Well, it's hard to complain, seeing as so many other places are faring so much worse than we are, but the Sweet Spot is definitely dealing with some icebox-like temps today. It was 25 degrees when I got up this morning, and the mid 30's is about all we can expect to see for a high today. We'll likely be dealing with winds of 8-10 mph over much of the day as well, so it's just goping to be cold out there. Still have one more dose of prime rib and good old house made horseradish sauce waiting in the fridge, and maybe a last helping of loaded mashed potatoes, though the wife might have finished those off with her reheated ribeye last night. Pretty sure she knocked out the last of the carrot cake as well, but there will be some ooey-gooey chocolate cake still on standby for sure.
In less happy matters, some of these alt-right Capitol rioters are making court appearances now, and many of them are hanging their hats on the excuse that President Ding Ding told them to do it. It seems ever more clear that, without regard to the cowardly acts of spineless Republicans, the Fat boy was indeed the impetus behind the armed insurection that ghastly Ron Johnson is so fervently trying to hide from. What a pair of America-hating losers he and Trump make.
In other news, the Nats have signed lefty reliever TJ McFarland (31) to a minor league deal. He's served as 'organizational depth' for several teams (most recently, OAK), and that's his likely role with the Nats as well. The less we need to use him in whatever 2021 looks like, the better.
The less anyone sees of Falls Church City the better as well of course. The Extra Sorry City is already long mired in a virtual cesspool of ignorance and inferiority, and today's disgraceful crop of resident babbling idiots will not soon be reversing the situation. Imagine that some living nearby had for years been unaware that Karaoke Idol had closed, that Luzmary had opened, or that predatory towing was notoriously going on at Northside Social. Same gang of clowns is still unaware of Brockmont, never ate at Brine, and insists upon cruelly ruining perfectly good portions of branzino.
Folks like these know better...
