Pictures taken as we walked back to the house to get some clothes, supplies and feed the cats. 

Just so everyone on G+ know, University of Oklahoma ( my employer ) has offered us a place to stay for a while -- we'll find out more soon.

I snuck in the back, cutting through the parking lot behind the Five-Guys and the Carl's Jr (that's it in the picture) and into the neighborhood.

I'm sorry -- I forgot to update G+. If you follow me on twitter you likely already know:

We're all safe and at my parent's house. Angela picked up Riana from school before the storm hit and rode it out in the closet.  Orthodontist appointment if you can believe it.  

The house is standing with a thick coating of debris and a 2x4 speared into the roof.

I'm going to be uploading pictures here from the cleanup.

Have been working on building a Tactical Role Playing Game (TRPG) in JavaScript using CreateJS. I'm still in the early stages -- there's not much there yet but the basic structure and a game board. 

Idea is to see if I can apply my old Flash knowledge to JavaScript/Canvas development and teach myself a bit more about the technique involved in building a game of this type. 

I'd be thrilled by thoughts, feedback or criticism you want to dump on me.

Project Intro is over here, if you want more information ( or to start at the beginning ): http://irresponsibleart.com/2013/03/trpg-in-javascript-0/

Is a QA Day! I get to relax a bit and wait for the bugs to come in. Probably do a bit of experimentation while I wait.

Oh, and I didn't write at all last night: Got half the call I'd been waiting on, and devoted time to that effort. Not a done deal, but starting to head that way...

So, yesterday my little writing experiment netted 5K words and a rough draft of a first chapter.

This may not sound all that exciting to anyone else, but I haven't sat down to write creatively in a few years. Five years would be pretty accurate -- ever since I started the work here.

I ended the evening completely exhausted, wanting to say more but unable to coherently form words.

It was completely awesome. ;-)

At Panera today, doing a bit of writing and consuming of good coffee.

Enjoying working with words like this again. Old story, but for some reason the characters are more alive for me lately.

Now I just have to finish ; )
