The perfect storm.

September 6th, 2013, 9pm

It was 27°C with scattered clouds. The breeze was light.

Dust and grit whips through the air, smelling of sulfur. I hear it was a mix up at the chlorine plant west of the city. Temple Square and the surrounding blocks are packed. the light on North Temple and State is out. Traffic creeps between the buses and pedestrians. Mormons in their Sunday dress flock to the Museum, and pushing against them, headed to the conference center, are ComiCon fans: Princess Leia, Indiana Jones, Zelda, a Swiss zombie miss, and hordes of characters and enthusiasts I don’t recognize.

Cassie, David Wade and Gabrielle said thanks.

I write. I don't like shoes. I do like cheese.
