Four hours' sleep ought to do it, right? Yeah! More coffee!
The butt end of Tropical Depression Ivan is booming and dumping ropes of rain on us right now and knocking out the satellite dish reception. Fortunately, Weather Underground works as well as ever, so I can see that Ivan's shuffling off to Albany already. He best be out in half an hour, that's all I can say, because I am walking down that damn hill rain or shine. Kickabutt is non optional today: they're closed Sunday as usual and Monday is board breaking, so regular classes are cancelled, and I leave Tuesday for the midwest leg of the tour.8:31 AM
