It's a blustery day here in Temecula. Cloudy skies, cold air and rain. Lots of it. I'd sort of gotten used to shorts weather. But today, I had to put on two sweaters and crank up the heat, which the thermostat monitor did not appreciate. I won't name names, because I'm guessing you have someone at your house that freaks out too - if you turn the dial past 67. We call our thermostat monitor Mr. Krabs -- as in Sponge Bob. (In fact, I think there is even a Sponge Bob episode where Mr. Krabs tries to control the thermostat at the Krusty Crab. Everyone is covered in a layer of ice before he relents and turns up the heat. Three out of four Beutlers found it quite amusing.)
I'm having a blustery day too -- which makes it hard to write. Sometimes you get news that sits a little hard, and it takes a while to digest. That's me today. I'm digesting hard news.
I need a few days off to mull things over. I will be back as soon as the skies clear and I can think straight.
This storm will pass. They always do. That's the good thing about blustery days -- they don't last forever. And, they make us appreciate the sunlight.
