ex machina

billions and billions of gallons of water

we've been getting a lot of rain around the great lakes region lately, which has been raising the lake levels. this is big news around these parts because the lake levels have been dropping steadily over the years, which has a dramatic impact on shipping and tourism.

according to our local news the other night the lakes are up 3 inches in the past week, 8 inches in the past month and 11 inches over the same time last year. astoundingly, the news anchor stated that 380 billion gallons of water are required to raise the lakes each inch.

of course, if it's on the local news, it must be true.

[ about ]

this site chronicles the continuing adventures of my son, odin, who was unexpectedly born on the fourth of july at 25 weeks gestation, weighing 1 pound 7 ounces.

he's quite a fighter and you can always send him a postcard to the most current address listed here if you're inspired by his adventures. see the postcard project/google maps mashup to see a map of the postcards.

if you're new, you can browse the archives to catch up. and don't forget to watch a few movies that i made while we were in the neonatal intensive care unit. or if you want the abridged version and you can find a copy, you can read about his adventures in the november 2005 issue of parents magazine.
