Teh Weatherdude will be Director of the Eastern Region of National Weather Service. (Maine to South Carolina and Ohio. Yes, this was already in the works before Sandy, but we couldn't say anything.)
He begins his new job on 31 December. Miss E and I will move after the end of the school year.
Here, have a photo of Miss E in a dirndl. She likes German. (Dirndl courtesy of my family collection from 1966 when my mother had dirndls made for herself and for us. No, not a single German in my background. We were in Heidelberg at the time on a trip.)
