Not a fan of having a tornado warning tonight. Just a massive thunderstorm system from Hartford, CT to Gettsyburg, PA. Makes me think of when we had a tornado touch down in Skillman, NJ when I was in high school.

Hopefully my wife can make it back from New York tonight too. Metro North trains and Grand Central is shut down right now.

Still looking forward to summer in Maine.

Had one hot sweaty afternoon on Thursday.

But last 2 days been tempted to put the heat on.

Summertime and it's wicked chilly.

My wife is graduating from the University of Southern Maine tomorrow Sunna Cum Laude.

She is taking one more math class in the fall to complete her minor but will then be done.

Getting a BA takes forever part time.

Really enjoying creating poetry -- was very gratified by the response of my poem this night.

Here is one from the fall --

Clockwatching

Day slow
day not moving

Getting paid
A little

Day slow
very slow

Time moving
very, very, so slow

Will not move

Energy not here

Anywhere else

Somewhere else
Getting paid --- a little

Getting by
Making do

It's midwinter.

That means around 7 weeks to spring -- believe it or not.

Nothing lasts forever, even feet and feet of snow --

Kitties take over your life and control you with cuteness.

Fear the cute!

If you could be any rich, well known star type person who would you want to be?

Warren Buffett -- tons of money -- well respected -- great humanitarian -- spending my life giving to charity sounds like a great life.

that works for me as well
hellomrworld:
George Clooney -- yep -- just have to watch out for the smug -- would rather have a low profile honestly -- not that Buffett does -- but Access Hollywood, Us, etc. don't care

So it turns out keeping canned air near the heater is not so good -- it can explode and make a loud noise -- everything seems ok though.

Did call poison control who was wicked nice -- seemed to knock down one painting -- hooks are missing -- made a dent in the heater.

Actually thought heater blew up at first -- so thankful everyone is ok.
