Cleaning Up - Ike Day Eight

Ike made a mess.

Outside mess.

Inside mess.

The outside mess is trees and stuff blown off of houses. Gutters, chimneys, shingles, tiles, glass and outside furniture.

The inside mess is stuff that you swear you’ll clean up “in the morning” but don’t. There’s nothing worse than trying to clean up after dinner in the dark which is a strange thing for me to say since I clean up in the dark every time I camp.

So, what’s different between camping and living the post-Ike lifestyle?

I think it has to do with the notion that any minute now power will be restored and we can go on with our lives just as before Ike, whereas in camping we know we are out in the woods.

Anyway, here’s before ...



... and after ...

Glad you and Kink have power. Sorry you had to clean up after yourself. What a bummer. Can you get scouts to come do that for you?

Man that floral wall paper looks even better in photos than I remember it!
