Editor's Note: Hurricane Irene Places Tree on Book Business Blogger Michael Weinstein's House—No Blog This Week
Many along the East Coast suffered the wrath of Hurricane Irene. One of Book Business' resident bloggers, Michael Weinstein, unfortunately, was one of them. The good news is that Michael was unharmed, but we can't say the same for a very large tree on his property and his country house.
Check out the photo of Irene's strategic placement of the tree on house, so as to engulf the entire house in bark, branches and leaves. If you are an extreme optimist, you might say it almost looks as if the tree is giving the house a hug—a hug Michael and his house could most certainly have done without.
"I have definitely added this to [my] black-humor catalog," Michael told us. "I'll be writing a book about what's happened with this house—fire, snakes ...; this is just another chapter."
