Stormy Weather

I'm currently hunkered inside my bunker waiting out Irma, but it isn't all that bad. We're on the east coast, so we're not getting anything remotely like the full force of the storm, and the house and neighborhood I'm in were built to take hurricane weather. It's mostly reminiscent of one of a particularly blustery and rainy New York autumns, although that would be about twenty degrees cooler.

I don't think the storm is going to disrupt too much on my end. There's a business trip I have to take next week, and the sudden flood of people leaving the islands or fleeing the coasts is likely to disrupt that, but I could hardly complain too much in such a case.

Assuming power holds out, I'll be working on a bunch of different things, including the one-piece cover for the print edition of Welcome To The Fold. The first version I did turned out to have been done entirely to the wrong dimensions, so I had to scrap it and start over, but I got a nice education into the quirks of the free desktop publishing app Scribus. (Highly recommended, BTW, but it takes some work to use well.)
