Butterfingers. Because we ended up at home last night, I sent hubby to buy Halloween candy. Among the candy he brought back were Butterfingers.
The scale says I'm up 6 pounds today.
Now, of course I didn't eat 6 pounds worth of Butterfingers. But I did eat a bunch of them, and then too much of other things. It's mostly water weight, and it will disappear soon.
But from now on I know that when I send him out for Halloween candy, the instructions will include, "And no Butterfingers!"

Well, we survived the storm pretty well. The one casualty was our wireless router--making me REALLY glad I'd insisted on unplugging the entertainment center. We've replaced the router now, but our ISP is still down, so all I have to Spark on is my phone. Not what you call loads if fun, this one-finger typing.
When we went to the store, we could tell that we are among the lucky ones. Lots of branches down and sporadic power outages. Our attempt to get to Best Buy was thwarted by lack of power, but the Stores across the parking lot had power. Saw some damaged roofs, but mostly it's just power outages here. Down by the lake there was apparently considerably more damage, but a mile inland we are good.
I can't get any work done without the Internet, so instead all the sheets and towels are getting washed and other housework getting done.
Hope everyone else is faring well.

Arrived at client's house. She is holding back a barking beagle. "Do you remember her, boy?" She says. I reach out my hand and he sniffs it and licks me.
"Wow!" she says. "That was great! He's an attack dog. Good boy, not biting!"
Which, yay. But WHO DOES THAT?! Shouldn't there have been a "careful, he bites"?!

Well, I made my 2,000 miles of biking goal before the weather turned really nasty. In fact, yesterday I had one of the best rides ever--it was twilight, and very still, and I felt like I was sort of floating along instead of actually pedaling.
But tonight is the monthly Critical Mass ride, which I intended to do. Except it looks like it's going to be chilly and rainy. And I'm not sure I'm so dedicated to biking that I'm willing to go out in the dark AND the cold *AND* the rain.
Maybe two out of three.
It does make me extra glad that I finished my pledged miles, though, because I don't think I'm going to be one of those cyclists who keeps going despite of snow and ice and such. There's simply nothing fun about riding in those conditions, and at that point the control of drivers starts to seriously scare me.
Still, I can hope for another mild winter and that biking season is nice and long.
