Rummaging Again . . .

It's been over 2 years since I posted here, and in the spirit of my "Reforms of 2011" Act, in which I pledged to mail all birthday cards before the actual birthdays (and even possibly to arrive before the actual birthdays), I will start Rummaging again periodically.

Starting slow, I will reflect this morning on Hurricane Irene and my preparations.

Preparations involved making sure I had
  • a flashlight and charged-up technologies
  • water
  • marshmallows (In the case of power loss, these supply warm and nourishing food while conserving the power of candlelight.)
This morning, it looks like spring. Cities always seem to weather storms better than the more distant and rural parts. So perhaps Hurricane Irene was mostly a lovely excuse for a day without purpose, requirements, or accomplishment. These days are all too rare.
