The BAT-BLOG is Back!

OK, I guess I sort of feel like I owe Bat-Blog Fans & Readers a small apology. I have not been able to obsessively do a few posts every single day recently, like I have been for over 3 years. The main problem was because of a major hail storm we experienced here where I live, in Oklahoma. One day we had a sudden blast of baseball-sized hail surge from the sky. It broke out my truck's windshield, completely totaled my girlfriend's car, & heavily damaged our home's roof & garage. It was total hell...a complete nightmare! As a side note: the storm also damaged cable lines coming to the house & we had no internet service for about 5 or 6 days. I finally got that back on & then, yesterday, we had a major flash flood ( 11" where I live ) & I had to spend all day moving plastic buckets around inside the house to catch water coming in. Once a leak was under control another new one would develop...good times, good times. Anyways, I don't want to sound like I'm making excuses or that I'm a crybaby, ha ha, but I have been pretty busy lately. In over 3 years of doing the BAT-BLOG I have NEVER gone this many days without posting. So, for that I apologize. Just to be clear, the attached photo is of a Custom Bat-Boat seen at Lake Eufaula in Oklahoma & has noting to do with our flooding crisis yesterday. I just thought it was funny ( Thanks to Leslie for sending the picture ).

Hey Tom,

my thoughts are with you man. Now don't go apologizing because your normal train of life gets interrupted by a CATACLYSM! I've only been on here for a bit over a year, but I feel a bat-kinship with you, and I hope things fall into place for you in the briefest of delays. Take care.

No need to apologize. Went through a hail storm about 5 years ago where I live and it was a nightmare. Hope you get through everything all right.
