Rain, Earthquakes and Flooding

The end times are nigh! Well, maybe not, but I'm finally getting around to posting. The first part of the week, I was still getting over whatever it was. So I didn't get much done. Then I lost some sleep when the earthquake woke us up. I probably would have rolled over and passed out, but the lady has never been in an earthquake before, so we sat up talking about it for a bit. I haven't been in one for a little while, but am still somewhat used to the whole thing growing up in San Diego. Nothing too bad, but I still remember one in particular that shook hard enough that things were falling off counters, smashing on the floor, and pictures were coming off the walls. I just remembered being frustrated that that one also woke me up in the middle of the night. Ahh earthquakes, hardly ever considerate.

But luckily(?) it was rainy and gross on my days off, so I got some good work done. The fillets are slowly being filed and sanded smooth, and the seat stays are mitered and ready to go. I've just got to check/align the chain stays and things should be ready to rock. A few more details, and she'll be ready for paint. I'm hoping to be done by the end of this coming week. Hoffmeyer, just let me know sometime about the paint. Gloss white right? I haven't heard back about the down tube stickers yet, so that may have to be put on later. But otherwise, things are coming together.

The bottom bracket junction has been one of the longest steps. So many curves to smooth out.

Seat stays looking good.

Dropout miters on the seat stays went quicker than the chain stays. I think I'm getting used to working with them.

AH HA! I've disarmed Seagal with my mad filing skills! If only I knew the art of snapping wrists, this would be the time to strike!

Ja ja ja, thanks man.
