Tonight was one of those nights when my brain demanded that I go to sleep for a while before trying to do anything else. I slept for four hours. If I can get this entry in really really quickly, I can end up with seven and a half for the night.
Teresa Nielsen Hayden has posted a long set of answers to my questions about disemvoweling over on Making Light. It's great stuff, refuting everything Mark claims, with examples. It puts me in a quandary, though. The Disemvoweling article has stabilized, at least for now, and nothing further about all this was posted today on Wikipedia by Mark or the Wikipedia advocate or anyone else. For tonight, at least, I'm not going to disturb the peace.
"Is that a dust storm rolling in?" my co-worker asked tonight, long after most people had left for the day. I rushed to the window and got these pictures:
Yes, there was a huge dust cloud on the horizon, seemingly as tall as the Catalina Mountains themselves. Immediately outside there was rain and wind. I took a little digital footage of water blowing west across the parking lot, but I haven't looked at it yet.
My co-worker hasn't been here during the summer monsoon yet. I showed him some posted pictures from last summer. He was suitably impressed.
The roof line in this last shot is the top of my building. I took this picture when I finally left work tonight.
These are all the words I'm going to string together for you tonight. Catch you Thursday night, not so late this time. Meanwhile, don't forget to sign up for the latest Round Robin Photo Challenge, "Flower Power." I'll tell you more about that in a day or two.
