Am way too tired to write. Was so tired I pulled off on a dirt road and slept on the bike for half an hour.
There's too much to say about the last three days and the words are just not coming to me right now ... maybe tomorrow.
I'm currently in Jasper on my way to Calgary to get new tires and an oil change on the bike before I head to the Thunder Bay area.
Too many things pointed to Calgary, so I'm heading there instead of Edmonton.
I have incredible friends. A huge storm blew through College Park and one of my large oaks was toppled. As it fell, it destroyed a telephone pole and knocked down power and communication lines.
The generator kicked in keeping the whole operation going for a few hours but eventually something happened and the network was unreachable for several hours.
In addition to knocking down trees, large sections of my fence have been blown over.
Lance and others today did what they could to fix the fence for me and deal with the other issues.
I have extremely good friends ... they watch out for me.
Yermo! Susan here. Beautiful countryside. I particularly enjoyed the photo of you preparing to swim in the lake with your full leathers doubling as a swim suit. ....As well as photos of you and Ian from a few weeks ago...
While you have been away we indeed experienced the first ever "tornado warning" for "southeastern Montgomery County" which sent me huddling in the bathroom for 15 minutes... as well as our first earthquake which had me texting Mimi at 5 am and reaching for some proper pants to put on as what else does one do to react to such a thing? Not to mention day upon day of 100 degree weather. Unsettling indeed. Perhaps these acts of mother nature are NOT directed at you as we have long suspected! Then again, there is the felled tree in your yard. Hm.
While you are away, watch out for the chupacabra; the creature is on the increase. Also note this story about aliens targeting this poor man with meteorites and take heed:
