Battery, rain, and time-crunch.

Fry's didn't have a tiny little 12v battery, but the dollar store did. I was so relieved that I didn't have to go all the way to Radio Shack and get some likely-expensive battery that might not even solve the problem. And I put it in the remote and opened the apartment door and clicked the button at the car -- and it worked! The car blinked, unlocked, and then I locked it back up again.

There has been rain all this past week. V sent back an e-mail mentioning that if the remote got wet, it would stop working until it dried out inside, and that might be a problem.

The sky has been beautiful -- either covered in clouds, or entirely overcast, or the sort of patchy cloud that makes me dream of summer days in Alaska and flying. I have a very large, sturdy, black umbrella.

I have two and a half days to get everything boxed up so that Friday, Saturday, and Sunday can be un-interrupted Moving of Stuff. Eeep.
Gone away, gone ahead,
Echoes roll unanswered.
Empty, open, dusty, dead.
Why have all the Weyrfolk fled?

Where have dragons gone together
Leaving weyrs to wind and weather,
Setting herdbeasts free of tether;
Gone, our safeguards, gone, but whither?

Have they flown to some new weyr
Where cruel Threads some others fear?
Are they worlds away from here?
Why, oh why the empty weyr?
