From the first, I had known that Temeraire's divine wind - his roar, which has, in the past, broken up air ships built by the French which had been carried over by dragons - was devastating, but I'm afraid that I didn't know entirely how devastating until last night.

An entire French frigate, 44 guns, swallowed by the sea. All hands on still on deck; not a soul could be saved. I'm afraid I dreamed of far too many lost lives last night, on both sides. Morgan was still just a boy.

Finally had a long overdue meeting with the head of the history department yesterday morning. My “extended vacation” has come to an end and I’ll be back teaching at UC:Irvine this September.

Defending the county and waiting for the next shoe to drop has been fun and all, but I'm really looking forward to getting back in a classroom.
