I should read one of my 50 unfinished kindle books. I put over the air tv on for my mom using my old Star Trek antenna. ‬

John (Nevets) Nevets (nevets) | 1603 comments A year ago we had a bad storm come through and knock out power for most of a week (some had it well over a week). I don't have great cell service at my home, so I could get some text's out, but not much else. While I did have some devices charged up, I didn't know at the beginning how long this was going to be, so I started rereading some dead tree books I have, and graphic novels. Had forgotten how much fun that could be to read by flashlight.

Hope all is back to normal for you soon Tamahome.

Dude! how did you not take that down before the storm, it was a very fragile piece of art. And while I think the hummingbirds appreciated you trying to keep them dry, as well as cool, I have a feeling they were hunkering down during the storm. ;-)

I didn’t know the storm was coming! It was sunny and 77 right before it hit. The umbrella is write-off. Oh well.

Right before the storm (music!): https://www.instagram.com/p/CDedd6lBx...

Good one. (There’s a dopamine hit for you.)
