I understand the logic behind having a maintenance man turn off the the library's AC compressor in mid-October. You're unlikely to use it after that point.

That being said, it is freaking 84 degrees in here, and I'm going to die of heat exhaustion. Save me!

I need my friends to periodically remind me: no matter how cute the new shoes, and how much you want to wear them, if they are open-toe, you cannot wear them when the forecast is rain.

That was not comfy.

I love that even at the height of summer, I'm dressed in three layers - and yet, I think I still look relatively summery. I have to do the tank-shirt-jacket thing in case the branch I'm sent to has gone overboard on the AC. But white pants and khaki jacket make anything look summery.

wtf?

You know, I could see the torrential rain (and the backup on the Cross-County Expressway) this morning, so I very carefully listened to the traffic report. There appeared to be problems on Long Island, and in Manhattan, and with the trains, but no problems were mentioned for Westchester.

So imagine my surprise to find that the Hutchinson Parkway was closed for flooding! Why was this not part of the 1010 WINS traffic report?! Is Westchester not part of the metro area?

If I had known that, I would have taken a different route from the beginning. But by the time I saw the traffic cones, it would have taken too much time to go back to that other route, and I just had to follow other cars and trust that they were headed where I wanted to go (since of course there were no detour signs).

Sorry, had to get that off my chest.

It snowed last night, although not enough to paralyze the area.

And I woke up to discover that my car had already been mostly brushed off. My first thought was "awww, how sweet, Rich did my car for me!"

Second thought was, "I wonder if he did that so I'd have less excuse to stay home." There wasn't enough snow to really get away with that anyway, but I had made a joke about it last night when it started snowing. Which got me a dirty look and "don't rub it in."

Rich gives me this look every time I say it (since he works outdoors now), but the weather needs to cool off already! I just can't get in the mood to do holiday shopping if it's not cold. It seems like it's not time yet or something.

So, sorry honey, but I'm happy there's a cold front coming through today. And I want to wear my sweaters, dammit!

It's snowing. I want spring, dammit!

Snow day!

W00t! Just learned that the library will be closing at 2:00 pm today, due to snow. Considering I get to go home early and STILL GET PAID, this is awesome news. Since I was planning to go home early, loss of pay or not.

And there must be a new person making this decision, because last year the earliest they ever sent us home was 4:00 pm, after much staff bitching. Someone has learned the value of keeping up staff morale vs. saving money on paid leave.

I'm reading the local news from my hometown paper and dying:

"Traffic came to a standstill and many businesses sent workers home early Wednesday because of a fast-moving low-pressure system that left icy conditions and as much as an inch of snow across Hampton Roads."

Rich's reaction: "Holy shit! A whole inch! Wow!" (with, of course, heavy sarcasm)

I can't stop giggling. They make it sound apocalyptic.

Everyone was complaining about the weather today (heavy fog), but I thought it was great. I came out of work in the twilight, with the fog and the streetlamps burning, and felt like I was in a Sherlock Holmes story complete with London fog, or maybe a noir mystery. I was definitely more dressed for the noir, in black and white with red lipstick. I was just getting a kick out of it. So atmospheric.
