I didn’t realize it’s been almost ten days since I last posted, but things have been incredibly busy for me. We actually lost power a couple days ago and it took them six hours to come out to our neighborhood to realize a transformer blew up. So they had to send more crews out. I’m not kidding, the street was lined with utility trucks. Finally, at 10pm they seemed to be done, and then we heard roughly four mini explosions and it turned out they blew out all of the transistors/transformers/whatever they’re called on our street. So they continued to work through the night…at one point they left (we think to get supplies or something) but they left their trucks on, rumbling at 2 a.m. I have no idea when they finished, but it wasn’t a particularly fun evening, especially since the only two candles we had in the house were “Hot Apple Pie” and “Scents of Beach,” which are two smells that should not mix. It’s like a warm cinnamon stick dipped in sun screen
Anyway, I’ve been listening to some cools stuff…hopefully I’ll find the time to write about it.
Oh, also, does anyone know how to get groundhogs to stay out of your garden/yard without actually killing or trapping them? They keep eating our vegetables and I’m tired of chasing them and I don’t have the stomach to kill them. If you have any suggestions, please tweet me (@phillipjspencer). Thanks!
