And they come with no warning,
nature loves her little surprises.
Continual crisis!

It's a Beautiful Day

Polls are open. Everybody duck and cover! Got up early to get into work early so I can leave (somewhat) on time so I can vote. And just like John Scalzi I'm looking forward to getting my life back.

Oh, and early results are back from some towns in Vermont. Looks good so far for my candidate (Obama 15, McCain 7, Nader 0 - editopps, got it wrong, Obama 15, McCain 6).

I can't wait to have a government I don't feel like I have to watch like a hawk.

Cool! So did I Random Michelle, I was vote #388 in my Village.

Not sure what number I was. We didn't vote until 9:30

But I've never seen so many people voting before!

Well, I hit the polls at about 5pm. Last fall I voted at a little after six and I was #17. We have optical scan sheets, the preliminary scan device tells you which number you are. I had to hit the button that says I know I didn't vote for one office (sheriff, just couldn't bring myself to vote for him, and he ran unopposed).

I did that for several offices, and wrote in "None of the Above" for two offices.
