We got hit with a severe band of it last night, knocked out power for an hour or two. Lots of branches down, we we did not lose a single tree.
Driving home from work I had to drive over branches that made me glad I have a kick ass vehicle to handle that sort of thing. Cars couldnt go over them!
We are in a drought too, but got some downpours that might have helped the grass a bit.
Yes, here too, I tend to take out the malformed limbs myself so when a big storm roars through all it can do is blow some leaves and small sticks around. Although the wind here was both sudden and constantly changing direction.
It's Hells Saints alter ego here with some news from Lorania
Yesterday (the 5th) brought the emergence of a new WA delegate... me! Yes, I know, how the heck did SS get elected. But after preaching my ideas of a WA committee and the like, I got enough support. It had been a tie for most of the time, 3 for SN and 3 for me. But then Sirian said "to hell with it" (I may be just guessing) and voted for yours truly. I'll try to do my best and carry through on my election promises, one of them being to try and commend Skundi.
In the last 2 days the region has added 9 nations to it's ever growing population. 4 of them have come from The Hellenic Kingdom, which has now closed. But this has brought much activity to the RMB, some RP ideas, and the starting of a flag contest hosted by me (who else?) and co-hosted by Welsh Chubut one of our new nations and an expert flag connoisseur.
This did happen awhile ago, but I wanted to put the WA election and the MP ones in the same issue. Not much an eventful happening here. Gwentrev, North Cromch, Cousethii, Matroyska, and Sirian are our new MPs. We'll see what they do for the region in the coming weeks. So far they have voted in Saint Sully to be the acting Chief Justice as Zweites Preussen takes a break... which reminds me...
Our regional Chief Justice, co-founder of the TCC, and woodpecker enthusiast, has taken a break. In which to relax and gather their thoughts on how to continue with the construction of Aramos. To see their full declaration of a break see here:
I encourage everyone to check them out.
