Wendy Eagan and her family continue to cope with the effects of a cosmic disaster that is continuing to unleash its effects on planet Earth.

Image of sunshine through trees (c) 2011, by Karla Dorman.

August already, and yet it feels more like October.  In just a few days we went from summertime  heat to highs in the middle seventies and temperatures dipping into the 30's and even twenties at night.  In fact, the weatherman is calling for even colder temps (and SNOW by this weekend) if this chilly pattern holds up.

No more tornadoes have hit, thank goodness, but we face the possibility of a colder than normal winter; in fact, they are saying it could be the coldest winter EVER for a good part of the United States.  

I hope the tornado season has passed.  It has been a deadly one.  People killed not even five miles from where we live, and that's not counting the disasters that hit New Orleans, Louisiana, or Nashville, Tennessee; people are still trying to pick up the pieces and it's probably gonna take years to rebuild both cities to their former glory.

There's a new threat: radiational poisoning from the sun: even if out for less than fifteen minutes, a person runs the risk of getting severely burned (sunburned) or getting skin cancer.  Also disease: there's speculated reports of cholera, dysentry, the bubonic plague, and even smallpox being reported along the Eastern and Western coasts of the United States.  We are being advised to stay indoors as much as possible to limit exposure to the weather or disease.

The power is still acting weird: one never knows when it is going to go off ...


Like it just did when I left off here.  We were "in the dark" for over two hours; it's now 6:31 here.  The power went out at 3:45 this afternoon.  More food had to be thrown out because it got spoiled (mainly the butter, cheese, and milk, which means we will have to go to the store somehow in a day or two ... and then WE run the risk of getting arrested for venturing out, but what's a preson to do? Starve to death??  Or start eating each other like a pack of zombies??).

More auroras are forecasted tonight.  Tonight's weather is supposed to be clear and cold, with temperatures in the lower 30's to near 40 degrees.  We've been under aurora watches and warnings for the past few weeks, and while they are pretty to see in the skies, they sure play havoc with communications equipment, the Internet, and radio signals!  Our phone and computer (as well as our tv) hasn't worked well since the auroras started!

This is one reason why my journal entries have been so intermittent because you neve know when it's gonna go +Pfffft!!"

While the power is on, I might as well zap a microwave bowl of spaghetti and meatballs; I'm hungry all of a sudden!  Maybe we can even manage to get some tv in as well, provided the stupid power behaves itself ... I will write in here again soon; until later, this is Wendy Eagan saying so long!  Take care!

There's only one place to get good news and that is from the Bible. It is so sad to hear of so much happening in the world. Great Write Karen.
