Happy Humpday, everyone. the street lamps are still glowing outside the window of our home office, which isn't a good sign for the rest of the day. Skilling Central concurs, with a forecast for heavy cloud cover, light rain and temperatures 20 degrees cooler than yesterday, brought on by high winds from the north-northeast.

Happy Birthday to the Chicago Theatre. The most recognizable of the Balaban & Katz local movie houses opened on this date 90 years ago today.
