Off to San Francisco and the Bay Area For the Next FIve Days ...

OK, I didn't get a chance to post the entry I wanted to post -- namely, an overview of yesterday's stormy day with precipitation (rainfall) amounts. It looks like for March 21st, KDCA picked up 1.96" and KBWI 1.74" -- neither were daily records -- while KIAD received 2.69" -- which I think was both a daily record and the most ever for a single day in March.

Today features some additional squally rain showers / low-topped thunderstorms associated with a frontal passage.

I'm in a hurry to get to the airport (National Airport, that is), for my flight this evening to San Francisco via Denver. This is for my planned weekend in the city that I frontend-arranged ahead of next Tuesday's workshop at SLAC (in Menlo Park) that I am attending as a notetaker.

I don't know what my internet situation will be while away including at the little "boutique" hotel in which I am staying near the wharf area, nor in the place in San Carlos on Monday night to Tuesday. And even if I have internet access in either or both of those places, I hardly want to spend my time there blogging.

Anyway, I need to go. I'm already running late trying to finish laundry and pack and get to the Metro to get to the airport.

That being the case, I'm signing off now with the proviso that I might not have another entry until next Friday (March 29th). That is, even though I return on Wednesday, I have another conference to attend on Thursday and won't time to post anything until next Friday.

Before I go, here is a funny and appropriate headline from the BBC last July: San Francisco: Where a six-figure salary is 'low income' .
