Its Friday the 13th and my power at home isn’t working. Guess the thunderstorm fried something again!!!
I think I have let everyone know already but tomorrows CLDL banding has been canceled due to 80 percent chance of thunderstorms hitting in the morning. We have rescheduled the banding for Sunday morning instead. Call me or email me if anyone has any questions.
Since my power is out, I am testing my blackberry with my first BB post. Hope it works. . . . BTW that photo is from young naturalist j last month when he was camping in the park.

By the way Tom’s BlackBerry did not get this on the web but it did get on flickr so this is YOUNG NATURALIST J doing this post!!!
Thanks ynj for getting this post on the blog for me, ugg should have worked but for some reason didn’tn must try again when I get my power back online.

I see so many people with Blackberries. I’m wondering what in the world I’d do with one if I got one. I can see the potential, though, in breaking news, in weather reports, posting on blogs, etc.
It’s a real pain to lose power. Candles and Monopoly. I hope you get your power back on soon. As I type this, a big thunderstorm is coming in. I hope we don’t lose ours.
I love the picture of YNJ.

Thanks Linda and I am feeling still connected with my blackberry. Its expensive but at this point I am not sure if I could live without it!

LOL… Friday the 13th indeed! They call them “Crackberries” where I work for the addicts who have to carry them!

EVERYONE: my power came back on late in the evening but not long after that my cellphone lost reception. As I am typing (should be banding) we are getting down poring rain.
@ jayne – without a doubt it was one of those days!

Tom, is it possible for us to stop by the “CLDC” banding efforts now scheduled for Sunday 6/15? Teresa and I were going to do a hike at ASP, and wondered if this was permissible. We’d be very interested. Location of the banding station is what we’re after. Many thanks.

Hang in there, Young Naturalist J! That’s the thing about nature & amateur astronomy…Weather happens.

You have a Blackberry? Lucky you.
If I were you, Tom, I’d check in to the nearest hotel. But, it’s in the mid-90’s here – probably much cooler up there.

@ Peter, not sure who you are but I emailed you my cell number! Call me for directions!
@ Lana – tell me about it!
@ Mary – Thanks and would go to mcdonalds they have wifi also!

Over the phone I even gave him the freedom to throw in a dig . . . . and this is what he said! Guess he knew I was having one of those days !

I thought I had a lucky Friday the 13th.
Passed my old work duties on to a gifted successor. Got my computer shut down just before the lightning struck the transformer.
Had supper with a good friend 😉
and spent the evening, after the storm passed, taking photos.
