Saturday Evening Post for October 22nd, 2016: Blustery Night Outside, Fatigued Inside Edition

**This entry was posted October 22, 2016.**

I'm having difficulty tonight putting together a jukebox Saturday edition simply because I can't think of any songs I would like to post. In addition, I'm very tired -- fatigued even, at least in part because I had a full, multi-part gym workout earlier today.

True, I went out last night after staying late at work, but that wasn't anything unusual, and I slept for a good 10 to 11 hours -- although not continuously and it was agitated dream-roiled toward the end.

A stratocumulus cloud briefly blocks out the Sun as seen from the 2000 block of New Hampshire Ave (outside my apartment building), 3:19PM October 22, 2016.


The weather was MUCH cooler, windy, and partly cloudy today with highs of 61F at KDCA, 59F at KBWI, and 58F at KIAD. Yes, that 84F / 68F dew point shit finally ended. Wind were from the west and occasionally northwest 25 to 30MPH with gusts to near 40MPH.

There was some -- very needed -- rainfall yesterday with the cold frontal passage but it was meager: 0.26" at KDCA, 0.11" at KBWI, and 0.14" at KIAD, so we're still trending into a region-wide drought with monthly and seasonal totals well below normal.

It doesn't appear as though there will be any rainfall until at least next Thursday / Friday.

Tonight is a breezy, blustery night with temperatures dropping toward 45F here in the District, upper 30s F in the suburbs.

It has been too dry and the fall leaves are not very colorful this year -- at least so far.


I had intended to post a longer entry tonight, but that's not going to happen.

Looking ahead, I haven't finished a particularly vexing work assignment that I need to have done Monday morning -- although the details surrounding it are such that even if I don't finish it, odds are no one will notice since the product (summary of the oral presentations made at a seminar five months ago) is likely never going to be used.

Regardless, I need to spend a few hours on it tomorrow (likely, tomorrow evening) and so I can't post an entry. As a result, my next planned posting will be late Monday or just after midnight Tuesday.

Row houses in the 1400 block of W Street NW, Washington, D.C., 3:23PM October 22, 2016.

I was walking to the gym.


For tonight, I'm meeting Kevin at Old Ebbitt Grill although I plan to stop at Dito's Bar first -- if only to watch the opening of Saturday Night Live and what is sure to be another Kate McKinnon / Alec Baldwin parody of Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump -- this time satirizing the 3rd presidential debate, which for its part hardly needing satirizing in terms of Trump's outbursts and frequent incoherencies.

Row houses in the 1300 block of W Street NW -- across the street from the YMCA Anthony Bowen -- Washington, D.C., 3:25PM October 22, 2016.

My former coworker and acquaintance, Natan, once lived in that corner row house (basement apartment) but he and his fiancé now live in Denver.


For tomorrow during the day, I'll just take a walk -- maybe taking the Metro to Bethesda or Old Town -- and get lunch somewhere. Again, assuming I get up and out of the apartment before, like, 3PM.

Alright, that is all for now. A mediocre Jukebox Saturday Night Entry to follow shortly.
