October snowstorm

In late October we got a freak snowstorm that caused all sorts of damage to the area. Because there were still so many leaves on the trees and the snow was wet and heavy, it brought down many branches and trees. We lost power for about 10 hours, but we were lucky. There were many people without power for a week. Here are a couple of photos from the tree damage in our yard.


Video from phone

Well, I can also upload videos from my phone to the site now, but unfortunately it seems it’ll only work if you have quicktime installed on your PC. Not great, but better than nothing. Another downside is I think the entire video needs to download to your computer before you can view it. Still, that’s better than nothing. We’ll just have to make sure we only post small videos from our phones.

This video was taken in March, 2010. It shows two hoses attached to two utility pumps in our basement pumping out the water. We got 8″ of rain in one storm. We ended up with 3″ of water in the basement that took a week to finally go away!

Android app

There’s an app made for Android phones that lets you add posts to WordPress sites. Very cool! Below is a photo I took with my phone during our trip to Bar Harbor in September.
