Lovely weather we're having....

Halloween weekend we had record highs. Simply beautiful weather. Twenty degrees above average for this time of year. Halloween night I built a fire in our fire pit out front, and sat near it in a lawn chair while serving the kids that came by. No jacket necessary, even after dark. One week later (last weekend) we were twenty degrees below average. This week we have had rain, sun, wind, cold, mild. Today we should be about average for temperature(mid-fifties). Tomorrow we lose ten degrees, and probably get wet flurries of snow....

This weekend the grandsons are having a Scout campout. I'm glad they have zero-degree sleeping bags. And new coats, hats, and gloves.

Obama Wins!

And it's a sad day for America.

Still, I am very cautiously optimistic. As MaAb said after he killed his rival to become leader of his tribe, "Perhaps, to be high Ti-Er is to see things differently." (ST-TOS, "Friday's Child")
