ex machina

the eric update - day 1813: the day everyone simultaneously turned on the air conditioning?

hmmmm. odin and i were hanging out getting ready for Yet Another Bike Ride when the power went out. neighbors emerged from their houses and we all quickly confirmed that the outtage wasn't limited to us. odin and rode to a nearby intersection and a friendly police officer who was trying to guide traffic at one of 3 traffic lights in the county told us that 3/4 of the county was without power. activity from lots of fire engines and emergency vehicles reinforced the impression that Something Big was happening. reports from twitter ( and facebook ) further reinforced the impression.

reports from the local paper seem to indicate it was a localized incident.

/me wonders, what's up?

"it is hard to be brave," said piglet, sniffing slightly, "when you're only a Very Small Animal." rabbit, who had begun to write very busily, looked up and said: "it is because you are a very small animal that you will be Useful in the adventure before us."

[ 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.
