Piewacket is a silent ETS veteran. This is the cat, who still only some 10 months old violently attacked my leg as I tried leaving. It was during a violent winter rainstorm. A massive California live oak branch of some 4' diameter came crashing down. It took out the stairwell, a few cars and my nieghbor's wall.I would have been descending that stairwell.Now he wakes me up at 5A.M. biting my ear until I get up and feed him.

santa monica here had partial black out, my apt was without power when I came home. was hoping USC would be too so they would cancel class today (work was really bad last couple weeks and didn't feel like going to class today) but the school had no power interruptions so off to school I went.

7 hours later I came back and the power was already restored.
