Time to wake up


OK folks, my first Sox related post of the year. I just wanted to say how frustrating it is as a fan to watch a team that has so much potential, squander so many opportunities in the last week or two. I'm not sure I've ever seen so many men left on base, inning after inning, where's the timely hitting? Heck, watching Ortiz fly out on the first pitch in back to back at bats, I just don't know...

Pitching, well everyone has a bad day, they all just happened at the same time, and the Sox are with out an established stopper, so you just go with it. All in all though I have to tip my hat to Clement, Bronson, and Miller. Wakes has been his old self too, tonight was a tough loss but it's not like the Unit didn't give the Sox an opportunity to take this one.

Tomorrow is another day. Go Sox!

Will it ever stop?

Welcome to Maine, here's your rain jacket...

Or at least that's what is feels like. We are entering our fourth (I think it's four) straight week of rain. It's getting to the point where when you make small talk about the weather you talk about the fact that it only sprinkled yesterday instead of the downpour that's happening today! I think we have had two days of sun, each of which has been capped by showers in the evening.

Heck, even the Portland paper's headline today was about how all this sour weather is effecting peoples moods.

I have a pallet full of shingles waiting to be installed and the clapboards are ordered for the front but god only knows when we will be able to install them, not to mention the painting...

Ugh, I'm tired of this weather.

Heat and Wire
