Google put together this little movie from pictures I took this weekend on my trip to the Olympic National Forest. BTW, if you can, go.

Google also created this album - I haven't touched the pictures on my camera yet. These are from my phone - https://goo.gl/photos/VtyekWAB1BWREnmSA

Ridiculously Resilient Ridge
+Daniel Swain has been my goto weather scientist during this El Nino and the current drought in Southern California. His blog is posted infrequently but is meaty and the discussion on his posts and especially his twitter feed have been very educational.

Please note that this blog post summarizes peer-reviewed research that has been published in Science Advances. This means that findings presented in the following article are the product of a formal investigation by a team of scientists, which contrasts with more typical California Weather Blog posts that are primarily based upon my own informal thoughts…

It's Here! Help me spread the word!

Rather than give you the usual -- which would be a snippet to make you frost your shorts -- I thought I'd share with you what some of the early readers had to say...

"I did not see the end coming."
"Fast and furious (with just enough slower scenes to let you go to the bathroom before the next!)"
"I hate you so much right now."
"I was totally blown away by the big reveal."
"Fuck you, you evil bastard. Also, well done."
"[The story is] astounding and devastating."
"I feel so much for Xana. There's no one like her in anything you've read."
"I'm drooling."
"Why isn't everyone reading this series??"
"I am totally recommending people buy every single book in this series. I loved it that much."

And some favorite lines from this episode:
"People who use cheat codes all the time don't really like gaming. They like winning. And that's different."

"My team doesn't need saving."

"The nun at my school said I held God like a fiery lover. With passion one day. With rage the next. I knew He was so great, but I couldn't understand why He would do this. Not to me. To my son. Leave him without a mother."

"Boss-woman’s got a clit hard-on for whoever we’re after like I ain’t never seen."

"Who?"
"The nice people duct-taped in the closet."

"[Wink] imagines stuff no well-adjusted adult ever would, even another genius."

"...rained salad and condiments on the street."

"Time is not a vine. It is a bramble. It erupts from the present like tangled string."

"Did you really think that a geek, a dyke, a kid, and a cripple were going to ... what? Save the world?"

The ebook is up pretty much everywhere. The paperback is available on my website and through the CreateSpace store and will be filtering out to other sales channels over the next couple days.

Here is the direct link:

Story
Introduction
I asked my daily chat group to make a list of things to help me here and this is what they came up with. I think it's pretty good:

----------------------------------------------------------------------
question. I want to flesh out my G+ profile with a list of words that describe me. What would you use to describe me?

· Enthusiastic Lego Aficionado – I have a plethora that I store in my son’s room

· Desert Sherpa of the West – I’m more comfy in the desert 2 miles from car in August than in Downtown LA

· Hermit in training – see above

· Zen Fatherhood Trainee – emphasis on trainee

· Hopeful explorer – this surprised me, but it is true

· River Tramp – no not that river, the other one.

· Most Likely to Fall Down a Mountainside....trying to save his GPS - <nodding>

· Reluctant urbanite...because it's where the WiFis are – ugh, rite!

· Jeep Whore – cause what a Jeep really is…is freedom.

· Nerdasaurus – that’s where all the action is

· !!! yes that :) – yup, it’s twoo

· Bird feeder filler – I have four. I sit on the porch and watch them instead of tv.

· Parakeet wrangler – he did whistle the storm trooper death march for a couple days.

· Cat serf - pwned (I have a hamster too. Don't tell them)

· Future Owner of an Awesomely Obedient and playful border collie – yes please

· Denier of Caffeine (though he keeps coming back for more) – the black cat next to the black dog in the corner
