Whew! You may have heard about the derecho that hit the eastern part of the country.
Don't know what a derecho is? Neither did I until we got hit by one.
A derecho is basically a "land hurricane" -- a very bad windstorm that covers hundreds of miles, and leaves a path of destruction in its wake. No, I'd never heard of it, either. Click here if you're dying to learn more about it.
Well, that damn derecho did a number on DC and its environs. We were fortunate in that we didn't lose power ourselves, so we had air conditioning (thank goodness!), but we were without internet and phones for way too long.
No interwebz? Ugh! The horror!
Not all of our extended family was as lucky, so we've had refugees from the storm. Actually, it turned into kind of a house party, which was fun.
Anyhow, that's my excuse for not having a real post today. You can, however, find me over at Jessica Lemmon's Sm:)e,Feel Good blog, being a smartass there instead of here.
Hope you'll stop by there and say hi! :)
