It seems as though Ophelia is going to be hanging around until tomorrow sometime. We're in a band of steady rain, with occasional strong gusts of wind. According to Accuweather we're in the 2 - 4 inch zone. As long as my basement doesn't flood, that's fine with me. The thermostat indicates that the temp on the first floor is 68 (F) so I am tempted to turn on the heat a bit and the forecasters are saying it's not going to get much warmer until Wednesday, when it's supposed to climb up to 69 (F). If I do, I'll have to change the filter in my furnace.
As expected, retail was slow yesterday. It will probably be slow again today... and tomorrow. There will be some customers, but not the sort of big spenders corporate wants to walk through our front doors.
We're celebrating our "Success Sharing," this weekend, that small bonus corporate pays us. It's a little big of extra money that I can always spend. There's also food! Yesterday we were supposed to be making S'mores on a grill out back but... well, Ophelia put a damper on that, so they order pizza in for everyone. I'm find with that. I'd taken lunch, but ate pizza instead. Today is supposed to be Trail Mix day. Yep, we're going to be able to mix our own trail mix. Can you read the excitement in my words.
The house next door has been Sold. I was talking to the real estate agent, she told me a young couple just starting out bought it. I've decided that I'm not going to mention any of the problems to them, unless they ask. This could be a bit of an adventure.
The release of Dune has been delayed until March to the disappointment of many, so, as a sort of balm, I thought I'd post a pic of Lego Dune to help with those sad feelings.
