Time Event
Everyone Knows It's Windy
Last night, a storm was blowing its way into the Bay Area as I was leaving for the BASFA meeting. And I do mean blowing. I drive a Chevrolet Astro minivan, which is not a great vehicle in high winds, although not as bad as, say, a motorcycle. Also, when I replaced the tires on the van a while back, I picked harder-wearing tires, which means they're not that great on slick roads. Being a cautious -- some would say timid -- driver, especially with this combination, I kept the speeds down and irritated people behind me who wanted to drive at 70 mph in a driving rain with wind whipping so hard that the wipers couldn't clear the windshield even at their highest setting. I got the distinct impression that I was driving diagonally a few times, which is not a good feeling.

Having infected you with a persistent music meme, my work here is done.Collapse )

Today we have a bit of a break, which means I have no excuse not to go walking at lunch, but then we should get another storm that, unlike this last one, is supposed to be cold rather than warm, so we may see some snow on the hills again. Hm, I work in the hills now. I wonder what the altitude here at Campus Drive is.

Current Mood: mischievous
