Blog Log: The week in local blogging

From Asheville’s apparent monsoon season springs forth sprouts from the blog garden.

Yes, it rained. A lot. Even those who depend on the rain, such as the Asheville Gardener, were crying uncle. Such weather can bring on cabin fever, compounded by cats puking on computers, as happened at Small Measure.

We find ways to pass the time though, but you don’t have to resort to Boston Dreams and Michelin Stars’ Blue Cheese Ice Cream. In case of a day shut inside, Asheville Dilettante has this simple equation for happiness.

Remember last week, when we showed you Insatiable Curiosity’s post on just arriving in Asheville? Well, here’s one from Old Runner on what he likes and hates about the Night of the Ninja. And A Year in Asheville reflects on having been in Asheville a year.

The wildlife keeps coming, with Ephemera noting that maybe bear encounters are more popular than its namesake. Nice Marmot had a run in with an opossum of the live kind, and Thought Patterns ran into one of the dead persuasion.  And then Dark Topography has a photo documentation of an encounter with Johnny.

Bruisin’ Ales Beer Blog advances the discussion with this manifesto of proper social networking in a world of Facebook and Twitter (her message: Don’t sweat it so much), and Blog Hendersonville got a rare peek into that city’s underground.
