The UK gets an extra hour in bed tonight because the clocks go back. Hope I can get to sleep OK, took ages last night!

Thanks for the reminder. I'd completely forgotten about that!

Sandy has come and gone, and Gossamer, Penelope, and I are safe, warm, and electrified. I'm working from home today and hearing little about local catastrophe. Happily sustaining myself on goodies from the Mediterranean Bakery.

Last night the moon was very bright behind blue-gray clouds that kept rolling across the sky, and my girls glimpsed a very faint rainbow as one large cloud rolled across the moon (do we call these moonbows?). I wish I had been able to take a picture of it. I wonder what sort of folklore has been inspired by these lunar rainbows?

I think something similar happened here recently, I remember seeing it in the paper. I'm sure there's a scientific explanation for it, but the folklore ones always sound nicer :)

Ludmilla, that sounds genuinely marvelous. Phenomena like that for some reason just awe and fill me with such joy.

Thanks Diane. I've made three days in a row and I'm actually a tiny bit ahead. Not looking to set any records, but I do want to get the draft finished. It's the same one I was working on last year. The first 50,000 words weren't enough. Still lots of plot left. :)
