Look! It's my larch tree . . . coming back to life!
(This amazes me every year.)
(I don't know why I should be so amazed. It's a native tree, and this is what they do. But still.)
By the time you read this post, I will be hard at work at today's special election.
There is only ONE issue on the ballot: a millage renewal request.
And that translates into . . . a very long - and likely very slow - day at the polls.
I'll have my knitting. And a book. And the NYTimes crossword puzzle (from Sunday).
But it's gonna be a long, long day.
Here's the guessing game: How many total voters will vote where I'm working today?
(Hints: I'll be working in a location that is combining TWO precincts for this election. It's in a fairly "polictically active" area of the city, and turnout is generally high, although it is not expected to be high for this election. The issue being voted on is not controversial, and has not garnered media attention. The population of Portage is 49,000, and there are 20 voting precincts in the city.) (Oh. And the weather forecast is for rain. All day. . . )
Leave your guess in the comments. There will be a prize!
