TIL that, yes, it can get down to 48 degrees F this close to the end of summer. Brrrrrr.

^I delighted in the drearily autumnal weather myself; cool weather is so much more conducive to fashion than heat -- so say my hunter green sweater dress, black leather ankle boots, and black bowler hat.

If nothing else the 40-something wet weather gives me a perfect excuse to wear my thick, beloved grey hoodie. All the Snuggies on earth combined can't come close to matching the plush comfort and toastiness of this thing.

TIL that I am, in fact, kind of color blind. I took this test and did really badly. Also, I found out that Sesame Street's Ernie is orange, not brown. This has rocked my whole worldview.
