Quiet

New Bern, NC

It has been hot and very quiet here the past few days.   Actually, I found the quiet to be a dissapointment.

First, there was the biker convention.   Well, the days of Hell's Angels style biking have changed (or aged) a lot.   This was a family crowd of Harley bikers.   They brought their children and grandchildren.  They burned a little rubber in the parking lot doing stunts, but otherwise it was very quiet.  By 9 PM they were all in bed with lights out.

Next there was the end of the world with all the debauchery promised to follow.  Well, you know how that turned out.

Turns out that the biggest event for us this weekend was me riding 6 miles away to go to the store and having the chain on my bicycle break when I was out there.  It was a long walk back.  Fortunately, I made it back before the full blast of midday sun.

I've been sitting at the computer, editing and writing articles for the next Westsail newsletter this weekend.  Actually, sitting in the air conditioned lounge is a great way to escape the heat.  By the way, the heat is an urgent reminder that we need to restart our northward migration.
