Oh well, time for a pre-bedtime cup of tea, I think
Yay!

Sweet dreams when you get there.

Meanwhile, Coffee . . . .

We had our first frost this morning. Officially it didn't get below 37, but I had frost on the lawn. I won't know how damaging it was until I get home this afternoon.

The big ballooning event officially ended yesterday, but there were still dozens of balloons flying this morning.

I was so distracted when I left home that I left my travel mug of coffee behind. Now I'm drinking a cup made from the beans that have been sitting in my office since last winter. I dumped the beans. The coffee is awful.

Well, according to the News, Ireland is suffering (4 dead so far). Some parts of Wales are experiencing downed trees (it's not nice when it's your car's under it) and there are the usual "Power outages" (we used to call it "mains failure") and "schools have been closed as a precaution" (perhaps the local councils do not want the responsibility?), drivers of high-sided vehicles are advised to stay off certain roads and bridges, and householders advised to check any garden furniture and maybe tie it down.

If this storm moves a few miles East, I'm in serious trouble.

Now then, where's that damned coffee pot gone . . . . ?

Good luck and stay safe old friend. Has anyone warned our Miss Professor in Wales to tie her tits down there's going to be a blow?

The coffee pot is where it always is, on the back counter. Put your glasses on.

The house guest and housemate are shopping today so i have some quiet writing time until they return. Not that they are noisy when around, just distracting in a naked sort of way.

A warm, dry early afternoon here in the Shitty of San Narcisco. (That's San Fran to you furriners.) After yesterday's playings with grandkids and feastings on the celeb-chef son-in-law's ruinations of of our diets, we awoke late in our downtown Wyndham hostelry. The in-room coffee isn't too bad as long we double-up on grounds and add sweet cocoa. Damn, should have brought rum.

So we're about to go staggering across Union Square and up (and down) into Chinatown again. We'll likely emerge with many dried mushrooms, a PK-mount camera lens, several silly toys, and maybe some carved jade stuff. We might be floating in green tea, too. Could happen.

Our Miss Professor in Wales is well aware of the perils, I believe.
<changes glasses> Oh is that where you hid the coffee pot ?
Sorry, Reading glasses don't seem to work at any distance over about twice arms length. I must try to remember that.

And no camera ??(I do not count that thing on a even the most modern 'phone as a camera).
What PK lenses do you need ?

I don't know about your schools, but in the US, schools often closed in case of major emergencies for two reasons. One, parents and children feel better if they are together; and two, the schools are often opened as refuge centers for those people that lose power or have to evacuate. Schools usually have generators that back up their electricity and they have a supply of emergency materials. I know my school was required to have barrels of water, first aid supplies, flashlights, blankets etc. I am not positive but I think they also kept MREs in the emergency bins. School employees are considered first responders and, if not at school already, are required to report to their school or the nearest school they can access. If the children are at the school when the emergency occurs, they must be kept there until a parent comes for them.

I already possess some and yes, they're larger than cigarette packs.

'Need' is rather a stretch as 66 PK-mount lenses currently own me. I'd like to replace the Vivitar-Kiron 24/2 whose aperture won't stop-down but I'm not likely to find such among the Grant Avenue discounters and sucker-trolls. I'll just see what jumps out and bites me.

Out here in semi-rural country, they also become livestock refuges and wildlife rescue centers. Articles from Sonoma County talk of schoolyards becoming "Noah's Arks".

now I'm remembering all the bomb drills we used to go through when I was in school, heading under the desks.
Certainly wouldn't fit there anymore

I got tossed out of school for three days when i wouldn't get under my desk. Well, maybe it was what I told the teacher.

"Miss Whateverthefuckhernamewas, this little metal and wood desk isn't going to do a danged thing when that bomb goes off across the river at Barksdale. (SAC Headquarters for the AirFarce) We'll still be a puff of dust on a hot radioactive wind."

She nor the Principle particularly liked facts unless they gave them. Not to mention, I probably scared the rest of the class to death.

I had way too much information for my age. The result of spending a Summer reading the encyclopedia. The whole encyclopedia.

I remember looking at the scrawny desks then the classic mushroom cloud black and white news reels then back to the desks thinking "They're funny."
But for once I kept my opinions to myself.

Point of order. The SAC Headquarters were at Offutt, outside Omaha. SAC no longer exists due to post-cold war reorganization.

Before I looked up Barksdale, I didn't even know that B-52s existed anymore outside of museums (and old recordings).

I grew up near Cannon, Walker, and Ellsworth SAC bases. I think Cannon still exists, but I don't know what they're doing. Walker (famous for the Roswell ET episode) was closed in the 1960's. Ellsworth is still there but they fly B-1s, and they're probably no more than a 10th of what they were in the 1970s.

Maxwell and Gunter (both at Montgomery, Alabama) still exist, but only for training. My youngest daughter had the fairly bizarre experience of dancing a ballet at Maxwell, with a mothballed B-52 as the backdrop to the stage. I saw the video. It was odd.

I checked Google Earth on Ellsworth and was shocked. They had an on-base population of about 25,000, but the large neighborhoods where I once drove a school bus to a Catholic school in the adjacent town are all gone now. Apparently the houses and apartments were picked up and moved rather than destroyed.

I'm fairly comfortable with the idea that we no longer need such a massive nuclear presence. Unfortunately, that probably just means that we're now a more efficient world-destroying machine, not a weaker one.

Cassels Book of World Knowledge in 8 volumes - about 1930. For a kid on a farm in the 60's with no TV (Parents didn't like 'em) this was the most amazing book imaginable - a lot of print with brown sepia photographs, I read every word of it, it was my wonderland.

I grew up 30 miles east of downtown Los Angeles, 4 miles east of a missile plant, and 30 miles west of two significant US Air Force bases. All my future in-laws worked at that missile plant. Everyone in the area knew that nukes would be the end. "Duck-and-cover" never made it to my grammar schools. Why bother?

No, when hell falls from the skies, it'll be best to be right underneath, looking up, sipping a nice cuppa something. Irish coffee, right.
