The Gate is open *sigh*

…and now the perimeter around the Man base has been lowered. I guess this event is on.

For the first time I feel a sense of dread as Gate opens to the line of dim and distant headlights stretching out to Gerlach. It feels like the city is already populated enough and that it is about to be changed forever. Like it is every morning. But now, so much more so. I miss the relative solitude of being a single outpost on the Esplanade with nothing but the DPW Ghetto in hearing range. I know these next several days are going to probably going to fly past even faster than the past 10.
