He Blows a Lot

And by "he," I mean Santa Ana. And by "Santa Ana" I mean the gale force winds that blew through here last night, not the Mexican general who killed Fess Parker and Buddy Ebsen.

Anyway, I apologize for the absence of posts, but the Internet has been out since sometime after midnight, and according to the computer-generated voice I get whenever I call our provider (which manages to sound both robotic and impatient, like a Dalek that would LIKE to exterminate you, but is simply too fucking exasperated) there is currently no ETA for when service might be restored. So I thought I'd see if I could post a Please Stand By notice using my phone.

Apparently so. And it's every but as tedious to write as it is to read -- like a cyber-Jiffy Pop!

Hope to be back online soon.

Christ man. It's like Job land around here. Don't go looking back.

We got snockered in South Pas too. I had a fucking tree resting on my roof this morning and a leaf drift half way up my car.

Stay 3G, Pony Boy. And get better. Your posts are killing me inside these days.

I might get one of these sell phones you kids always talk about one of these days.

Can you post a photo to your blog on it, Scott? (My blog exists for the pics.)

It'll let me post an image, but I haven't figured out how to place it where I want it, or how to properly size the thing so it doesn't break the frame. I'm sure there's some secret blend of 11 herbs and spices in the Blogger mobile app I haven't doped out yet.

There are public libraries, you know.

Santa Ana?

OK, look, I'm as liberal as they come but I draw the line at having a FEMALE SANTA for Christmas! He's a fat jolly old elf, and if you say the same thing about a woman, you get your head handed to you!

Once again we're all reminded that the only important national consideration in weather disaster stories is which coast they occurred on.

100 mph winds? In the midwest we call that "April".

The late, great Johnny Carson once reminded us that Southern California has four seasons: earthquake, wind, fire and flood. Find somethinf secure, Scott, and hold on tight!
