This has been a week for the record books, and it isn’t even
over yet. I’m beginning to lose faith in my fellow humans who

today and since I set outside with my camera to get some
pictures of the storm that didn’t come, I’ll wait until I hear
it to go out.
So enjoy our Wednesday wherever you are. Tomorrow it will just
be a memory.
