Good afternoon, everyone, it's 5:20pm. Sorry I've been gone for the last few days, but as I've said before, I'm busy with my college life and I have a lot going on in my personal life. Actually, my personal life has somewhat gotten in the way of my college life, too, but I'm working on that. Anyway, it's a mostly cloudy afternoon with temps in the upper 30s, and tonight will go into the 20s with partly cloudy skies. It seems like it's a little warmer out then it has been lately, but that's a good thing. It'll melt all this snow we've gotten sooner. It's supposed to get warmer this week, to about 50 on Sunday actually. Speaking of Sunday, we change our clocks an hour ahead on Saturday night. Spring ahead, fall back. It'll be getting lighter later in the morning now, unfortunately for me, but it won't be getting dark in the evening until 7pm. Summer's definitely not far :). Lastly, I'm blogging 25 this evening, from now until I guess my bedtime. We'll see, though. Well, with that, here's crime for this late afternoon and evening.
