What were you blogging about last year at this time? How have things changed?
A year ago (September 12th to be exact) I posted about the snow that ruined September and all the trees. It wasn’t an elaborate post and I don’t know why I didn’t write more about it. hmph
I was probably like . . . zzzzzzzzz Wake me up when September ends. This year I’m eager to write more about it AND we have hardly had any snow yet *crossing fingers* It’s getting colder though wah.
Anyway, last year a huge snowstorm had ruined all the trees and caused electricity to go out . I remember going on a walk and seeing broken tree branches all over the place. It was awful. I imagine the birds got disturbed big time. The snowstorm caused problems with power lines as tree branches fell on them (sometimes whole trees) breaking lines all over the city. My own apartment building was out of electricity for a good half a day. Since their was nothing to do at home with no power, I went to Westbrook Mall just across the street from my place to see if anyone else was experiencing the same thing and I found the only place that was open was Starbucks. Thank &*^%’in God.
I sat inside Starbucks in the Westbrook Mall and had a conversation with someone I didn’t know and ordered a peppermint latte. By the time we left, the power was back on in the mall. Work crews must’ve fixed the problem cause my electricity was back on too at least in our neighborhood. The city was busy for a week cleaning up the trees. I felt sorry for them. The trees I mean.
