Walk in the Rain
Oddly enough, it has been quite rainy here in Charleston the last few days. Right now it is pouring to beat the band outside, and whenever the weather gets like this I can't help but think of a certain song from the anime "Cowboy  Bebop." The wet conditions almost brought me to grief the other day, as a matter of fact. I was driving to work through a cloudburst when my windshield wipers failed. To say the least, it was quite an exciting time! I managed to effect a repair, of sorts, but Lord only knows how long it is going to last. Ah, the joys of owning an old car.

In other news, The Boat is down again. Oddly enough, nothing on the boat itself has broken this time around. Instead, the shore power substation on the pier went up in smoke. This equipment is actually owned by the local utility company, not the Navy, and the rumor is that the utility company has estimated two weeks to repair the damaged equipment. This will make it much more difficult for me to qualify by 20 October, especially since the boat is scheduled to go down on 4 October for a planned maintenance period. Ah, the joys of working in an old submarine.

All that aside, I've been plowing ahead with my model project. I've got an update for you on that below, and it is a bit more meatier than the last one. I am still hoping to have this little project wrapped up before I move, and it look like I just might make it!
