Weekend Reading: Tales from Journal Land

Posted by Gaiiden, in Weekend Reading 09 November 2012 · 1,063 views

So first it was Hurricane Sandy. That swept through and knocked out my power for 8 days - I even lost cell service for 4. Then, the day after power returned we had another storm sweep through that dumped 6" of heavy wet snow with high winds and took out our power again - thankfully less than a day. But still, it's been pretty rough around here near the Jersey Shore the last two weeks! Things are finally starting to return to normal, for me at least, so here's the past week of journal entries. Hopefully you've been keeping up with your favorites while I've been incapacitated Posted Image

Here are your Journal Land entries from the period of 11/2 - 11/9
