Today is most likely the last day we will be having warm temps; 64 (F) outside as I type. That's almost balmy. Predictions are for us to hit a high of 75 (F) today. Then the mercury is supposed to drop, cratering to a low of 33 (F) overnight. It will be much cooler tomorrow, so if you're one of those standing in line to cast your vote, make sure you bundle up.
Yesterday was terribly slow at work. On a Sunday afternoon and early evening, you know televised football is cutting down the shoppers. The weather was warm, mid 70s (F) when I left work, so rather than shop, people did things outside. Black Friday is coming up, and even though we have a lot of pre-Black Friday deals, people will wait for what they think is going to be a better sale, (remember when I said that great sale will end?). And then there are the price increases. Not so noticeable on the big ticket items, it's the smaller priced items where the higher prices are more apparent. Corporate wants to hit it's fiscal goal and to do that they will raise the cost of a drill, or screws, or paint brush. While during the pandemic we were considered an 'essential' business, in truth, for most people, the products we sell are not essential. No one's life is going to depend upon whether they paint their living room sage green, or lollipop lavender.
I do have leaves. They're sill falling like rain.
