Barbara and I finally took the Capital Hauntings tour on our second try; last week's was cancelled because of rain, and while it rained briefly during this evening's walk, it wasn't hard enough to make the guide cancel it. The Washington DC walk turned out to be better written and organized than the Ottawa one, with some care given to telling stories in a satisfying order that led to some sort of conclusion or overriding impression. However, the guide wasn't equipped with a cape and lantern, which would have added a lot to the mood on this cloudy and thundery day. The tour took about an hour and a half, but didn't cover much territory, only going over a few blocks around Lafayette Square and ending on the sidewalk in front of the White House.
When I got home, I then stayed up until midnight finishing off and posting the latest python-dev summary, and also setting up a temporary archive for them.
