The other fall event, Election Day, is intimately connected with the weather too. It can be nice. It can be snowy. It can be brutally cold. The in-between days seem to be very few.
This Election Day, the weather has been a most splendid. Mostly sunny skies. Temps in the upper 70s. The clouds, the fair weather kind. A beautiful sunset.
The politics of the past four years has been most corrosive, chaotic and without purpose. Dad and I laughed quite a bit about the elected leaders, from the locals to the very top. Stupidity and idiocy does not discriminate among those in politics. Dad stopped voting, primarily for having to decide who is less stupid, who is less of an idiot. And, those tax amendments that keep appearing on the ballot, there was a reason why they failed the last time.
After all the counting is done, what matters is what has always mattered.
