What's wrong with this picture? [More:]Still don't have power at my place so am cribbing 'net and power from a friend. Lots of cleanup to do today, but fortunately the temp is 72 degrees, expected to go down into the hi 50s tonight. This makes reading by candlelight *ever* so much more pleasant.

How'd other bunnies fare all over the US and Canada?
ha!! The photo! Took me a minute...

Glad you're okay, WolfDaddy, and hope you get juice soon. Also a little electricity would be nice. :)

I wish gas was $2.09 a gallon!

Is it the price of Gas is too low?

Was weltering here in NYC for days, oppressive, gloomy and rainy, appropriately ominous for the collapse of Lehman/Wall Street.

but weltering is what it felt like, lol

Oh, wait, I saw a different photo than the gas one. I saw a cemetery with coffins that had apparently floated up and been tossed or washed around... but also something else interesting in the shot, that I won't give away right now, to see if anyone else sees it. (I might not even be right about what I think it is - the photo is quite small).

seanyboy, you are correct, gas prices haven't been that low in the US for at least four years, so the photo can't have been taken during Hurricane Ike. Now I'm having a major case of cognitive dissonance.

taz, I'm not seeing it!

Here is my photoset of pictures I took the day after we got hit.

I'm pretty sure this is a couple of dogs getting happy in the middle of the pic?

I'm calling it "Love in the Ruins".

I wonder why I saw a different image than the gas station one at first? Mystery.

Okay, well that's what I was focusing on, but couldn't make out what was going on. I had thought perhaps someone's remains or something had fallen out of a coffin o.O

Hi WolfDaddy - thanks for the update and stay cool.

It could have been a defunct-o gas station that went down in Ike. I drive past an abandoned one that's board shows $2.69 for premium and $2.24 for regular and have thought of taking a picture of it.

UGH on the cemetery picture. Another reason I want to be cremated.

Is the thread about gas prices? I don't drive but last time I noticed (sometime last week) I think it was $1.30/litre here.

According to Google that's $4.93/gallon.
