the picture is of the tree to the left and how close it came to my camper, crushing my bike, tearing down my awning & flattening my picnic table...AND SCARING THE SHIT OF ME!!!

Gone since last Friday nights storm,

Still no power now but got computer & TV,

Have a loaned generator from a friend,

OH MY GOD, this week has been the living end…


A 50 foot pine tree just missed the camper,

Took down my awning, so no longer do I have that,

Can’t imagine how felt the dogs & cats,

Never saw lightening or heard thunder, ever, like that…


Withdraw symptoms from my computer addiction,

Are running rampant through my mind & this ain’t fiction,

So as or if the power ever comes back up,

Then more will be written in explanation…

It looks like your luck isn't all bad. But I'm sure you'll miss the bike and the awning. at least you got your addiction partly back!

From what I hear, next your beloved sea will rise a few feet and your trailer will be on the seashore!

Just happy it didn't take you out. Perhaps this is a good time for meditation? There won't be anything electrical that will interrupt you :-)

OMG! Thank goodness it didn't hit your place, Ed!!! Must be a real nightmare...especially being without electricity for a whole week!!! Stay safe, my friend....

Heavens Ed! It is a blessing in itself that you are ok! I am grateful you escaped what happened! If all that was damaged was what was shown in this picture you have been watched over.

Yes, scary times... take care and keep us afloat on what's going on.

Love and Light

I can damn well relate, Ed. The last two hurricanes that came through here left me without electricity for two weeks in August, hottest month of the year, and I didn't have a generator. Hope you get back to normal soon.

You are just so damn real! You've got "this thing" about you between eloquent and primitive! I find your works intriguing! Thank you.

Love ya!
