I'm shutting down my computer here at my father-in-law's house and packing it up for travel. (Yes, I saw the new rules about lithium batteries. One of my two computers will go in checked luggage with its battery installed; the other computer and the other spares, all of which are within regulation, go with me onto the plain.) I won't be online again until sometime on the 1st -- at PDX if I have time, or when I get back to the Bay Area.

This evening, as the freezing fog rolled in, so did many people to the Mehama Community Church across the street from us. (And note that "street" here is a minor gravel road.) They have a New Year's Eve party there, it seems, and we expect there to be noise and fireworks in about two-and-a-half hours. Lisa and I will probably play an Empire Builder game, that being how we've spent most of our evenings on this trip. Happy New Year!
