A Numbers Game

So Far This Week

Monday was the first full day of summer here in West Michigan and suddenly we had temps high in the 90s. Wow, heat. First real tests of our new central air conditioning -- Mrs. Dr. Phil is thrilled and wonders why it took seventeen years to get it. Well, we're cheap. What can I say? (grin)

Gas today was down to $2.60.9 to $2.65.9 per gallon for regular -- that's a drop of 30 to 35 cents over the last two weeks or so.

The big rains the other day is going to cost Ottawa County $4.3 million for fixing road damage -- some of the washed out sections will take six months to repair. Private damage in the county is $2.2 million and rising. No estimate on farm damage yet, though a lot of blueberries were knocked off by the storm.

Gave the Final Exam in PHYS-1070 today. It's all over except for the grading and the screaming. A game of numbers, indeed.

Never Enough

Fresh strawberry shortcake.
