Having more ups and downs than a narcoleptic elevator repair man during kangaroo mating season.
Shit!Sully, I'm glad to know that the only casualty of Irene at your place was a massive tree.Chain saws can fix that.Seriously, I was worried about you, and a bunch of other blog buds on the East Coast. Everybody's trying to make out like it was "over-hype." I say not. That damn thing coulda killed you if it fell different.Glad you're okay, my friend. Really, really, grateful.
Thanks Andy.... All and all, the storm wasn't so bad. I went out to shop for food and came home to this. I think it must have been a micro-burst in the storm. Honestly, I had to knock the lawn chair over myself for the picture.... I was pretty much shocked to see that tree down and the top of the one across the street ripped off.
Sully, I'm a Louisiana boy. I've seen people get killed by falling trees...rapidly rising water...and sheer ignorance.I'm sure you were surprised to see the tree down. Storms are sneaky like that. I lived through the most powerful tornado to ever hit the US in overnight hours (up to that time) in Bossier City, LA on Dec. 3, 1978). I shall NEVER forget the images that are SEARED in my brain of the devastation left behind. I guess that...and knowing how even weak hurricanes spawn unexpected tornadoes...makes me "jumpy."Again...very glad y'all are safe and sound. Seriously.
