Now that summer is officially over, summer has returned to Central New York, and procrastinators such as myself have been rewarded with the opportunity to recoup a couple of pool days that we lost out on during the joke of a summer that’s just ended, with temperatures expected to get near 90 on Sunday. It’s not often I get to thumb my nose at you guys with your perfect manicured lawns who got your pools closed right after Labor Day (yeah, I’m talking to you, Gary), this could be the weekend, and I’ll try and enjoy it while I can.

My Friend Irma

If you live in Florida, you’re hopefully on the road to somewhere safe (or already there) and aren’t reading this right now. At the moment, Irma is whomping Cuba and getting ready to turn north to Florida. My brother and his life live down there (not in Miami, but in the West Palm Beach vicinity, I think), and his kids and grandkids are also in the area. It’s not the first hurricane they’ve gone through, but it looks like it’ll be the worst. They aren’t supposed to get the flooding that Texas got, and last I heard they weren’t evacuating. But I think they’re all pretty busy right now, and I expect once they lose power, it’ll be out for a while.

So, it’s September now with Labor Day weekend almost upon us (or already upon a lot of us, judging by the lack of people in the office today). It was a rather crisp 41 degrees here this morning. I don’t know if that’s the coldest it’s been since our alleged “summer” began, but it felt pretty goddamn cold to me. So cold that, though I hated to do it, I decided to wear my dungaree jacket this morning. I thought I’d regret it as the day warmed up (which isn’t going to be by much), but it’s f*cking freezing (or I, at least, and freezing) here in the office, so I’m actually wearing it now. I just wish I had some mittens with me.
