After the weekend's fun, what with buying a new car and all, coming back to work is less than exciting. But still necessary, to replenish what we took out of the bank.
It's still raining, and AccuHunch Weatherguess says we'll have falling temps tomorrow, with rain changing to snow at some point. They're only calling for 1 to 3 inches, which is about normal for the first snowfall of the season. It's just that the "first snowfall" doesn't usually happen until the end of October.
It's a good thing that the prediction is for such a small amount of the white stuff: no one has their snow tires on, yet.
Looks like we got that new little 4x4 for my wife just in time. She's a happy camper. :)

Shell Oil announced that it's pulling out of arctic exploration in Alaska, which has the environmentalists jumping for joy. I recognize that they're sincere in their beliefs.
But this isn't going to be a forum on why we need the oil and gas. I'd be preaching to the choir, anyway. I doubt anyone from Friends of Alaska, The Wilderness Society, or Greenpeace bothers to read this little blog.
They're all based in Washington, DC, by the way. That tells you everything you need to know about where their motivations lie: it's all about the money. You take away the donations and political influence, and 99% of their members would wander away in search of a different source of latte'.

That's about all I've got this morning. But who knows? The day is young.
Thanks for stopping by, friends.
