well, the weather outside was...frightful.
as craig so kindly filled in, we got hit here on thursday night with a terrible ice storm of freezing rain and dropping temperatures. the roads glazed up, but it was really later into the night that the scary part started. laden with heavier and heavier coats of ice, the trees all around the property simply couldn't hold it up any more. the woods actually sounded like bombs and gunshots were going off all through the night, followed by huge crashes that made me think of giants stomping through the woods. they took down the power lines at our place at about 1:30. when i got up with jake at about 6 yesterday morning, the crashes could still be heard all around and the destruction was everywhere. it looked like a war zone; huge limbs cracked and hanging, crushed trees and bushes everywhere, whole trees uprooted and laying down. it was a very sad sight. still is.
power's back up now and it's both clean up and catch up time.

i think this one was kinda last minute too.
i think that this year was a particularly busy one come holiday season.
i think this one was rattled off pretty quick.
on another note; mike estelle was kind enough to point out to me (see how outta the loop i am...!) that issue 46 of marvel adventures spider-man came out this week. it's a special holiday issue that i wrote and features artwork by roberto castro and greg adams! you can see a sneak preview of it over
but you can check out the cool cover by our pal, skottie young, right
a little spidey makes a great stocking stuffer!
smell ya later!
