This is a summer of funerals and sitting shiva, apparently. (No condolences necessary for me personally; I'm the support team this time.) I've been mostly offline for... uh, about a week, I think? It's all sort of running together at this point.
It's also apparently a summer of hurricanes. I grew up in on Florida's Gulf Coast, about an hour north of where Hurricane Irma made its second landfall on Sunday afternoon. I spent the afternoon listening to live coverage of the storm, too tense and worried to focus on work, but I eventually managed to get my hands moving on autopilot to make a big pile of earrings to use as a fundraiser for relief efforts.
