Hello from Day 60 of the current California COVID constant curfew! They say it’s going to be really windy starting tonight and into tomorrow. They say it’ll be sustained 25MPH+ winds and 40MPH+ gusts. It can’t help but bring to mind the old saying: When a window is left open, a door closes. Loudly.
Yesterday I missed COACT, COOPT, LAPTOP, LOATH, OATH, PACT, PLOT, TACT, TALC, TOCCATA, and TOPCOAT.
