A little misty rain out there, dark clouds.the wind is whipping pretty good.
55 degrees right now.
We will be hanging out in the mid to upper 50s temperature wise.
West-southwest wind around nine.

We've already seen our high temperature come and go early this morning.
We were in the 60s well before daybreak and then the temperature dropped a bit.

If they have these little crabs out there and come up every day.
And deliver them.
You know what i'm saying?
There's not a postal service in the middle of the atlantic.
>> ange: and they didn't have elegance picking up or an airplane.
I don't know.

Did they mail it before they left?
>> ange: it was written the day before it sank.
>> ron: then they were out in the water.

Now that's nothing.

It was really easy to do.
I'd borrow an ipod in order to get a song off of there, computer was like, sorry.
