After 10 straight days of dark, wet, ominously and obviously GRIM weather, today dawns bright and blue.
And COLD. Only 25F this morning. Birdbath is frozen and everything is covered in a hard frost.
But I'll take the cold in exchange for the dazzling sunshine because it's damn hard to keep oneself upbeat when living under a persistent shroud of gloom. I'm totally Totally TOTALLY done with all that (not only the weather, but with certain family issues)! At long last, I'm moving on and letting in the light, thanks to the sun and, more importantly, dear friends!
Today is election day. Even though Ohio has allowed early voting (does that work?), I've reserved my vote for the official day - first Tuesday (after the first Monday) of November. After a MONTHs of non stop phone spam, after the messiest, dirtiest, UNEVEN (and insanely expensive) political campaigns I've ever witnessed in my lifetime, I'm heading to the polls.
I'd like to say I'm going to vote FOR something/someone. But supporting something seems to have faded quite a while ago. Now it seems there is only a chance to vote AGAINST something or DEPOSE someone. At least we still have that right. And I'm not going to ignore the opportunity to use it before certain factions make it difficult for certain Americans TO vote . So I'm voting -- because EVERY SINGLE VOTE counts!
Please, if you haven't already, VOTE TODAY.
Back from the polls. There was a line. It's heartening to see the turnout!
12:55 a.m. Wednesday
Yes, early voting DOES make a difference!!!! :-D
