Just heard from the roommate. Looks like things have taken a turn for the worse and he has decided it just isn't worth the fight. And he had just started a new job on Monday. Things were actually looking like they might work out after all. He just couldn't deal, living with a belligerent alcoholic anymore. So, he called tonight from UHaul, where he was picking up the trailer. So, it looks like I'll have a roommate again in a few days.
Today turned out to be a beautiful day. An almost cloudless blue sky, a very light breeze and around 80°, almost perfect. It's supposed to be close to 90 again tomorrow, so much for the reprieve.
