Hello email readers,
Something strange happened yesterday: My first-ever post at DirtNKids Blog (this one) magically appeared in my and many other inboxes, but not in the WordPress reader (which is where I read my blogs). The date of the post was what stuck out.
January 14, 2012. Posted yesterday. Just. Weird.
I can’t explain what happened, but man oh man. Did it awaken the blog’s readership! I got phone calls, texts, and even some of my regular not-close-friend followers (who didn’t realize the blog’s age) were keen to comment on the anomaly. A normally sleepy stats page went absolutely berserk which was kind of fun to watch, actually.
Equally strange was this out-of-place pile of flood debris nearby. It is all staged to be compressed into giant bundles — drywall, furnishings, batting, flooring — and delivered straight into a giant hole in the ground. Houston’s curbs still look a whole lot like this (though in miniature), and summing the whole of debris volume for our giant city is just mind-blowing.
Sad, Sad Pile Of Trash
Thanks for rattling my cage in whatever manner that suits you best. It’s nice being back in touch with you all again. Cheers!
