It's November! My favorite month of the year. This is my birthday month. I'm a Scorpio... can you tell? I do have a bit of a temper that every now and then rears up and bites off nearby heads. When that happens, my rule is to shrug and say "So what... this is me!"
Here in Central PA we had a steady rain most of yesterday afternoon and the temps climbed into the mid 70's (F). Then, last evening, around quarter to 7, the skies exploded with thunder and lightening. Wind screamed through the maple trees on my hill behind the house, rending leaves, and twigs, and sticks free to send them shrieking into the maelstrom. Rain crashed into my house like waves upon the shore, sounding like dying hands pounding on the windows. My freaking phone was crying out high wind warnings, and tornado warnings, and then flood warnings every few minutes. This went on for almost an hour.... and then silence. Hell, I have a half an inch of water in my basement. I would have to say that in all of my years, it was a Halloween night to remember.
In a bit of lighter news, the impeachment proceedings took a baby step towards public hearings. As might be expected, voting was partisan as hell. This is what we expect from Republicans. Their grubby, little mitts are clenched tightly to the Idiot Jerk's shroud. For them to let go, they need to admit he is a scourge from Hell and we know that will never happen. He will drag them into purgatory, where their souls will be lightly crisped before he snacks upon them. Yum yum. That moment can't happen soon enough.
Here's another bit of fluff. The Moral Degenerate is moving his legal residence to Florida. He loves him his winter golf. Personally, I think this transition is more political than anything else. He won Florida in 2016, however... Things are a bit different. His henchies have no doubt told him New York is going to go royally blue and Florida is edging in that direction. Florida has a lot of Electoral Votes. While not a sure shot, the best way to keep those votes from changing color is to move to his castle on the beach. He's going to give up his snowbird status. Of course, I might be wrong. The Idiot Jerk might just be planning on building the largest retirement community for old and dying Republicans the country has ever seen.
As for that little thing called the impeachment inquiry. The GOP is rapidly pulling their wagons into a circle in an attempt to hold out until the cavalry comes to save their sorry asses. Oops. I guess no one told them how much they've alienated the cavalry by calling their heroes cowards and traitors. Their mask is off and he is the face of Republican Party. They've given us their trick for long enough, soon... so very soon, they're going to be getting their long deserved Treat... and it ain't a Snickers bar.
