Howard Hughes and the Recurring Deep Freeze

We got snow yesterday. Almost all day. So we got...some inches. It's still here today. Currently, it's 17˚F in Providence, with the windchill at -3˚F. And we have a huge storm that may be headed our way.

Yesterday, after a trip through the snow to the post office on Thayer Street, Spooky and I read through Chapter One of Interstate Love Song again. And then I proofread "Objects in the Mirror," which will be appearing in the Subterranean Press anthology The Weight of Words. Today, I have to make a trip out into the cold to go to the pharmacy, and then I have to type up the corrections to both Chapter One and "Objects in the Mirror." Either today or tomorrow I will begin work on Chapter Two of the novel.

Yesterday, Spooky made fabulous black-eyed peas, and last night I had very good RP with an RP acquaintance in Oklahoma.

And here is a piece of news to all those who have wondered: Josh Boone and Mid-World Productions have passed on renewing their option on The Red Tree and The Drowning Girl, which expired this month (or last, I'm unsure). I am grateful to Josh, who has been, and continues to be, immensely supportive of my work, and he and I still hope to someday bring my fiction to the screen. Sometimes, things just don't work out. Meanwhile, I have been approached by another production company and will be meeting with them next week. I'll post details if and when I have them and may.

Today is my mom's birthday, and I wish I were there in Leeds to celebrate it with her.

Here are the photos I promised from Thursday night at the Savoy in Westerly. I'll post photos of yesterday's snow in tomorrow's entry.

Now that's a beautiful bookstore. Wish mine looked like that!

New Zealand has been hit by a tempest. High winds and 9cm of rain yesterday. Floods, power cuts, and we have to conserve water, because silt levels are getting too high to treat.

An article in the NZ Herald claims it was partly caused by AGW, and points out that extreme weather is part and parcel of it. Sigh.
