I never noticed fog from our apartment windows this morning. However, it was completely overcast. Right around noon we had or first sustained dose of sunshine therapy.
We called some friends to invite then over for a game of Fast Track. But, because they were having four rooms in their house painted, they were unable to come other today. We told them that it is an open ended invitation. We just asked then to call first in the off-chance that we might not be home.
