I mean, I love living here and all, but the flakes are massive, like cat-shredded toilet paper. Was away in Charlottesville and DC--I would have been thrilled with a lot less but the weather was all Watteau autumnal, non-sloppy foilage, pedestrian friendly. Great to see everyone at the convention. As usual, too little time and not enough time w/ everyone. Panoply of books, oh yeah!
