About Me, unemployment

Happy (snowy) Friday

Greetings!

I am a state South of home in Oregon today, helping a parent recover from knee replacement surgery. The Western US is has been hit with an Arctic cold front this week. Daytime highs in the 30’s and lows in the low-mid 20’s have been the norm. And today, most of Oregon is getting hit with snow. It just started falling in earnest here:

(Hard to capture falling snow with my camera phone, but it’s there.)

What else is going on? The House and Senate are closing in on a budget deal that would hopefully resolve the budget crisis–but it has been blocked by House Democrats over the renewal of Emergency Unemployment Compensation for 1.3 Million Americans (which will rise to 2.1 Million in early 2014).

Other than that, I haven’t done a bit of Christmas shopping yet. I suppose this should be anxiety inducing–it normally would be–but thus far it isn’t. I’ll make a list, check it twice, and head online this weekend.

Have a great weekend! Hope it’s warmer where you are.
