Wrath of Nilam

Well, I haven’t been in India a week and I’ve already experienced my first tropical cyclone. Melissa and I were out and about yesterday and decided it was time to hightail it back to her house. The winds were picking up and the sky angry. On the auto trip from Alwarpet to Besant Negar, we saw many trees down and streets starting to fill with water. The winds increased in intensity shortly after reaching the house and the power cut. We could hear glass breaking, people yelling and trees cracking as the storm made landfall south of here (near Mahabalipuram). The extent to which the wind bent the coconut trees around the house amazed me, how were they all not snapped in two? This morning, aside from a bit of wind it’s hard to tell a storm went through, we’ll be leaving soon to see the damage to the neighborhood, and check to see if they rescued the large diesel tanker that ran aground at nearby Elliot Beach.

New bow came just before I headed north for rifle season.  Picked up a used PSE Ghost for a decent price on E-Bay, 40 lb limbs and an ILF riser.  I need Hans and Frans to pump me up, I can draw it but it ain’t pretty 😂. For the time being I’ll stick to my 35 lb and work on form. #psearchery #recurvebow #recurve #archery #tradbow #traditionalarchery Yukon was so happy he got to go into the shop today!  He always loves when he finds new people to give him butt scratchins’ 😂 #labmix #blacklab #labradorretriever #labsofinstagram #rescuedog #muttsofinstagram #michigan #flyshop #olddogsrule #seniordog Took my buck into the DNR check station yesterday.  As a scientist, it’s part of the process I really enjoy.  They aged him at at least 3 1/2 years old, possibly 4 1/2, antler bases measured 29 mm and 31mm. @michigandnr #whitetailhunting #deerhunting #rifleseason2017 #riflehunting #michigan #buck #whitetail #deer #antler #buck The heart from my buck was huge!  This is destined for anticuchos, can’t wait! #deerheart #hunting #whitetailhunting #deerhunting #rifleseason2017 #michigan
