Board Meeting Day

I woke up for some reason in the wee hours of the morning and was awake for a couple of hours before falling back asleep. I then awoke with a start at 9 AM realizing that I'd not turned the alarm clock on at all and it was an hour later than I wanted to get up. I rushed around and managed to get packed out of the motel room and over to where SFSFC was holding its meeting today and we started only about ten minutes late. (As I was the one hosting the conference call on Skype and I'm also the Secretary, I was the one holding things up.)

After the meeting, I gave David W. Clark the two boxes of books I carried back from San Diego via Fernley for him, then headed home. I was in a sufficient hurry to get out of the Bay Area and go home that I forgot that the van was due for an oil change from the Jiffy Lube in Newark where I've been taking it. I'll still have to get an oil change done before we head for Spokane next month.

As I came into the Reno/Sparks area, I saws some spectacular cloud-to-cloud lightning over the hills to the east, and hit some heavy rain through the Truckee River Canyon. Fortunately, the rain had already passed through Fernley by the time I got home and thus Lisa and I avoided getting soaked while unloading the van.

Now I get to get reacquainted with my own bed again, and I expect it to be much more comfortable that the one in the motel in which I was staying.
