Balcony carnage

August 6, 2010 by 8junebugs

A moment of silence, please, for the following:

1 patio table, horribly, permanently tipped — still standing, but vaguely reminiscent of Alice’s Wonderland experience

1 iridescent multi-herb pot that dutifully grew untold quantities of oregano throughout 2009, stood empty this season, and held too little leftover dirt to weight down the table upon which it sat

1 regular tomato plant that wasn’t bearing well, anyway

6 pots of various herbs unlikely to come out of this latest drenching

Several thousands of my neighbors whose power is out until God knows when

This is one of those times when I need to bite my tongue about how much I love severe weather. DC can’t catch a break this year.
