storage unit, rain damage
Just spent 6 hours going through our storage unit because the rain Thursday morning flooded into it. Lots of soggy stuff, and me wanting to just pitch lots of things and Val wanting to carefully sort things, set things aside for Goodwill, etc. All complicated by a lot of the stuff having belonged to her late brother and thus being all emotionally triggery. Emotional as well as physical labor.

Had back to back to back meetings for most of the morning and afternoon.

After essentially no rain for 6 weeks at the end of the summer, we've now had it ~ 3 times in two weeks. It's been raining for the last couple hours and we're supposed to get a tropical storm out of the Pacific hitting us on Thursday. I guess this is going to be one of those wet falls that everything loves.
I'm using a Pilot Vanishing Point for my work notes today, and I must say I'd forgotten how satisfying the *chunk* sound of the mechanism is as you extend the nib to start making a note and retract it when you're done.
Winter veg planted. Mostly. There’s still garlic and lettuce, but the garlic should wait a few weeks and I think the lettuce is waiting for the fall tomatoes and melons to get out of the way. @plants

Didn’t finish the fries. Will probably regret finishing as much as I did, but the Diablo Burger was tasty and something I would probably not have thought to order myself.
