We made it!

Well, that was the most spectacular windstorm either of us can remember — and we get some doozies here along the Channel. But we never lost power.

We did, however, lose two trees. One was dead, and we kind of expected it to come down in the blow. The other was a live plum tree, though, and it will be missed. But they didn’t damage anything in the falling, so we’re going to call this one a win.

Merry Christmas, y’all! Hope Sandy Claws dumps a load of awesome down your chimbley!

Merry Christmas, O! Weasel! I’ll be thinking about you poor, lost ex-pats while I’m straining my fruit-cups through an old sock in preparation for some toilet tank wine.

Merry Christmas to Stoaty and Uncle Badger, and to all the furry and feathered friends at Badger House. I’m glad the winds didn’t blow you away. I don’t know what Weasels and Badgers eat for Christmas breakfast, but I hope you enjoy yours enormously.

Have a wonderful Christmas all!

I’m home from Alaska, and sweating in 37 degree Eugene. It was an almost unbearable 49 degrees at the coast this afternoon. Thankfully, there was a good stiff wind chill.

If you find yourselves in the PNW, do stop in.

Happy Christmas Sweasel and Uncle Badger, and everyone else.

This is what I wish Santa would put under the tree for me.

Dropped to a nice pleasant 10C here, bit of an Antarctic swell blowing through.

May you have a good Christmas and an excellent New Year.

Not much wind in Chicago, which is good because it’s been freaking cold. Which hasn’t deterred the gangbanger element: 4 killings and 17 other shootings this weekend.

A bit tardy, but – a Happy Christmas, all hereabouts, and best wishes for the coming year…

Even for the Kiwi troll who’s always lurking about.

Beware: more than one link in a comment is apt to earn you a trip to the spam filter, where you will remain -- cold, frightened and alone -- until I remember to clean the trap. But, hey, without Akismet, we'd be up to our asses in...well, ass porn, mostly.
