Ok, so here we are, it's Saturday morning, the day of the big snowstorm that was supposed to begin around 0700 and we have... nothing. Early forecasts had this big storm starting this morning and stretching into tomorrow morning... well, that ain't gonna happen. For those desperately wanting snow, the constant downgrades must really be putting a damper on their lives. Currently, they're only calling for 3 - 6 inches, and the worst of it should be over by 7 this evening. Most of the snowy weather is going to be staying to our west, so we're being hit with a non-event... again.
About 1/3 of the kitchen has been painted. Today, before I go to work, I'm going to secure a shelf and set up the lighting. I might even put a section of the backsplash in. Starting Monday, I'll be back on my regular schedule. I'm thinking that by next Friday, I should be ready to begin putting in the floor. Oh, what a joy that is going to be: me, down on my hands and knees, tapping vinyl planks into place.
I am scheduled to work today. Will it be busy? Probably not. Even in good times, from mid-January to mid-March are slow. Nobody wants to do home improvements during the winter. They might paint a room or two, but that's about it.
Speaking of winter, my upstairs seems warmer this year, possibly because my new neighbor's son has chosen to make their attic his bedroom and there's no heat up there. She told me she'd bought him a heater, which, I suspect is fairly useless. The roof has a high pitch, so all of that heat is going to rise. In a way I feel bad for them, spending all of that money on a house simply because it was staged well, but then again, I don't really feel sorry because of that very same reason. They bought the staging, not the house.

And I don't know if any of you have seen it, but the Orange Anus uploaded an election ad yesterday that is oh... so very sacrilegious. I haven't watched it. And I'm not posting it. But it begins with a look at Earth from space as a divinely inspired voiceover states that in God chose to have Trump born in 1946 in order to unify the country, and that he is supposed to be our Shepherd. There is a group of Christians who are so desperate they will believe his horseshit. Trump will destroy them the same way he's destroying the Republican party. As I've told my brother, and several other people, Trump is the Great Destroyer and nothing else.
