I just packed away all the scarves, gloves, mittens, warm jackets, hats, etc--and what's the weather report? "Cold temperatures will lead to widespread frost tonight over most of southeast Michigan as temperatures fall into the 30s." Well, that's dandy. Just when you thought there was light at the end of the tunnel--hey! It's a train coming to mow you down.
And gas finally hit $4.19/gallon here in town. I'm sure all you Europeans are laughing at us a bit, since I seem to remember gas being about $1/liter when I was in Italy back in 1989 (which would be about $4/gal)--but then again, you guys have fantastic public transportation, which, as I remember, goes virtually everywhere one might wish to go. As opposed to us here in America, where, in most places, public transportation goes--wait -- What public transportation here in America?
I didn't have a car at all for ten years when I lived in New York. I got everywhere I needed to go--and beyond. Boy, those were the days...how I miss the NYC subway. Here's to the MTA.
Wake me when it's over, will ya?
