A beaver’s paradise

January 22, 2008

I stumbled upon the graveyard for all of Tulsa’s tree damage from the ice storm. They have taken over a giant swath of Johnson Park. I hope the photos & video can do justice to just how large the piles of tress and mounds of mulch were. Also, notice the white, jet engine-sized wood chipper in one of the pictures. Maybe this area was what that sleeping beaver was dreaming of…

Walkin with the fishes

Made a trip to the Oklahoma Aquarium this weekend with some friends who came into town. Frankly, I was kind of disappointed. I guess the only other aquarium I’ve been to is the one in Chicago, so that’s not a fair comparison. One of the high notes of this trip was the snoozing beaver (as you can see in the photos). It was sawing some serious logs.

So my area has been hit with an ice storm & major power outage, but I fortunately still have power. I’m actually on someone else’s wireless while I write this post. While my place here is fine, check out my house back in OKC:
