Back to reality

They're gone. I can start to relax.

I do love my family but they drive me absolutely bonkers sometimes.

I might finally get a full night's rest soon. That'll be nice.

Work has been mixed. Today way very good. Got final sign-off on one medium-sized but hugely tricky project (these three if() statements must be arranged in this precise way, and here's twelve paragraphs of comments explaining why).

The Sound Transit board has released thier proposal (to be made official tomorrow) of the preferred alignments for East Link (light rail). I must say that I am very pleased with their choices. It tries to reduce neighborhood impact while not turning the route into a roller-coaster, doesn't tear up all of downtown Bellevue, if fast with good ridership and coverage, and if the city wants to pony up the money then it'll even be a tunnel. Yay full grade separation!

Just 65 days until the first light rail segment opens!

I expect to catch up on LJ shortly. Tonight will be me continuing to watch B5 (midst of season 3!).
