Almost [Oct. 13th, 2016|10:55 pm]
When I was outside fetching the mail a few minutes ago there was a brief sprinkle, but apparently that was only a stray shower and not the onset of the storm. I expect it will be raining before midnight, though, and that everything will be thoroughly soaked by the time I get up tomorrow. Right now I have a very strong craving for ice cream. Maybe I've had an unconscious premonition that the power will go out and the ice cream in the freezer will melt and be ruined. There's lots of other stuff in the freezer, so I don't know why I don't have a craving for any of those things. I'm going to eat ice cream anyway, and just hope that the burritos and tamales and taquitos and fish sticks and shrimp scampi and such will survive the storm.

Wednesday was beautiful here in Portland, then the sprinklers got turned on Thursday. I suppose it was the same storm you got in Northern CA. I'd been planning to work to 8pm and pick up some extra time, but the dire warnings of the forecasting services persuaded me to leave at 6. I imagined my homeward commute being an ordeal with sheets of blinding rain, gale-force winds, and my Subaru being swept from the Ross Island Bridge into the depths of the Willamette River. But in the end, the whole thing was quite tame.

It has been much milder here than expected, too. Actually quite enjoyable, in fact— aside from my Internet connection frequently going away. That part's very annoying.
