Too Much Smoke Inhaled

Survived the night, and actually the smoke in the immediate neighborhood is down to the point of enhancing sunrises and sunsets without otherwise impacting visibility.  I’ll try for some photographic proof of that if things remain calm.

Limited goals for today include locating enough of the law practice in the truck to bill some hours and meet some deadlines.  Might even make it to a meeting downtown, but since at least one of the other two principals for this get-together are coming from areas that have been evac’d, not certain if this will work.  Some phone tag needs to be played.

On a linguistic note, is the past participle of evac evaced?  Or should it be evac’d?  Evaced looks like the c should be soft.  Damn rule exceptions going around proving everything.  And don’t tell me evac is not a word; it’s been in common usage in the spoken language for decades, and the question holds for medevac as well.

    Well considering it’s not officially a word, I’d go with evacked. Think of picnicked or trafficked.

  2. Joe says:

    I was going to second adding the “k” and go with evacked. But how about evacced? It looks sort of Italian that way. Like bocce.

    Glad to see you safe and waxing linguistic.

    The mind’s been wandering more and more today. Focussing on reality has proven counterproductive and contraindicated. I’m liking the double c, but still pondering the options. Any more opinions out there?
