Talk about internet withdrawels.. 7 Days of no power and actually camping in my own home. Yes camping, in my own house. I did have an Onan 6500w GENERATOR but it is still kinda primitave.. The power and the net came on about an hour ago. My big tree in the back yard took the bullit. My neighbourhood is so old that the power lines are not grounded, thus the 2 hole plugs in the house.. Well when the wind tore the limb over and it touched the top line on the poles, that was it.. It fried that tree, it was the ground for the whole hood. 150 ft tall and now dead. A real shame and its gunna be costly to remove it. I had some roof damage and it blew the gable off the west side of the house but we are still here..

HEY I'M BACK

Ive had net service for about 20 minutes.. but the okra took a real beaten..

it was literally on the ground and looked dead.. BUT, i stood it up when the storm passed and braced it with my stake out stick.. It is a most resilliant plant, pics soon of life after death. SIMPLY AMAZING!!!!

Looks like they need a lil water. But then, I don't suppose you have a lot of water to go around. And the rule is ... the drier it is, the hotter the peppers. You should be a happy crapper now.

JQ, I guess your weather buddy friend was wrong about the storm turning north, huh?
they should probably get a refund for this year's service as well.

Glad to hear you came out of the storm OK!!
