This house is basically around the corner, but after the first few times I passed it, I only saw the electric green trim. Somehow, last week I looked beyond that and saw that the shingles are probably around five decades old. Retro paint, retro shingles?
A fierce front came through in the wee hours, bringing enough rain to drop the pollen count to a figure in the mid-500s—still considered extremely high (but nothing like the 5500+ it was). The meteorologists say the temps will stay low (highs in the 50s) through the weekend—that’s a change!—and maybe below freezing in the ’burbs and mountains. This afternoon was breezy and sunny.
