Shooting film here, so nothing to post yet. But they're harvesting the dried field corn, so I got some nice views of partiality cleared fields. Also a pale afternoon moon rising over a barn and fields. And the horses about a mile from here were out.
I did get snowed on in Kalamazoo yesterday, just enough to put some white on the grass in a few minutes, but it had only started just as I got in the Blazer. Driving the first fifteen miles included a few stretches in Drive, not Overdrive, or even 4WD at one point. I am not going to voluntarily add myself to the carnage of those who have forgotten how to drive in winter.
Took me fifteen minutes just to get to US-131 from campus. Some of the lights have countdowns on the crosswalk signals. The big intersection at Drake and Main cheats, and goes yellow at 5 seconds, not zero or after zero. Surely you can get more that 3-5 cars through on a cycle. Then it struck me. All these cars were going to Target or maybe Meijer to buy candy. Maybe at 4pm the Big stores start putting it on sale.
Forgot once again to pick up the negatives and PhotoCD in town -- Mrs. Dr. Phil got them on her grocery run.
The saga of the gas prices continued. On my way through Allendale, I noted everybody was $2.90.9/gallon. Everyone except Family Failure, which was still 5¢ a gallon higher. When I can be through Allendale less than a hour later, Mobil had dropped to $2.87.9/gal, which put Family Fare up by 8¢/gal. Mrs. Dr. Phil brought home a 10¢/gal coupon -- will be annoyed if all or most is eaten up by a differential... Thanks, guys.
