First Thoughts

… HCR meter: she took the night off…

… Hurricane Henri… wobbled a little east overnight… i think impacts on the Hudson Valley will be minimal, however, it looks like Block Island will take a direct hit… they should be without power for days, hopefully not much worse than that… hopefully H and her mother will be ok…

… i expected at least a little wind and rain when i woke up… i closed all the windows before going to bed… crickets and cicada this AM, cloudy, moon peaking through… could still happen…

… thinking about my dad… thinking about visiting him and mom… wondering if he will live until then… wondering about being with him in his last weeks… sad/bitter… i don’t think i am the child he wants to see at the end, but that’s how the dice rolled… at least i can be helpful and comforting to Mom… i imagine if he felt better he would be annoyed about having to leave with me around…

… watched more of Bosch last night… finished the first season… the plot lines are decent though genre formulaic… the sexual situations aren’t explicit enough for my taste… i like to watch… the whole damaged, rogue but genius male detective routine has been done so many ways, good and bad… Luther and Marcella strike me as having done it better… Bosch is in the tradition of crime novels from the last century… i don’t really get into any of the characters…

… a look at HudsonValleyWeather.com… HV will escape worst effects, though heavy rain possible-likely… Henri did not rapidly intensify over night, so a not so dangerous category 1… Dark Sky shows five inches of rain over next couple of days… we rarely get the amounts it predicts… should make for a pretty intense rapids at the Roundhouse…
