    On update the temp has dropped to 48 F.
    Our high is 56 today and we have a frost warning tonight. Yes it may be May but I think Mother Nature thinks its March. Oh and for the month of April, Ohio has had 3 more inches of rain than Seattle, WA. Think I need to move.

    I really hate those big-ass vehicles. I drive a Toyota ECHO and as much as I try to park away from the big ones, they are all around me when it's time to drive away. Now, I always back into parking spaces so I can pull away more safely.

    I can't even back in because they are EVERYWHERE and I hafta be able to really see the truck sides and stripes to have a prayer of not hitting them. I've given up and started parking out in BFE where I can pull through, because the owners of oilfield are also almost always the lazy f*ckers parking as close as they can to the entrance, even if it's not a spot, legal spot, or they have all of 6" clearance to open the truck door.

    I have one of the convex mirrors on my driver's side mirror and it helps a lot when backing up, letting me see the parking lines.

    GotD - dinky little trailer, long wheelbase pick-up truck, reversing a narrow S shape...... I didn't hit anything solid, but a small shrub suffered slightly!

    GotD: The lunch specials at the cafeteria at work. Every now and then they have something really good - but when you leave out the giant lump of starch, it is nowhere NEAR enough food. I just paid an extra 2 bucks to be hungry again by 2 PM.

    Fer fuck's sake. It's hard enough finding lace up steel toes in my size. Now I'm supposed to secure NFPArated flame retardent clothing by Friday. No pressure...

    Fucking mosquitoes....with all the rain we've had they are biting already. I went for a walk in the woods when it was in the 80s on Tuesday and now I've got itchy bites. Gonna have to remember the bug repellant next time - I like All Terrain Herbal Armor.
