The Nature’s Fury Blogathon – Day 3 Recap

We’ve come to the end of the line for this ‘ol blogathon folks, but not before we’ve been attacked by all varieties of creatures great and small, and felt the angry, unforgiving wrath of Mother Nature at her most petulant.

It’s been a great honor to host the Nature’s Fury Blogathon, and get the chance to read so many terrific articles by a bunch of amazingly talented people. I can’t thank everyone enough for taking the time from their busy schedules to make this happen. Hopefully, it won’t be another two years before I muster up the initiative to host another such event, but until that nebulous day, let’s take a look at the last (but certainly not least) batch of posts…

And while you’re at it, be sure to visit the Day 1 and Day 2 Recaps!
