No World Series tonight, I'm thinking

That's the view out my dining room window just now. Actually, in the five minutes since I took that, the deck is even whiter. It's coming down steadily and the temperature is dropping (it's currently 34F). Wherever you may be reading this, believe me: snow on October 28 is not normal around here.

Might be a good afternoon for whiskey in the coffee.

Sounds like a good time to start hitting up my stash of stone IRS - i like to wait until the first snowfall of the year :)

They shoulda called that game last night way before the 5th inning,it was deplorable conditions.

Yeah, I think watching the snow fall this morning halved the productivity in my office in Trenton.

I think it is going to be a good night for some Mad Elf.

What is this going to do for beer sales when play resumes I wonder?

I'd want hot Quelque Chose, baby.

Okay, no more "global warming" comments, please, serious or in fun, pro or con. It's just snow in my backyard.

We wound up getting a fat inch, lost some branches off the maple tree, and now it's melting. Nasty evening, and I'm really glad everyone's home.

Yep. Back in upper Michigan we always had to make sure the Halloween costume could fit over a snowmobile suit...just in case.

the first snow is always cause for a little impromptu drinking....even if it does occur in october.

Considering it's about time for bed, I'll skip the coffee. Hot chocolate and Buffalo Trace, perhaps?

With regards,
