Birds Of A Feather?

Since the weather was abnormally nice for mid November, the wife and I decided to go for a walk last Sunday (11/13). There were a couple of reasons as to why we actually went for a walk together. One, I wasn't able to get my normal Saturday walk in 'cause I had to spend the morning at DMV and two, the wife is on a weight loss kick and I finally convinced her to go on a walk with me.

So off the park we went and because I decided to stun two birds with one pine cone, I took a slew of videos. Six in all, as a matter of fact. Fortunately for you, all are in the general neighborhood of 2 1/2 minutes for viewing time. Aslo fortunately for you, they all cover one general topic: Father Nature. Hope you enjoy this little slice of suburban life today.

The Bad Thing About Storm Alfred

click here for companion video

As promised, here is the bad thing about "Storm Alfred".

Lots of damage. Although this video will show you a small representative sample of what went down on October 29th, I will tell you from my travels the next day, that the damage ran the gamut from what you saw in the video to quite a few houses having trees blown onto them (winds were 15 to 45mph, with gusts up to 70 in some parts of the state).

I won't say that you should enjoy this video, but keep in mind what I told you about the background in the first video, because that exact same background pops up early in this video. BTW, the video clocks in about 10 minutes, so feel free to skip around if you wish.
