Two Bucks

Gas keeps on dropping, then spiking, then resuming its freefall. Gas was down to $3.01.9/gallon, then $2.96.9/gal, I think. Why did I not know? Because Saturday we ended up not with the usual 5-10¢/gal discount coupon from groceries at Family Failure, or the special 50¢/gal coupons, but an ultra-special regular for $1.99.9/gal -- or midgrade for $2.14.9/gal. Huh.

Funny how we hope that gas drops for the regular coupons to maximize the discount, but wish it were high for this ultra-special deal so we can feel better about it. Instead of just shouting I GOT TWO BUCK GAS IN A THREE BUCK GAS WORLD.

Heavy rain on the drive in today. Gusty crosswinds. Went into 4WD twice to keep the tracking straight. One gust pushed me past the yellow line on the hill up towards Kalamazoo, where an orange barrel was sitting over the line -- I clipped it at speed, but couldn't see a mark on the front bumper and left front headlight and turn signal seem to work fine.

My father always said during construction season that he wished he had the concession for those plastic orange barrels. Better than the metal drums or the crosshorses.
