I was sitting in my room, working on this until I was interrupted by an earth-shattering kaboom. It's a familiar sound this year, as trees have been falling around our property constantly. I looked outside to see if it was the stuck tree my dad and I were trying to get down last weekend, but no such luck.

Looking in the back yard, I found it was *two* trees. Big ones. They had been bent slightly by hurricane Ernesto, and the recent rainstorms must have been the last straw. They both fell, creating a nice little domino effect of smaller trees. Fortunately, they fell the right way and didn't damage anything but other trees. Even the bamboo I transplanted last weekend was still standing. So there's a bit of excitement for the middle of the day.

I have to mention that The Colbert Report has been on a roll recently. The surprise entry in the green screen contest, Woz outnerding Colbert, Richard Dawkins, even the governor of Montana had an entertaining interview. I had stopped watching this show after the episodes were piling up on mythtv, but I am glad I started again.

This is why one watches tv when its on tv, then it can't pile up. You see it or you don't :P



AHHHH. omg I didn't hear this, but a huuuuuuuuge branch next to my house fell, and inbetween the lil black metla pole holding up the hummingbird feeder, and like, a plant hanging from the dogwood. it's like they know. What happened up here during Ernesto? I was busy in Georgia, enjoying the sunshine and dorks :D

Ernesto was just a huge windy rainy mess, not as bad for us as the last hurricane. We only had one whole tree come down (not counting the one that got stuck)... though it landed on my dad's car.

ouch, well, yeah, everything is better than Floyd. My house was very much on an island. silly little Brandywine Creek, it flooded all the bridges.

Sounds like it was fun. Was Peco having a blast aswell?

Yeah, but nothing like the one before it. They got power restored during the night, none of this multi-day crap.
