As I often do, I went for a walk the length of downtown after breakfast. Things are very quiet at 8 AM on Saturday morning of the ceremonial first weekend of summer. (I consider "summer" to, in practice, run from Memorial Day weekend through Labor Day weekend.) The white building across the street and in front of me in this photo with the tow trucks is Hanneman Service, where we buy our propane and where the family-run business has been quite nice to Lisa and me. We've actually had to use their services as the local AAA affiliate three times: once before we moved here while we were scouting out locations, and twice thereafter, once when we had a radiator hose failure and once when we ran out of gas.
Note that there is still a tiny bit of snow on the higher peaks of the Pah-Rah Range in the right distance. Whether those outcrops will make it until June, I don't know. There's some hot weather ahead, although today should be quite comfortable.
No, we're not at BayCon. Because of needing to preserve resources for the European Worldcon trip, our only other convention this summer will be Westercon in Tempe, and even that one involves some complex logistics to preserve days off about which I'll talk when we get to it in July. It's not really a "staycation," though, as there is work to do. Today, Lisa and I will continue on the latest home improvement project. Concrete will probably be mixed and poured. No details or pictures until the project is complete, however. We don't want to jinx it.
