Busy day. Many goings on. Need to jump on the commercial stuff tomorrow and see if I can't make strides before the next surge comes through.

Temps not bad today, but air was awful. Lots of soot riding in on the jet stream. Couldn't see the mountains for the third day straight. Glad fall comes early in Wyoming. They need some snow up there to help tamp down the fire. Heard the Eagle Creek fire out in Oregon might have been started by a fifteen year old. What a tragedy.

Made good progress on the new story, but haven't finished it yet. Took a peek at an older untitled piece, too. It's got the legs to be a longer story, and maybe even a novel, but I'll have to get serious about outlining it before I take that leap.

Gloomy night owning to the haze. Gonna make a drink and settle in.
