Oi. I seem to be on the once-a-week update schedule. Urk.
This weekend was Nukestock, the annual Halloween party thrown by my old Las Cruces chums. It was a good time, very laid back, lots of visiting with people I only see every few years or so.
Getting back was a bit of an adventure, as most of Southern California is going up in flames (or so the news would indicate). My place is less than 100m from the Pacific Ocean, so if my apartment were seriously threatened, there wouldn't be much San Diego to return to.
After various delays and “what the hell do I do now?” moments, I’m safely back home. We got to see some of the fire from the plane on the way into town, but it wasn’t nearly as impressive as I had hoped. I guess I’ll wait until the dry wind picks up again tomorrow.
