Ike and Other Interuptions

If it’s not one thing, its another.  How nuts is all this damage from hurricane Ike?  My fellow Ohioans will back me up on how horrible those winds were.  Down here in our valley, all we lost were tree branchs and internet connections.  The cities didn’t fare so well, out of power for a week.  That seems incomprehensible to me in this day and time.  Why should it take a week to repair power lines?  Why are there still power lines in the air when we have the ability to bury them?  I’m much more interested in visiting with you today than writing, but look at what those winds did:

    I am glad your house is still intact and you still have food, water and electricity. When 18 power poles went down here last winter in a high wind storm, people were three days without electricity — and they put the power poles right back up in the air. OC says there are just some places where digging isn’t feasible — like on an island made of solid rock.

    Quilly – We’re acres of clay, so OC is probably right. I guess it isn’t cost effective.

    Welcome back!

    The wind missed us completely but it is unseasonably cool.

    AV – Yes, finally! First a broken computer (lightening) and most recently no internet. I missed all of you too.

    Hammer – Thanks! I’m glad you were saved from these crazy winds.

    Kat, great to hear from you again and all the news of whats been happening. My old computer packed in too, in fact with a bit of help from me as I was “fixing” it!!! As it was old I didnt bother repairing but got a new Dell.
    You have been busy withe the garden and by the look on the pictures was great fun for all.
    At least you are brown if any one is brown here its due to rust, as we have had one of the wettest summers ever.
    Look forward to reading more. Take care. Dave

The free-lance writer is the person who is paid per piece or per word or perhaps. (Robert Benchley)

Welcome to My Neighborhood!

Shortly after I learned to use a spoon, I learned to use a pencil. Crippled by shyness as a child, I found that the things I couldn't say out loud, I could say with a pen, and then a typewriter. The shyness was overcome with education and age...but the need to write has never left me.
