I’m a Lucky Bastard

We had some storms roll through.   At work they seemed to be pretty mild, but when I got home, it looked as if someone dropped a bomb on my neighborhood.  I had to dodge a few down trees.  My blog was down earlier, and this is why.  Our power went out briefly.  It looks like I have a limb down on the house:

One of those lines holding up part of the branch is my FiOS cable which supplies internet for the blog.  Hopefully the rest of the branch will not come down in the mean time, or I’ll be seeing ya all for a bit.

Considering my neighbor’s house looks like it had a tree struck by lightning, and the people up the street had a tree come down on the power lines, snapping the pole, cutting out power for that part of the neighborhood, and closing the street.  I’m pretty lucky to have gotten away with a minor branch down on the roof that almost, but not quite took out power, internet, or cable.

I suspect power or internet could be going out any minute, really.  If it’s looking like a prolonged outage, I’ll move the blog to Jason’s server for the time being.

    Aww… my moss garden was doing so well too ;)

    Seriously, you speak the truth. I just don’t want to shell out the bucks just yet. Of course, I also don’t want to have to redo drywall on the ceiling either.
