Thank you to those thirty-seven who sent concerned emails plus the nine who sent urgent text messages.
In fact, I did not break the blog. Indeed it is broken, but I am not responsible for it, as surprising as that may be. (I'm surprised, too, but since I have been gone all day, I know it was not my doing.)
I have contacted Blogger support and am hopeful that their much more powerful brains will prevail.
In the meantime, enjoy another local blog, one with crazy better pictures.
edit: Make that thirty-eight. Another one came in while I was writing this.
