The temperatures have gone down dramatically but the weather system that
brought it had high winds, something we don't need right now.  The TV news
stressed that it would be dangerous to have barbeques this holiday weekend
and strongly suggested no one do it.  I don't know if it was official, but
my guess is all your neighbors would jump your butt for it.  Some idiots
have been spotted throwing cigarettes out of their car windows.  I'd like to
track them down like the dogs they are....

Thanks for the positive thoughts, we're getting through it so far.  Have any
rain you wanna sell?
