the nor'easter of 2007

after a week that saw the deaths of Kurt Vonnegut and Don Ho, three consecutive occasions of leave-straight-from-the-day-job-to-go-to-an-event, and at least one extremely late night following (which caused a unlikely rush to the AIPAD show at the 67th Street Armory because it closed at 8 p.m. (we considered a couple of photos, but ultimately parted with no cash, unless you count the grocery store stop on the return trip), we're now met with the nor'easter of 2007, a weather system the likes of which we haven't seen in these parts in 14 or 25 years (depending upon what news report you read/believe).

which makes it a perfect day to stay indoors (though we didn't), do laundry (we did), and wrestle with Delta Airlines customer service (they at least refunded my $20 telephone assistance charge since their web page insisted that I call in (American Airlines, under nearly identical circumstances a couple weeks back, refused (guess who won't be flying American for a long, long time))), but that's still 45 minutes of my life that I'll never get back.

dire predictions have been issued for an overabundance of water in Manhattan and the Boston Marathon looks to be no fun at all, but that's tomorrow so we'll worry about it then.

appropriate song of the day: Richard Buckner's "Rainsquall" (available on eMusic)
