Sunday's weather is a repeat of yesterday's weather, and it will carry on for the rest of the week and maybe into the following week. I'm reading that the current weather patterns are the result of El Nino, that could be. With climate change, El Nino may become more of a presence, rather than showing up every few years to bring warm weather to the east coast.
Retail was slow yesterday. When sales are down on a weekend management wants to blame sports. Yesterday Penn State played, so everybody stayed home, however the pattern of lower sales doesn't only happen during football season. During the summer they blamed it on Phillies baseball. The truth is that they're trying to look for a rational explanation. The fact that some retailers might have priced themselves out of competition in their desperate search for that 5% growth is never going to occur to them, mostly because upper management is conservative... and, how could conservatives ever be wrong?
I do get to work today. I will let you know if it's slow or not.
This morning, I went out and took a pic looking up through my gingko. The leaves are turning yellow fast. Soon they'll fall, all at once. Seriously. It takes an hour or so, but they all fall at one time. It's as though it's shrugging off a summer coat that's no longer stylish. Oh, and actually, this gingko is a female. How do I know? Male gingkoes have balls.
