Was just sweeping leaves at 2 a.m.: admittedly strange, but there was a big leaf fall from the high winds and the ground was still dry, so the work was still easy. It just started sprinkling. The first significant storm of the winter is here!
Good wishes to Ron McRae, who will attempt to cross the Sierra Nevada tomorrow in the teeth of the howling blizzard in order to enjoy an evening of civilized discussion with Vince Gilligan at the Mondavi Center in Davis. Hoping he doesn't get waylaid at Donner Pass and forced to eat too many fellow travelers.
