In a few minutes, I'm closing down the computer and hitting the road for the Bay Area for a week working down there. The Rolling Stone is packed, the "house" battery fully charged, and we confirmed yesterday that the propane furnace will light off. (It hadn't been used since last spring, and it took Lisa seven attempts to get it to light, as it takes a while to clear the air out of the feed lines.) Fortunately for me, the weather is good today, and the 10-day forecast shows clear on Friday when I should be heading home.

I wanted to get going sooner — I have to be up at 4:15 on mornings when I'm down there if I'm to be ready to work on time to mesh with my Central Time colleagues — but I was so tied up with multiple meetings yesterday (an SFSFC board meeting in the morning and a Worldcon 76 division heads meeting in the evening) plus the work thrown off by those meetings (and the updates to I wrote about yesterday) that I didn't get to bed until much later than usual.
