I'm safely and happily all the way home. The 140-mile drive from the Bronx barely qualifies as a roadtrip, but it turned out to be enough of a driving adventure to earn the appellation.

Heavy rain hit the Saw Mill shortly before I was on it. The road was throughly wet with a few puddles good for soaking the brakes, but none of the flooding that parkway is so prone to. I counted myself lucky and drove on.

Last night, debgeisler mentioned the smoky skies from forest fires in Quebec that welcomed benveniste and her home. This morning, I saw a report that the smoky haze stretched all the way down into Rhode Island and Connecticut. I can tell you it wasn't limited to northern Connecticut. Not only did the haze make for interesting vistas on the drive north, the view in my rear view mirror around New Haven was as smoky as the road ahead.

I drove just to the east of another large storm. That much black at 4 pm is just plain wrong this close to the solstice.

My storm-avoidance luck ran out just past exit 67 on Hwy 84. Deluge, with lightning. Lots of lightning. Most of it was aimed straight down. Yowser.

I moved into the right lane, put my flashers on, and slowed down to 40-45 mph for all but the last mile or two before exit 70 and my road home. For the first couple of miles, a mere 5 cars passed me in the other two lanes. Even they weren't going much over 50, and this on a road where I get passed a lot when I'm doing 75.

The Zeppelin Hangar is still standing, though the garage circuit breaker had tripped. It's done that 2 other times in 6 years. Hmmm. No sign of interior power problems. No sign of any brownies either, alas. I'd most welcome the brownies who clean and organize houses. I'm still full enough from the weekend that it's even easy to say that.

Ditto. I've had trips on 84 that were just like that!

Welcome to LiveJournal, acethepoet!

To answer your question, I've been at least somewhat active on LiveJournal for most of 7 years, and quite active in science fiction fandom for more than 25. I became friends with all of the people who posted responses on this same thread thanks to fandom.

Good luck with your book. And, hey, I have the Glee soundtrack album, too. :-)
