Weekend Wrap-up

On Friday, I cleaned the house and released a new version of DDMSence. In the evening, we grilled some salmon between thunderstorms and finished the first season of Rectify.

For the 4th itself, Rebecca went on her final training hike on the AT, dodging storms until the final half hour. In the evening, we picked up a couple of growlers from Crooked Run and went to Rebecca's parents' house for pork chops and the yuppy fireworks of Lake Barcroft. Fog and smoke hovered over the lake like a sullen toddler, obscuring at least 60% of the fireworks.

The display itself was nice, but suffered from Lord of the Rings syndrome, with at least twelve different brigades that could have been mistaken for the ending. Rather than last 45 minutes with a spurt every four minutes, it would have been more finale-like had they set off everything within 15 minutes -- longer is not always better.

On Sunday, I watched Interstellar and lounged around, doing absolutely nothing useful. We had an early dinner at The V, and the place was so empty that we probably should have tried to hit Ford's Fish Shack while everyone was at the beach.

How was your holiday weekend?
