Favorite TweetStuff (09/02/11) ~ Enjoy! ~

What a week! Every Friday I collect favorites from my Tweet stream. This week, the first section is about Hurricane Irene. While perhaps not technically a “favorite”, Irene impacted millions of people — and still is — and was the impetus for great stories and photos. And then there’s the rest of the stuff. ;) Enjoy!
 

The Week of Irene

@NewsBoston 25 Best Hurricane Irene Images

@NBCNewYork WATCH: Irene Coverage Recap in 3-Minutes (cool vid. thanks for sticking with us through the storm!)
[SEO: From the New York NBC affiliate, so of course it has a New York/New Jersey emphasis, but is a good recap if you’re just now getting your power back. Mine was only out for 8 hours, and I’m grateful!]

@heykim Wow! A dozen wedding guests stranded by flooding, airlifted by helicopter
[SEO: They had their storybook wedding on Saturday at a Vermont Bed and Breakfast located on a farm. On Sunday, it all changed, including half the wedding party stranded on the wrong side of a bridge wash-out; wedding guests hiking in supplies to others stranded; and spending much of the week helping the locals clear roads. Even though it was literally a post-wedding disaster, the tone set by these out-of-towners was positive and “making the best of it”. Includes a raw footage video from the air of damage in Vermont.]

The Rest of the Best

@heykim OMG! Stunning pic!!! ~ Dramatic moment thunderbolt lights up Eiffel Tower (via @stormchaser4850)

@Quotes4Writers “Writing is an escape from a world that crowds me. I like being alone in a room. It’s almost a form of meditation.” ~ Neil Simon

@joyful76 “We have to distinguish between catastrophes we can repair and those that require us to face a new reality.” ~ Elizabeth Edwards

@goodthingz 28 Unusual & Creative Clocks (check out the turntable clock)
[SEO: Fascinating assortment of clocks, some of which are so abstract I can’t figure out where the time is. ;) The math clock might be good for kids!]

@Quotes4Writers “Truth is stranger than fiction, but it is because fiction is obliged to stick to possibilities; truth isn’t.” ~ Mark Twain

@DrAthenaStaik “I’m not crazy about reality, but it’s still the only place to get a decent meal.” ~ Groucho Marx

@goodthingz See No Evil — The UK’s Largest Street Art Project

@IvankaTrump “It occurred to me that the problem with doing nothing is not knowing when you’re finished.”
