It looks like most of the west coast is getting this heavy weather. kightp reports Corvallis is looking bad. My housemate in Santa Cruz wrote to me that the storms are getting ferocious anew. I tried calling songteller (Buffalo) in Oakland but the rains are so bad there that his phone line is swamped in line static.
Buffalo wrote something interesting in his journal: "Is this a valuable tool or a seductive invitation to a bunch of pseudo-relationships? Or, just a waste of time?" I think back to the many friends who I met virtually, and the goodly percentage of them who I eventually met in realspace, and I have to say, yes, it was and remains a wonderful way to stay in contact with my friends, and to meet new folks too. Yes, there is always the problem of fraud, but I find it a managable risk.
Oh, while gliding through the Crystal Wind a few moments ago, I came across Callahan's Card Deck, and in there I found some old images of our younger selves.
