Egg on my windshield
You know those moments when you wish that life had a reset button? Janet I planned a few days on the Oregon coast on our way to Orycon. The scenery and hospitality were as great as ever, and the weather cooperated beautifully. BUT six inches of rain had fallen just before we got there. On the first day we went through some water on the highway. Next day it was obviously deeper, but everyone else seemed to be going through safely enough. Alas, our Mini Cooper rides a little closer to the pavement than most… We stalled. Where was the UNDO icon?
A Department of Highway pushed us out and we got an AAA tow to a mechanic who said he could fix it. To cut a sad story short, he couldn’t. The car is presently still there, in a hotel yard, waiting for the insurance company to get it fixed, except that they seem to have been waiting on me. And so on. We were a day late arriving at the con, and thus missed the Endeavor Award ceremony that we were going there for. (Hearty congratulations to Kristine Rausch for winning with City of Ruins.) Janet and I returned north by rental car. But we are safe and sound, which is what matters.
