Yesterday saw temperatures almost reach eighty. And in typical spring weather, today’s highs will be in the forties. There is even a slight chance of snow. Sigh.
It was great wearing shorts and a T-shirt for a couple of days. Now we are looking at cool weather for the next week.
I’m bracing myself with another bout on hold with the unemployment folks. I spent more than 8 hours on hold Tuesday, getting disconnected three times while being transferred from the call center to someone who can actually help me understand why I cannot file for the extended benefits. I was on hold for nearly two hours yesterday without ever connecting to anyone prior to traveling to the northern part of the state for a funeral.
It was strange standing in separation at the cemetery while the minister spoke over a loud speaker. We were in immediate-family groups, spread out in an area roughly half a football field. For the most part everyone did a good job of social distancing. My Brother-in-law, who we haven’t seen since Christmas, could not resist hugging my wife. She tried backing away to no avail. So it goes.
Here is a bad cell phone video of the storm rolling into the neighborhood last evening. Check out the weird streaming clouds. The winds must have been hundreds of miles an hour aloft.
