CASology #118


Welcome to Week 118 of CASology!  Take a look at the cue word for this week:



This week's cue word seems very appropriate as today I am grateful that my home is safe and undamaged. Last week Bermuda was hit by two storms within 6 days.  Tropical Storm Fay hit us on Sunday followed by Hurricane Gonzalo on Friday.  TS Fay ended up being a blessing in disguise.  It caused a lot of damage but it also cleared out a lot of trees which greatly lessened the impact of Gonzalo.  My family has been so very lucky.  While we lost a lot of trees and had damage to our waterfront our house is fine and so are we.  A lot of people lost roofs and some people haven't had power since Fay hit.  We got power back quite quickly although internet and cell services have been erratic.  


This pile of branches and foliage from TS Fay was only the beginning...


I wasn't sure I'd get to play along this week as we've had a long slog of cleaning up but I managed to get into the Craft Cave for a bit yesterday afternoon.  It felt so good to get inky again and our internet came back over night just in time for me to post.  It's not my best card ever but I'm grateful to be able to make one at all.  Be sure to head over to the CASology page and check out the gorgeous designs from the rest of the design team and then play along!
