That's true, but if it can summon the ectoplasm to drain the pot, it can damn well summon the ectoplasm to make the next! I went through this with too many coworkers in various places to put up with it at home. 

It was smart enough to summon ectoplasm to leave enough coffee at the bottom so that it doesn't have to make the next one.

We are currently experiencing a Washoe Zephyr.

That's a really powerful wind storm, characteristic of the area where we live.  Visibility is down to 200 feet or less.

I can't see the street from our front porch and the mini-barn is visible but obscured.

The barn is circa 100 feet from the house, right next to our well.

The windows on the south side of the house are actually pulsating from the pressure of the wind.

Having thinly sliced leftover london broil with mac and cheese for dinner.

The meat is marinating and the refrigerator smells 'good enough to eat'.

Weather here suppose to change tomorrow or at least by the weekend, drop from the 90s into the 70s with high chances of scattered showers. While the air was typical but hot Texas heat, it was nice to actually see into the distance while I was down there. Came back here & it was worse then it was before. It was really bad this morning. The area where I84 cuts the town from town to Wallyworld Neighborhood you couldn't even see due to the smoke in the area. Visibility for the mtns to the North were negative as well.

 

Looking forward to when it gets colder here, mainly cause the air isn't so damn smokey!

"Show's over"

The windstorm has blown through and all is now calm.

-

They are reporting on the radio today that there are looters in the South Lake Tahoe Area. 

The local bears discovered that the houses were vacant and at least one mama bear and her two cubs have been observed exiting the "scene of the crime",  a vacant home where mama battered down the back door and mama and cubs had a good rummage while foraging for the sort of tasty goodies that humans are known to keep on hand.

Hope everyone who went to ReaperCon had a blast!

 

The Mrs and I had a great time visiting family in Alaska. Went ATVing, got muddy, spent time with the nieces and nephews, went to the state fair, and saw some amazing scenery. 

I did, thank you.

 

It sounds like you had a pretty good time, too!

 

In other news, I have a MYSTERY!

 

I got home from work to find a box from Reaper on my doorstep. Now, I know I didn't order anything, I was just at Reapercon and would've just bought whatever it was I wanted.

Upon closer inspection, it is addressed to my WIFE! :blink: My wife doesn't paint, or at least she didn't before Reapercon. I wonder if I'm going to need to keep a closer eye an my stuff....

You are just going to need to order "two of everything" when you place an order.
