YeeeeeHaaaaaaaw! Let there be Light!
Thanks earthmother. One chap in the neighborhood acutally lit fireworks when the power came back on, apparently to alert the neighborhood of that fact.Tom
I am glad you got your power back and that you are all ok.I am useing Minima Stretch as my template, and for publishing I use Live Writer. In Writer you can largen your pics by just draging. It is very easy :-)
Yipee!My neighbors across the street got their electric back late Friday afternoon. We were never without power. I do appreciate your visit and your leaving some detailed information related to the Pileated Woodpecker and Red-headed Woodpecker. I do know the only Pileated I ever saw here since 1962 is the one I show on my blog. I got about 200 photos but many are not good enough to show. I have never knowingly seen a Red-headed Woodpecker here in 46 years.There is another family of Pileated Woodpeckers not far from where I live but in the country and it is seen almost every day.Here is the response I made on my blog to you and brought here.Thanks for the information, Tom. I had no idea this kind of material is available. I read it and looked at the distribution map and Montgomery County is the same as Darke County. That surprised me because there are some very large, and older, wooded acres in Darke County especially in the northwestern parts. My wife's aunt and uncle lived near a huge woods or forest the likes of which I have never seen in Ohio except down south near Portsmouth. But that was 30 years ago so it might be different now.You asked about Red-headed woodpeckers. I have Red-bellied only, plus lots of smaller woodpeckers of every description but I never saw a Red-headed woodpecker here. I also looked at the distribution map and read the article and I would think they would be here but not in my backyard yet, that I am aware of anyway.Every photograph you see on any of my blogs was taken in my backyard (wildlife). It is a small space given over to wildlife many years ago. And we are surrounded by houses like mine built in 1962. We were the first to move in and the lot was a dead zone. I couldn't even find a nightcrawler or a fishing worm in the soil.If I had room I would have a forest.
I'm so glad! What a relief that must be.
Hoorayyyyyyyyy! *Puts "Celebration" on the stereo & dances everyone around*
Ivar- Thanks, I'll have to check those out.Abe- Glad that I could be of help, and I've got some extra acorns that could help you start your forest.Mary- It is nice. The whole neighborhood was just starting to get angry and exhausted. The morale has increased exponentially since the lights came back on.You got it Lana- I've got my fingers crossed that now more hurricanes will hit Ohio this year.Tom
Tom: Way to go, I do hope you didn't lose your fridge and freezer food. I think that is what I would be most concerned with at first.
Tom- Our fridge and freezer was a total loss- sans some lemons and Jelly, we through everything away. Megan had fun today buying new groceries.Tom
Good news! Hope Megan got some tasty groceries to replace what you lost :)
Me- She did. I cooked a few scrambled eggs this morning, and they were quite good and hot.
