First Snow

We had a little snow today. Freeze warning tonight.

We had to go purchase a new TV today too. About a week ago, suddenly the TV (a 7-year-old, 42 inch Sony rear projection set) went very red. The reset button and adjusting the set worked only so far. Then today, it went really red and there was no adjusting it at all. Here’s a picture of Megyn Kelly all pinkerized… Poor Megyn. I mean, I know it’s Breast Cancer Awareness month, but this just goes too far…

Please contribute to the Susan G. Komen Foundation. My sister’s mother-in-law died as a result of her breast cancer last October.

So we went to Circuit City and purchased a 47 inch LG HD LCD to replace it. It’s very nice.

Monday Morning Musings

Trick-or-treating started off very slow yesterday. The hours for trick-or-treating were 1 – 5 pm. We didn’t see our first trick-or-treater until 1:52 pm. And it wasn’t one trick-or-treater, it was a crowd of about 15.

Lots of princesses and Batmen. Several werewolves with good masks. A very large gorilla showed up with two tiny princesses.

It was pretty steady until about 3:30 and it dropped off drastically with a slight flurry of trick-or-treaters around 4:40.

It was sunny, only about 50°F and quite windy bringing that temperature lower with wind chill. That may explain the lower turnout for trick-or-treating this year. For the past few years it’s been warmer – sixties – and sunny and we had steady trick-or-treaters during the full four hours.
