Last weekend was pretty big. Friday was my brother Ben's wedding rehersal, Saturday was the wedding, Sunday was my other brother Jon's birthday!
I was a groomsman for the wedding, a nice easy job. Which was good for me since the last wedding I went to I think I was about 3 years old. Lots of people were there, there was a huge reception, tons of alcohol was flowing. And my brother is now married, with the ring and everything. Crazy!
I slept in until 3:30 on Sunday. That night, our family took Jon out for Japanese food for his birthday. There were some impressive thunderstorms, but we managed to avoid getting rained on. Then on the trip back home, several trees were down on the road. A few miles from home, nobody had electricity. And at home, a fallen tree was blocking the driveway!
That kind of deflated the general sense of happiness, as we chainsawed and moved enough debris out of the way to get the cars back in... to enjoy our house with no power or water for the rest of the night. Luckily, PECO managed to restore power in ~6 or 7 hours.
Yesterday, Jon and I finished clearing the driveway. We were actually pretty lucky, the tree didn't cause any damage on the way down. Also, an interesting fact: I had never used a chainsaw until yesterday. I only wish I could have seen the maniacal grin on my own face when I first revved it! >:D
And now there's more thunder outside.
