Sadly, we have reached the time of year where the time during the day gets leeched away by the night. I am fairly OK when it happens slowly, but in about 3 weeks, October 21st I think, DST kicks out and winter really has it's foot in the door. Last night was the first time that I shut the door before dark, and soon after, I turned on the furnace for the first time in the evening. I don't think that it would bother me so much if the politics weren't heating up. It is a real drag to stop and think that we still have another summer to go thru till the election is finally done with. I have a feeling that very soon, we will be in constant campain mode. Kill me now.
