We lost power last night, they just got it back on now. Lots of leaves and branches down in the yard, but quite a bit of damage to trees around Atlanta. Lots of closed roads. I'm going to play Witcher 3 some more till I can get back to work.

Whoa...overnight rain.

I must remember this explicitly for next late March, after it has been raining incessantly for weeks on end. Remind myself how thankful I can be for even a modest rainfall enough to wet the pavement.

It is not yet enough to suppress the fire still raging east of town, but it has suppressed the smoke and is helping the fire crews obtain more mastery. More rain is forecast; so much so that some are worried about slope stability issues in the now denuded areas of of the Gorge.

But right now, it smells so good. The smoke is gone. The temperatures are still 'shirt sleeve', but not stultifying. The pavement is damp and there is a light breeze. This is blissful.

It's supposedly only 79F here right now, but I'm pretty sure it's at least 400 degrees more than that.

We were up in the mountains Friday and Saturday, and it actually got a little chilly, which only served as a cruel reminder of how dumb and hot it is here.

The high yesterday was I think 95F, but today, it was about 55F, and it's been raining pretty steadily for a few hours now, which is perfect right now. I pretty much spend all summer just biding my time because hot weather kills me. I can't sleep right, so I'm tired, I'm extra stupid, and I feel just vaguely ill the whole time. Also, the dogs have been all full of beans all day, partying extra hard, playing rolicking games of full house biteyface. This is just exactly what we needed.

So I am making a big pot of vegetable soup, then later, I'm going to enjoy a little bit of a jazz musician's cigarette for insurance and sleep like a bag of motherfuckers.

It is snowing, and IN CASE YOU DIDN'T NOTICE, our power was out until ELEVEN AM. I got woken up by a transformer blowing at six something I guess, and then I was like a caveman until just a little bit ago!

I get to wear my cool snowboots, though.

It’s too fucking cold.

No, it’s not Midwest cold or Buffalo cold or even Pennsylvania cold. It’s California cold, and that’s too fucking cold for me, a California native in California.

It's too hot here. We had a couple of normal days, but it's warming up again.

None of this is any fair.

So. Y'all have had snow. The north of England has had snow (surprise). Germany, the Netherlands, Luxembourg have had snow.

Finally, London gets snow, and in short order I find on Facebook excited* posts from former colleagues (and still Londoners) originally from Greece, Spain, New Zealand and Lithuania.

* Make that very excited.

And one from Leesifer worrying about getting to work tomorrow.

I caught the bus into town to visit the bank. The bank was closed, for no good reason in my opinion as all the other shops and banks are open. Now I'm on the bus back home but the driver foolishly pulled in to an ice covered bus stop on a hill, and we've been stuck here now for twenty minutes. I think a better driver could get us out but this driver seems to have no clue as to how to pull away on an icy surface. :(

Obviously the bank manager, or the security guard with the only keys, was on this bus driver's earlier route.
