Today promises to be the warmest day of the year—not, certainly, the warmest day of the entire year, but the warmest day to date this year. It was 68 degrees in my office when I arrived here at 7:30 AM. The temperature probe in Mr. Nitro indicated the outside temperature at that time was 57 degrees. This is the first day this year that I eschewed the heating system here at the office. It is entirely possible that later today I shall engage the air conditioning! If the weatherpeople are correct, tomorrow and days following will be warmer yet.

Corning's annual May Madness Car Show is quickly approaching. It will take place on Mothers Day weekend, Friday, May 11th, and Saturday, May 12th.
