This morning was weird, because it was 63º at 5:30 a.m. Our normal high for November 18 is only 48º, so you’ll forgive my disbelief. It can’t possibly be that warm, I thought, so I bundled myself up in a thick hoodie and stepped onto the porch. Immediately came back inside and swapped that hoodie for a much lighter-weight one, because yes, it was that warm.
What a strange weather year 2020 has been, which I suppose is par for the course anyway. Below zero one week, 80º the next. Back down to the teens, back up to the 70s. There has been no consistency, rhyme, or reason.
I wasn’t too upset today, though. The warm weather meant I could walk outside instead of on the treadmill. And over the next hour, I was treated to the most stunning sunrise in recent memory as the sky gradually evolved from jet black to vibrant orange, red, and purple.
But my favorite color of all? Blue. I came across this map showing the shift in voter margins across the country from 2016 to 2020, and was very happy (and admittedly surprised) to see Pennington County, which I have circled for the geographically averse, enjoy a fairly significant increase in the number of Democratic votes this election cycle. Hell, even the middle of the state is trending in that direction. There’s hope for us yet!
It’s a fascinating article from NPR (aka “the liberal media”…ROFLMAO) by the way, and helps explain exactly how Biden won. If you doubt in any way that he did, you’ve been drinking far too much Kool-Aid. Like these people. I hope you get your head out of the sand before January 20, 2021, because my livelihood (and YOURS) depends on it.
Still not sure if I’m writing every day this month…
