Don't get me wrong. I'm no big fan of slippery roads and shoveling snow but now that the leaves are just starting to bud on the trees, I'm beginning to confront the downside aspects of summer. The days of just dropping the blinds at 4:30 pm and printing away are gone. Even now it doesn't get dark enough until almost eight o'clock and it's only going to get worse. Starting a printing session at 10 just ain't my style since Alison Steele (The Nightbird) left WNEW FM. Last year, I cut black foamcore to block the windows but took them down for the winter. Time to put them back up. Before long I am going to have to start bringing my solutions _down_ to 20C instead of up and my tap water is going to running at 22C +. If anyone has a cheap and convenient solution to that problem, I'm all ears. I'd rather save my ice for Bloody Marys.
