It appears as though the northwest 'weather gods' have decided that it is payback time for all that nice weather we had this summer. We are in for the long haul of a wet winter. There was a bright surprise for us today as Markus unexpectedly dropped by. He was with some friends visiting at WWU last night and came home with them for the day. He is doing great at SPU, acing tests and making friends. He and Calvin joined some friends this afternoon for a sloppy game of Ultimate frisbee.
