Day 235: Duckweed and Crapola
Tuesday, August 23, 2011
Not necessarily in that order.
I spent half of today thinking it was the weekend. Dunno if I thought it was last weekend and I just haven't caught up yet, or if I'm jumping the gun to next weekend. Weird.
First, I meant to take a couple of pictures of the pool. Did I remember? Did I he!!. I'll look thru some on here and see if I have any, but I don't think I do. It's not completely cleared yet, but very nearly. Of course, any bits / spores left behind will cause it to come right back, and rather than let that happen for the sake of a pseudo-'before' picture, I think we'll work on getting rid of the last of it and I'll just do an 'after' picture. You can use your imaginations to fill in the green, lol...
Second, we're thinking about not putting the house back on till spring. In one way, I hate to wait, but in another, it might give the economy (and the housing market) a chance to rebound a little. I figure it can't hurt. It won't get worse. Ha ha.
Third, you East Coasters: wow, earthquake! Glad I wasn't there, but if you needed some excitement to your day, I bet that added it. The only one I was ever in (that I was aware of) was around '84, in central Maryland (dunno where that epicenter was). The house shook but mostly there was a loud boom, almost like an explosion. I doubt it was anything like 5.+ tho.
And I think that's it. I'm down to the wire - it's 10:58 GMT.
Goodnight, Sparklers, wherever you are!
