New Years Morning, Twenty-Ten

Woke up around 07:00 this morning I expect more or less by habit. Took Houdini out for his constitutional to wet if not soaked ground. The weather forecast includes rain. Went to be after midnight; did stay up for the ‘end of the decade’ with Herself. We didn’t go out, as she’s in her pre-event mode for this year’s Iron Chef Trimaris. Overall a pleasant evening, though Houdini did stress a bit just after midnight when closer neighbors started busting caps with something fairly hefty, at least shotgun.

I worked on the photo data, got two of the ‘cards’ updated with the background info using ViewNX. It proved somewhat slow, on the files which are on the external hard drive. Hmm. I may need to amend that. This may be on the internal hard drive, not yet the external(s). Hmm, no, there are definitely files on the external HD with a modified date after midnight.

It Is Raining

Not at tropical storm strength, still very definitely raining. And we’ve heard a bit of thunder with lightning, only a bit. So we’re staying indoors for a time. Though we will need to head out at least to feed the kid in a bit. Houdini is with me in Office, and sat up after the thunder. He’s laid down again, still touching my foot.

Herself is now awake and tells me the rain started far earlier, so the gap when Houdini and I went out is between the storms. She’s waiting a bit as she plans to be off to SCA, the third annual Iron Chef Trimaris today. Loading the truck in wet is a bit of a bother. However, she does possess packing sufficient to get things onto the truck and relatively dry before we lay down the tarp and net over all.

Flickr is acting odd, and I suspect the rain is the actual culprit. Weather does interfere with Sky Interwebz when it is thick enough, and portions of this clutter could well be thick enough. So no Pic’o’Day just yet.
