After receiving over a half inch of rain yesterday, 6 tenths of an inch to be exact, today should be a dry day. It will be warmer too. Later this afternoon the temperature should reach into the upper 50s, and the sun will pop out occasionally to help it get there. Tomorrow will be a little warmer still, and still dry. We should make the low 60s on Friday with the sun peeking through from time to time. The rain will come back for the weekend and the temperatures will be backing down again, so enjoy the dry weather while you can.
There's a big Halloween candy sale today at Rosauers (that's a grocery store chain for those who are not experienced in the culture of the Inland Northwest). I am going to take my life in my hands and join the fray to stock up for the trick or treaters in a couple of weeks. We still have to go out and get pumpkins. It just isn't the same, doesn't have the same appeal, as when you have a kid or two in the house, even if they are of high school age! I imagine that the feeling will be the same when it is time for the annual Christmas tree hunt. I don't think that Beth will come home soon enough to be part of that expedition. Oh the trials and tribulations of getting old and useless!
