Blustery

Another Hard Wind A Blowin'

It's very windy out there tonight. Supposed to blow until 6pm or so. Guess the little kids will all be blown away tomorrow afternoon. May get more showers on them, too.

The heavy rains today flooded a lot of the low lying areas again, like last Friday, including that same low spot on Chicago Drive, and some parts of Zeeland, near Holland MI. But for the first time in over a week, it wasn't a cold rain.

Of course a cold front is coming through and the low tonight in Allendale is supposed to be 45°F. The high tomorrow is supposed to be... 45°F. I suppose one can't fault consistency.

If It Was Only "Just" Money

How often do you get to take 100 grand out of the bank? I did today. Made a deposit and then walked out with a 100 Grand -- the Fun Size of the Nestle bar. What? It's Halloween, even at the bank. What did you think I meant? (grin)

Of course I remember when they came out in '68 -- tickling my father's sweet tooth -- and for the first seventeen years they were called $100,000 Bars. Never thought that 100 Grand Bar sounded as good. Plus it lacks that mystical $-dollar sign.

Not Everything Is Halloween

Though there are a number of horror and monster movies on late on Friday night, I did notice that TNT was showing The Fugitive with Harrison Ford and Tommy Lee Jones, and Bravo was showing Sleepless In Seattle with Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan.

Me? I got grading to do tomorrow.
