Election Day, 2007

Well, it's definitely a November day today. The rain's been constant since early morning, the wind has dropped the last of the fading leaves and the house definitely has needed some assistance in providing us its warmth. Yup, it's November.

Today is also election day and for the first time in my life I saw my name on an official Portland Ballot. Now, that was a strange experience. I've been in a number of elections over the years beginning in high school and college but nothing as formal as this one. It was a low key election with not too much back alley fog being created which fits Peaks Island. It was to see who would serve on the very first Peaks Island Council to provide formal input to the Portland City Council. In short and in Portland's words (my version of them at least), we'll give you this so please don't make any more trouble for us by trying to secede again. The island breathlessly awaits the outcome and individuals will definitely gather at the voting site to see the outcome; will the progressives or conservatives prevail or will it be a blend of both sides? Frankly, I always saw it as winning the opportunity to be a human pin cushion. Oh well, something to do in the winter to keep things lively!!

As the leaves fall and the boats are pulled from the water it's time to begin plugging the cracks and lowering the shades at night to keep the heat in. November has definitely arrived. Stay warm and dry everyone.
