampshire on Saturday (call 603-766-5440 to sign up) and I caught a blurb on the news last night about a class in Waltham, MA. 

The Red Cross website is flooded this morning (no pun intended) so I can’t get through to post links to the various chapters and their volunteer activities.  If you have trouble donating through the website, you can phone in your donation at 1-800-HELP-NOW. 

Sock knitting continues.  I turned the heel on sock #2 last night and am progressing down the foot.  No picture, just add a lime green heel to the previous photo.

Hope you and all your loved ones are safe.  Give them an extra hug this weekend.
