So yeah, we found about 9 months worth of pictures on the camera. None of you complained, so I see how much you check this :)

Yup.

Server Move

February 9th, 2010

Some of you may have noticed my web server was moved by my hosting company. This resulted in some problems getting to the website over the weekend, and once they completed the move (which they managed to screw up) I had to spend some time fixing the things they didn’t move right.

As far as I know everything (especially the pictures) is back up and working properly. If you find a problem with anything let me know.

Picture Cleanup

December 3rd, 2009

Ok, I’ve spent some time cleaning up the pictures section (thanks Keith, for hacking php with me again).
You can now find the newest pictures at the top of the page along with a quick link to jump to the dates. The part that I really wanted to do though was integrate the picture gallery into the overall look of the page – you’ll see now that while browsing pictures you have the same look as the rest of the site.

Let me know what you think!

Water vs. Road

September 23rd, 2009

This is why you need to respect water on a road.

Flood!

September 22nd, 2009

First of all everyone is ok.  I’ve had a lot of phone calls/questions regarding the flooding in Atlanta.  We do live in one of the emergency areas and many of the roads near our house are flooded/closed.  Clara didn’t have school today and picking her up from school yesterday was insane – I drove through parking lots/down sidewalks in 4WD.  Monday was the highest rainfall ever in Atlanta after 6 days of straight rain.  It’s a mess.

The basement back wall was leaking about 2am Monday morning, I spent several hours with fans and a broom keeping the water from spreading.  At 730 I took Clara to school and bought a shop vac and a industrial blower to dry the carpet.  By about 10am it was looking like I had everything under control, and then the rain reach a new high.  By 1130 I was losing the battle and the water was spreading.  At 1230 the flooding was reaching serious levels and Clara’s school called to say they were closing please come get your children if you can the nearby roads were flooding out (her school is near a small lake and a small river).  It took me about 2 hours to pick her up (normally about 10 min each way in normal traffic).  The flooding was getting really bad, at one point on the way back the road behind me washed out as a tree broke through.  Many cars were forced to be left in the water as people scrambled to higher ground.  I decided if the car was going to be left in the flood I might as well try to make it through the water so we drove through a parking lot with water at one point up to the hood and the car nearly stalled.  We got back home where I found that where I had been losing the battle with the water the war was already over.  The entire basement was under about 2 inches of water and the water continued to pour in and run out to the garage and down the driveway.

I waited for the heavy rain to be over and drove the girls to my in-laws (they live a bit North where there wasn’t much flooding).  I spent the night with my new best friend Mr 6.5 Horsepower shop vac ( I seriously love this thing, it’s a beast).  I have like 3 20″ fans, a 24″ and a industrial blower running trying to get the carpet dried out.  There is some moisture in the drywall, I will have to see how it turns out.
