Back from Vacation

Arrrr! I'm back from vacation.

Bad weather tends to follow me around wherever I go. The sun had a very active week, firing off two of the most powerful solar flares ever recorded. They came from sunspot <ahem> 486. I couldn't view the aurora because it was cloudy all the time — sigh! I returned to Oregon on Saturday night, and Sunday morning it was snowing here. But nooo, it didn't snow in Iowa while I was there...

Fire and Ice. Feels like 1998 all over again. :)

At work I had a smaller e-mail backlog than I anticipated — only about 500 messages. After deleting the spam and the automated notification messages, there were only about 300 I cared about. It still took 2.5 hours to get through it all, and there are quite a few things I need to follow up on during normal business hours.

I have a lot of stuff to write about.
