Ike Recovery Multitasking

leave a comment »

This past Monday, trash collection took normal trash, but left the pile of tree debris we had stacked out at the curb. Houston says its trash service will pick up storm debris; but our neighborhood contracts out with Waste Management, and of course there’s no readily available information to be had on what their policy will be or when it might be carried out. Our lawn service doesn’t chop debris, but did agree to haul it off next week. Even so, it’s relaxing to chop it all up myself, whereupon Susan will bag it, whereupon our trash collection will take it as if it were normal trash. (And after I took the lion’s share out by the pool for chopping, as pictured here, today’s trash collection did take the small orderly stack of debris that remained at the curb; so after this pile has been chopped and bagged, we will be done.)

But as lazy as this Ike recovery effort probably appears compared to what most Ike victims face, at least I’m multitasking. That’s not my Zen mp3 player piped into my ears; it’s my cell phone. I’m on a conference call, discussing government regulations that will extend relief for companies adversely affected by Hurricane Ike.
