Hurricane Dodging

Zoe and I went home to visit my family on the East Coast, and although we endured a hurricane, tons and tons of (non-hurricane-related) rain, and the very real possibility of aftershocks from the recent earthquake, we had a fairly uneventful and very lovely time. We went to the beach and played lots of cards, some kitchen-table-tennis, and a bit of bocce ball. We also went to Floyd, VA to visit some friends that I haven't seen in a long time, one of whom just had a new baby: Atticus Kai. Oh me, oh my!
