Here in Cocoa Beach, we’ll be getting another yearly dose of Hurricane Hunkerin’ with the next storm in line, Irma. Since I got a small shoulder injury while surfing on Friday, that puts me out of the lineup for any potential swell. Probably not a bad thing, since the current tracks aren’t conducive to a clean hurricane swell. For our area, at least.
So, I’ll be watching Irma (and the one behind, yikes), and I’ll be beading in the meantime. I thought I’d make a little beaded bracelet pattern that can be whipped up fast and easy. Feel free to download the pattern, but if you do, make little a donation to RedCross.org please. The Red Cross helps many people year round all the time with their services, and they need extra support during large crises, like Harvey and Irma. Honor System, People!
My little design is based on Coastal Warning Signal Flags (NOAA Link). The Hurricane Warning flag is typically two red flags with a black square in them:
So, if you decide not to evacuate, this can be a fun craft to do while it pours rain.
But, let’s be safe and make sure you have everything ready- there’s even a website for that too.
Everyone take care with this one- the Bermuda High looks like it’s not going to back down. Might be time to tuck-n-roll, since this looks like a closeout.
