11/16/2018 Suddenly weather

I still can't seem to get TWC to update so here's the new bonus comic. It's a bit annoying though, honestly, it saves me some time, which is nice these days with everything I have going on.

The weather here has been slowly cooling down for a while now, though it really hasn't been that bad. Until yesterday, when we suddenly woke up to somewhere between half an inch and an inch of snow. I'll admit that I hadn't been paying too much attention to the weather forecast, but it really came out of nowhere. It'll probably be gone by this afternoon, but it was a bit of a pain yesterday, to the point where I had to buy a snow shovel (our driveway is on a small slope and I couldn't get the car up it) and boots (I had errands to run and my shoes were getting soaked in all the slush), both things that I hadn't needed for many years. So yeah, that was "fun". Not sure whether or not we'll have any more snow days this winter (there was only around two or so the last couple of years) but at least now I'm prepared. All that said, people here are kind of wimps when it comes to snow. They shut down the universities and everything for an inch or so of snow. Back in Colorado (which I consider my home state), that much snow is barely worth a notice.

Have a good weekend!

11/14/2018 Back and forth

Last week I had a little more free time. This week, not so much since I've once again got a bunch of assignments to grade. I'm making good progress though and next week is Thanksgiving break, which should be a lot of fun. For now though, lots left to do.

Later!

11/12/2018 Air and space

Ok, finally ready to do a travelogue entry. I'll skip writing about a couple of places I wrote about before (the Renaissance Festival and the National Zoo) and just do the new one.

October 28th (Sunday): Air and Space
The Air and Space Museum in DC is one of the more famous and popular parts of the Smithsonian. However, turns out that the building there doesn't have enough room to house their entire collection. So they built a second location out near the Dulles airport. Looking at it, I'm betting they converted an old airfield. Connie heard it was good for kids, so we took Zack and her parents over there for a morning. Anyway, the museum itself is mostly made up of a massive hanger where they keep all sorts of planes, copters, and other flying vehicles. Quite a lot of them are actually experimental prototypes and such which I actually found a bit more interesting than the more ordinary ones they have at the main museum. A side section was dedicated to space craft, including a complete shuttle. There was also an IMax theater, a pretty high end looking flight simulator, and a shuttle bus to something Mars related. But we had Zack with us so I didn't really get to check any of those out. For that matter, I didn't get to look at all the aircraft on display either. I'll have to go back another time to see the rest. So what did Zack enjoy the most? While he did start to get interested in the planes eventually, his favorite part of the museum...was the call button for the elevator. Had to drag him away from it in the end. Oh well, at least he had fun.

Later!
