95 in Richmond

High of 95 today in Richmond? It's freakin mid-October!

On another note, I was reminded yesterday just how arbitrary the rules of operation are in this country. Yesterday was Columbus day. If you live in a city with Italian heritage, you might have known that; otherwise, your best clue was when everything kept operating except government. I work for a financial firm, and I wouldn't have had off if I hadn't been on a pre-scheduled vacation. The grocery stores didn't have off. Private schools didn't have off. But the post-office and the public schools have off. So do the banks, as evidenced by the fact that none of the ATMs had any deposit envelopes.
