I suppose we all have something to say about the weather. The temperature will be in the low nineties for the show Saturday, according to my version of weather.com. My daughter, who lives a mile from the cooling shore of Lake Erie, tells me it will be in the eighties. Either way, it will be hot.
It was hot for the last show, a month ago, for exhibitors set up out in the sun. We are in the barn, at the back of the barn. The sun cleared the roof and sent the sunshine creeping toward us about 3:30. The show ended at 4:00.
There is an upside to extreme heat at a show. There will be customers, and they will fill the barn, looking for shade.
I read a NYT article recently about the courts, and especially SCOTUS, poised to strip regulatory agencies of states, the E.P.A and other agencies of their ability to limit climate changing emissions. Read the reinstatement of coal fired electrical plants. The article outlines the placement of conservative judges to steer the subject into the conservative Supreme Court.
The argument is the Congress should be the source of these regulations. The reality is, Congress ceded regulation to the agencies that did the research and the math that no one in Congress has the expertise to engage in. Long story short, our bad air will become worse.
The title to my new car came in the mail this week. I took it and my old plates to the DMV last Monday, and saw that although our DMV's are independent of government, they observed the Juneteenth holiday. Good for them. I went back yesterday and transferred my old plates to my new car.
Jan and Tom are stopping by on Sunday. I already made sure Tom will bring some tool that makes noise to replace the temporary tags with my old faithful set.
I just went to the web for a picture of my plate type. Ohio issues too many kinds of plates, in my opinion. And I learned that the state is now recalling my old plate as being so old the printing is degenerating. Well, they haven't told me...yet.
