That's what I get for not checking my post. Fixed now.
When he lights his streetlamp, it is as if he brought one more star to life, or one flower.
When he puts out his lamp, he sends the flower, or the star, to sleep.
That is a beautiful occupation.

I'm armed to the teeth with duct tape, cable ties, and rebar. And I have a backspace key.

Pry off the backspace key, drill a hole in it, wear it around your neck. That is how we will know you are ready to solve any problem. That is...if you remember to bring some WD-40 too.

Fandango is at 2:15 & E this year (I'm pretty sure).

BRC Weekly (me included) is at Rod's Road & 10:15 (Center Camp & Esplanade-ish). Fandango was iffy for a bit after the tickets so we registered for placement as back-up, and who's going to say no to Center Camp & Esplanade? Not us!

I guess I have to admit I'm confused.

The wino blew everyone around and they all landed on the playa, higglety-pigglety.

Am I crazy or are those readings in the future? Says Thursday & Friday Aug 23rd & 24th. I would assume they're meant to be forecasts, but I see specific wind gusts on Thursday...

Yeah.. that's a forecast taken from here: http://forecast.weather.gov/MapClick.ph ... =graphical


Interesting that they specifically forecast gusts like that.. complete with velocity and all..

Yeah pretty weird. Looks like it'll be a warm one at night, but I'm still bringing an excessive amount of warm stuff.

That site is really great. Bookmarked!

Yeah.. notice that we're not even getting below 70 until midnight! I'm actually worried that it may be a little warm at night for the costumes...

Doesn't it cool off a bit more out in the desert at night than it does in Reno?

All forecasts are mild, 90 day, 40 night, 5-20 mph winds.

I think they actually have been the whole time, and the actual weather breaks 100 degrees.
