I'm Back, Hopefully for Good

I haven't been able to log in to blogger dashboard or make comments since May 25th so I'm very happy to discover I'm back in the loop this morning. Not that I have anything important to say, you understand, but I missed being able to read the blogs I follow and make inane or silly comments and look at everyone's pictures.

The storms that have been plaguing the Midwest finally arrived in our part of the country Thursday evening so I hope my midwestern friends are all safe. We didn't have tornadoes here, but strong wind brought down one of our huge spruce trees. It had been doing a pretty good imitation of the Leaning Tower of Pisa for quite some time, so we had wondered where it would land when it fell and whether it would take the shed with it since its roots grow under the shed. Thursday night it went down in the best possible place, across the yard, and didn't damage a thing. We just have to cut it up and take it out to the burn pile.

Our power was out for a while but we were asleep, and some other people around here lost trees too. People in other parts of NE Pennsylvania are still without power. All in all, in comparison to other states, we got off scott free.

Now to catch up with my Google Reader.


  1. I was in New York with a friend who lives in Central PA and her family was hit hard by storms while we were there. They had flooding in their basement. I'm glad you're back on blogger and you're safe and sound!

  2. I am glad you are okay and back in full swing, but I have made up my mind it is time to pension off Blogger. So as soon as my exams are over, I´ll begin figuring out how to create a Wordpress blog.

  3. There's nothing like the cool, damp days of spring in Pennsylvania to remind us of the beauty of what is yet to come. It's been 20 years since I've had the opportunity to experience it, but those days will stay with me forever.

  4. Those storms that hit Pennsylvania were violent and did a lot of damage, but our tree was the only damage we had. We had a mini-heat wave but now it's chilly again. And as you'll see by my post of June 4, I've been mowing and mowing but today we have rain yet again.

    Dorte, I wish you luck on WordPress. Cathy of Kittling:Books says it isn't as user friendly as blogger, so I guess I'll stay put for a while at least.
