There’s probably a Home Ec manual from the 50s that gives idiot bachelors like me useful domestic advice, like “the day you’re flying out of town is not the best day to clean out and defrost your refrigerator.” Unfortunately, I’ve never read that manual. Hopefully this thing will finish draining before my plane takes off.

At any rate, I’ll be back home Tuesday night, hopefully with some thoughts (and perhaps pictures) from the Great Northwest. Of course, they may have heard of things like the Internet in Portland; you never know. If I can find a connection while I’m out there, I’ll try and post something from the road.
