Well it snowed here today... absolutely miserable! We got about 3" of thick, heavy, wet, snow on the ground. This is the earliest significant snowfall I have seen living here for the past 10 years.

Hopefully it will melt away tomorrow... I still have 2 large systems to install!

Arrrrgh.

Still making iced tea and still putting down pine straw in t-shirts. Have three lawns to cut today. Slept with bedroom window open last night--nice and cool in the evenings. At least when I go homeless, cardboard walls should be suffice.

Mike, who needs walls? Check out a novel called the Box Man by Kobo Abe...

Amazon.com Review
The nature of identity itself is the ostensible subject of this bizarrely fascinating existential novel from the great Japanese fiction writer and dramatist Kobo Abe. In the story, a man decides to give up the self that he has been all his life to attain a state of blissful anonymity. He leaves his world behind and moves onto the streets of Tokyo. He puts a large box over his head, cuts a hole for his eyes. It is as strange as it sounds, but Abe's light touch and narrative innovation makes it compelling.

I don't mind the snow itself... for a few hours... on a sunny day...

It's the friggin' cold temperatures that accompany it that don't feel good to my Mediterranean blood.

Today I was a little chilly in the early morning. Had to put on a long sleeve shirt until about 8:00 AM.
