Despite Mother Nature’s best efforts, I’m back! And I’ve just posted Chapter 13 too. I’m still debating whether to put up a special posting I’ve been working on about Part I and the rest of the story later this week. Check my blog on Thursday in the event that I do because it’s something you may want to read.
On a more serious note, I would like to extend my sympathies to all those suffering in the wake of Hurricane Irene. Vermont and western Massachusetts, where most of Part I has taken place, have been hit really hard, but many other communities up and down the East coast have suffered immense damage as well. Irene hit my community as well, but we were among the more fortunate victims of the storm.
If you’re allowed to give blood, think about doing so. The Red Cross does terrific work in disasters like this as well and could use your support.
