No FC 4 Me

FC starts today and I won't be there. It's only the 2nd time in 15 years that I have missed the con, but my overall feeling is "meh." I traveled so much last year that I just didn't feel like doing another big roadtrip. Last year also showed me that I can have a great time with my homies without going to a con. This year I want to visit my Mom a couple of times and perhaps do a few long weekends. Next year Kitty and I have kicked around the idea of trying out something new like Furry Fiesta or maybe FWA. Of course a return to FC would also be in the works. Meh. I have my new garden space at home, so maybe I'll concentrate on becoming Farmer Bear.

BTW...We finally got rain yesterday! It has been over 3 months since the last measurable precip at the airport. I think we tied the record for 5th driest period in over 100 years. Our snowpack is sitting at 2nd worst in 38 years, even drier than one of the worst years ever back in 2002. Unless we get some storms, we'll be burning big time come Spring/Summer.
