power outage

Dark. Dark in a way that it never really gets here -- it's kinda neat, and if we weren't so tired miss_chance and I would be out taking a walk through the neighborhood.

It's a scheduled maintenance outage, so we had some warning. Enough for me to get all set up to post this message by candle light during the outage, which amuses me much more than it ought to.

why i love october

On days like today (and yesterday) the weather reminds me of altitude.

Growing up in Southern California I spent a bunch of time in the mountains. I loved the thin, dry air; it seemed the essence of the place. Today it's as dry as it gets in Boston, warm enough to feel like a brisk day in the desert, a little windy, and very sunny and bright.
