1) This is in part for stillsostrange, in case she needs djinni reference footage (I know I did.):
2) Hurricane Earl reaches category four in the Atlantic. If I'm offline for an extended period later this week, this would be why. This thing is kind of a monster, and feeding off warm seas. The odds are in favor of it missing us (and the rest of the North American mainland), but it's currently a strong category 4 storm with low pressures around 931 millibars, and we do get real hurricanes here, albeit infrequently, so we're keeping a... well, a weather eye on it.
It could actually be good news, if we just get the tail: we could esperately use the rain.
3) I've hit 60K on Range of Ghosts, and will be trying to another 1 or 2K today before I have to go pick up the farm share. My hands are starting to feel the strain: this much concerted typing eventually becomes uncomfortable. Moar ice!
4) It's Book Day! The mass-market paperback for By the Mountain Bound drops today.
Isn't it pretty? It raises the dead!
