Burned out

No, that’s not a 420 reference — unfortunately last Thursday, there was a fire at the Felton Trading Post, where my office is located. The fire ripped through the front of the story, wiping out most of Kelly’s and Melanie’s inventory, but left my office and the back of the store unscathed (save for a smoky scent reminiscent of a barbeque that many of the machines now have).

With no power for the next two weeks, at the least, I had to move out and back into my home. And for those of you who have been keeping score at home, I rented office space because having seven computers in the living room was a bit cramped, and my better half Kyoko, who is showing annoyance after being a paragon of patience (she married me, right?), is not exactly pleased.

Now I’m looking for new space, but first since it’s Veterans Day — thank you to all those who serve our nation, by the way — the family is going to take a drive down to Monterey for a visit to the aquarium.

    Hey man, very sorry to hear the bad news. Much luck finding a replacement location fast, and even more luck keeping the wife happy. ;)

    Thanks, ronocdh — it may not be as bad as it sounds, as the office may be inhabitable again in a couple of weeks. In the meantime, I need a place with electrical power, and it seems that home will work for now.
