and I almost stepped on a snake while walking on the airstrip. Thankfully I noticed it in time, and was able to levitate out of the way. It was fat and a light green color, and looked as grateful to not be stepped on as I was to have not stepped on it. That got my heart pounding for a bit though, let me tell you!
I was going to write yesterday, but we had a big storm come through that didn’t seem like such a big deal, but a tree just below my house was struck by lightning, and that strike did quite a bit of damage. Covers of breaker boxes and phone jacks were shot off in several houses, and the strike must have hit something in the ground as several houses have a small chunk of cement or a line of tiles from the floor blasted off. I’ve got partial power in my house just now; they haven’t figured out how to get the 110 lights back on again. You would never have thought that particular storm would produce such a fierce charge, but it all goes to show that you just never know!
