WidowsWeave Day 7 - Ohio St Beach

15,300 lines

Today was warm with only light drizzle for a part of the time.  I was not distracted by the weather at all but rather by the free parking I had found.   It annoyed me that the syntax of the sign left a small doubt in my mind as to whether or not I would get towed.  The lingering doubt filled the void left by the lack of bad weather, causing me to think of Solzhenietsyn's Gulag Archipelago  and our ability to occupy the mind under whatever are  the circumstances.
