Every time we have voted since we've lived here, it has rained. Despite a very warm autumn, the weather chose to change on election day this year. There was rain, snow, sleet, and hail, plus some pretty strong winds. We took the boys to vote with us, as we always do. Jon let Aleks press the Diebold touch screen for him and Bastian tried to knock my machine off the table it was perched on. Afterwards, as we have every election day these last three years, we visited Big Fun (though the photobooth was broken, so for the first time we couldn't get our picture taken), then ate at Tommy's. We also stopped at Mac's Backs to talk to Suzanne about The Best American Non-required Reading 2007 which I was just published in (page 13, Best American Six-Word Memoirs) and at Vidstar for Tuesday free kid videos. Then we went home and hunkered down against the cold. Brrrr!
