Yep, today is a holiday. I just verified it by making a call to the parts department of the local Jeep dealer and wondering why no one was answering. Duhhh! Bet later on I'll even try to go get the mail.

The way the weather is scheduled to come in tonight I'll bet there will be a lot of people who wished they had Tuesday off.

Extended weekends don't mean quite so much when you are unemployed, except you getta hang out with your working friends.

What about Wedenaday into Thurday storm? When I see white, I see GREEN. If you get my drift. I just hate getting up at 1:30 in the morning so I'll probably stay in Reno Wedenaday night.
