Palm Trees, part deux

The 2007 blog starts where the 2006 blog....started!

With a Palm tree rant.

The highwinds came last week, and our palm-lined streets were doused by thousands of pernicious, sole adhering, gutter clogging palm berries.

Fronds meanwhile are piled by the dozens in parkways and alleys, hopelessly exceeding green can limits. The boomerang shaped fronds encircle vent pipes, collect in roof valleys, and dangle from phone and cable lines. Their spikey lengths bloody hands and snag clothing.

Yeah, palm trees are GREAT.
