Can’t remember the last time I’ve heard this many sirens going off here in Lake County. #ilwx
Exercised the "never say no to contractors moving up an install" rule. (window contractors had a cancellation, so they're showing up at 8am tomorrow!!). #remodeling
I realize it’s against the law to post a twitter link on Masto, but there’s a a couple of ginormous wildfires raging in the Texas panhandle, necessitating the evacuation of two towns, and I couldn’t find any info here. Crappily, twitter remains relevant during disasters.
Note: I’m in no danger personally, these fires are hundreds of miles from here. But i know only too well how it feels when that huge wall of brown smoke heads at you; a few years ago a wildfire came within 2 miles of my front gate and it still freaks me out.

#BREAKING: Watch Duty has emergency deployed in Texas ahead of schedule due to the horrific wind-driven fires in the #Texas Panhandle. We can’t sit idly by and watch another town overrun by wildfire without giving communities life-saving information needed to make informed decisions. Be safe! #txwx #txfire
Today I was in Woodland, CA, which is the county seat of Yolo County. Many UC Davis folks live there as the rents & home prices are cheaper. It has a teensy bit of influence from Davis regarding cycling, but outside of its pre-automobile downtown, it is a fairly typical rural industry sprawl town.
This was the lovely walk I got to take while waiting for a repair. Note the developer annexing the entire sidewalk on the left. Where do wheelchair users go? Note how WIDE that stroad is #CarCentrism
