odds and ends about today

the temperature, as i write this, is in the middle 60s. that's way above the average high for this time of year. temperatures are forecast to be in the middle 40s to the high teens for the next few days.

but the winds are heavy. i was out doing some errands this morning and it took some effort to keep my car from drifting, ever so slightly, when i was driving in the country.

however, it's overcast, as it has been for at least the last two weeks. the sun came out a few times this morning, but they were short.

on christmas day, however, the sunlight shone bright and pure. only a few clouds were in the sky.

we had no snow on the ground in central indiana, so even if we didn't have a white christmas, at least it wasn't a gray one. and no snow is forecast to fall until the new year.

early in november, i had posted about gasoline prices. if you want to read what i wrote, click here.

while i was out this morning, i saw that gas was $1.539 per gallon at a station about five miles from where i live.
