The LilyMonster seems to definitely like being able to hang out with us on the porch.
Of course, no sooner did I finish this than we’re not going to have a day above 80 degrees for the next 10 days and the evenings are already starting to be downright chilly. Lunches on the porch this week?
Sure, it is September, but I can’t help but think the smoke from the fires is also impacting the temps to boot. It’s arrived here and it’s downright creepy outside – I know it’s nothing compared to what folks are going through on the west coast, but everything is just weird and muted outside. This was yesterday morning:
Virginia’s early voting starts at the end of this week and FML, they’re only doing it at the main government center for the first month, and not on Saturdays, and the hours are 8AM – 4:30PM. Fucking hell, Fairfax, that is NOT FUCKING ACCESSIBLE FOR SO MANY PEOPLE. Also, so much for voting this Saturday.
The satellite location – the local government center just down the road – that doesn’t open until October 14 – their hours will be 1-7PM M-F and 9-5 on Saturdays. Better, but not by a ton, and I don’t think I want to wait that long this election, because I can’t be the only one who was planning on Saturday voting.
Guess I’ll take a look at my work calendar and see what day I can go in late next week. I know my boss won’t mind, but it’s going to be harder for a lot of folks who don’t want to wait another month for extended hours and Saturday voting.
WAIT – we have early out Fridays next week – I will do it then.
Plan. Your. Vote.
