STORMAGEDDON UPDATE

Power running out.

Ammo supplies low.

THE DRUMS! THE DRUMS!


Of course, what I mean is that we're doing fine, thanks to all those that have asked. The worst of the storm is just about upon us, and so far it doesn't seem any worse than other hurricanes/tropical storms that have come through the area. Bob in 1991 and Gloria in 1986 were worse IMHO, hitting us in August and September respectively when the temps were warmer.

Of course, now that I've said this we'll probably get walloped and lose power for three days. The kids' school was canceled in anticipation of high winds and power outages. Personally, I think it was a poor call given the track record of ZOMG HURRICANES this far north - especially since Sandy's track has always been well south of us (we're extreme north shore). Given that one of the towns in our district loses power if you sneeze real hard, though, I can understand being closed down.


And we have a caption contest! From the local news station comes this photo out of CT:




Keep your fingers crossed and keep those in other, harder-hit areas in your thoughts and prayers everyone. Thanks.

That is all.

"The Trampoline mount is still challenging from a springboard, even with the apparatus tipped to encourage lower entry angles."

Yeah, it's wordy. I'll work on it.

Peter: I know we shouldn't have let Dad try to put it together by himself...
Jason: Wow! That even beat's Denise's slingshot!

High powered trampolines are generally considered far more dangerous. Do Not Try This at Home.

Let's have a follow up with the trampoline's owner and his insurance company. I think the power company will go after him, goodbye homeowner's policy.

Mitt Romney's campaign denies any involvement in the plan to electrocute children but WDEM5 does not believe him.
