Day 703: indoors again

Day 703:

There’s a very loud thunderstorm overhead and I’ve decided swinging metal tools over my head in this weather is a bad idea.

The nice part is that I don’t need to surface from my mining every few hours to see if it’s still there. It’s doing a very good job of telling me and I’m at least two stories underground.

The not-as-nice part about it is that I’m not outside cleaning up and there could be murderers creeping up on my home again even as I’m writing this.

But at least digging where I am (about a half a story under the river) is safer than digging under lava. Which is good because I’ve gotten drenched twice.
