Tomorrow, high of 68° 40% chance of rain.
Tuesday, high of 41° 40% chance of snow.

I could write a few paragraphs about getting some quality time off work and away from the Wife, the family coming to visit, New Year's weekend kicking ass, being swamped at work, resolutions, chili, buying a fake Rolex, almost getting fired, seeing the hottest new emo band before they become the hottest new emo band (starts with a 'P' and ends with a 'ablo.' You heard it here first) and watching the Wife d-d-d-dancing with herself playing Rayman, but I'll leave it to your imagination.

Sigh o nara, suckers.
