School's out, so the Curmudgeon is taking a few days off. We'll be back early next week.
A few brief observations:
Today's Washington Post has an excellent analysis of the problems facing Northern Virginia's Republican office holders. If the GOP leadership in Richmond doesn't seriously address the transportation issues up here, and soon, expect a wave of blue in NoVa.
Our graduation was great. One of the highlights was the class speech given by a boy who came to our Spanish immersion school from Bolivia in the first grade, not knowing a stitch of English. He gave a fine speech, in English, to complement the fine speech given in Spanish by his classmate who knew not a stitch of Spanish before she started kindergarten.
When we return, we'll summarize the data on our test of long-range weather forecasts and see if we can draw any conclusions.
Speaking of which . . .
Today's 10 day forecast: Hi 85, scattered T-storms, 60% rain. Rating: N
Today's 5 day forecast: Hi 93, sunny, 20% rain. Rating: Y
Today's actual weather: Hi 91, sunny, no rain.
Comment: As of last night, the forecasts for today were for a high probability of thunderstorms, but nothing really developed anywhere east of the Shenandoah Valley. Good pool day!
