Community Building

As much as we love and are frustrated by moving to Hoquiam and the slow construction, we are haunted by the "what-ifs". If we had stayed a bit longer, we coulda hooked up with Freeway Blogger. If we had stayed, the buses would run every 6 minutes! The school across the valley, would become an awesome museum, that attracts authors and important speakers to the neighborhood! That nasty smelly Goodwill I've been shopping at for 28 years? Re-developed! The seldom noticed fruit stands I love? Just drive right on past. There's going to be a Target on Dearborn! a-a-And, then we can move the car over to the other end of the parking lot so's we can go to the other stores. Yeah, walkable neighborhoods.

Welcome to Seattle! It looks just like Scottsdale!

We'll come back and visit, but the neighbors have left the neighborhood.

*if you look way over in the left corner, you woulda seen our roof, before it was bulldozed for 4 cute Bungalows!

And here is community:
Here Comes the Rain Again. We thought it would be tomorrow. Went over to the 101 bar across the street to ask for help, and Dennis volunteered. Then, his Mama heard about it, and came over to get shit done. you rawk Barrie! Gonna be checking in with those guys much more.

Galveston, oh Galveston, I still hear your sea winds blowin'

UPDATE: Utility Fog sends more pictures.Well, crap. Dano just showed me this. Hurricane Ike Blackout: 1500 bodies found it Galveston?

Firedoglake reports in with Media Blackout as Ike Death Toll Rises. One site they link is a Ya Ya group, who has done astounding Google Earth coverage.

I think these links are safe for dial up. Anybody else hearing anything?

During contentious political times, some people are content to talk, talk, talk. I prefer to take action.

Keep an eye on Mudflats for the latest.
