Today: Breezy, rain. High in the low 70s.
    As I eat the rest of my Halloween candy, I wonder:

Tonight: Showers. Low in the mid 50s.
    Is it a coincidence that Halloween falls right as the weather starts
to get colder, so that you can stock up on body fat for the upcoming
frigid winter…

Tomorrow: Showers. High in the mid 50s.
    Or is it just the gods laughing at us?
