The winds have been whipping up around these parts....

Early this morning....

Bev (from her bedroom): Antenna's down!

Me (sleeping in chair): What?

Bev:  Antenna's down!

Me (after long pause):  Oh.

Took a moment to sink in.  Yes, our 40-plus-year-old antenna is no more.  Or, rather, it's no longer in the shape it was--felled, at long last, by strong winds and gravity.  I took some photos, bent and flattened it (to make it less aerodynamic), and hauled it to our trash center in back.

Bev heard the crash, but I didn't.  Oh, well.  It survived the digital broadcasting switchover, only to perish in a gust.  As used as we are to satellite TV, we'll miss the old aerial.  Or not....
