Looks like it'll get here just in time to ruin yet another weekend. I swear, we've had 2, maybe 3 sunny weekends all summer.

And on the only sunny days for the next week (Tues and Weds), I get to take a work trip to Ann Arbor, MI. Get back late Weds night in time for the next round of rain starting Thurs and running, no doubt, all the way into the weekend. I keep hoping to take a few days off when the weather improves, but it never does. Or I can't because of some work related reason.

The forecast for this winter is cold and lots of snow. Joy.
