2010 - 55

Winter Olympics, my son wants to Luge
The shaking in Chili's 8.8 magnitude
Air travel disrupted from volcanic ash
The Deepwater Horizon goes down with a splash
Half way through the year and news slows just a little
Then miners in Chili get stuck in the middle
Finish it off with eclipse from the moon
Bring on the new decade, don't end too soon!

I broke the rules a bit, first time for everything I guess, but these are the major events I remember from this year.  I know there were more, as seen here, but these were important to me in some way.

Happy New Year!

Tell a story in 55 words and post the link here with G-man for Flash Friday 55!  Come and play.


  1. the chilean miners are the most present topic i remember from last year..oh and the volcana ashes of course - we had a japanese and a south african customer group over here for a seminar and it wasn't sure if and how we would get them back with all the canceled and delayed flights - was quite a nightmare from the organizational point of view...but we managed somehow - happy end..
    happy new year to you austin

  2. I loved watching the luge, although I'd be more inclined to try the bobsled. Nice 55!

  3. it has been quite an interesting year...nothing as inspiring as the miners...hope you have a great new years austin!

  4. It's been a wild year, hasn't it?
