Good morning, Everyone.  We had light rain over night but the temperature was 40F on our patio this morning.  Much above normal.  Most of the snow has melted.  The seven-day forecast showed more of the same--rain or rain mixed with light snow and higher than normal temps.

The morning news this morning said that the last 'FEMA trailer' is now or will shortly be empty.  The 80+ year old occupant refused to move unless she could move back into her original house.  Evidently her house and the neighborhood around it has been rebuilt and she can go back.  The news mentioned in passing the problem of formaldehyde and other chemical contamination in the trailers before saying that the thousands of trailers would now be sold.  Unless the buyer is a scrap dealer who will take them apart I have a major problem with that.  I resent the thought that some poor schmuck would buy a polluted trailer from the government to live in or resell for some other poor schmuck to live in.

Just what we need--another Repthuglican hypocrite.  Government loans to alternative energy start-ups is bad (unless of course it is an alternative energy start up in his state that he supports or unless Repthuglicans support the company.)

Weather up-date--we now have some nice sunshine.
