The Caretaker's Concern 2/3/08 Ghetto temp. 55 F. and steady Island tmp. 35 F. Yesterday's L/H: 26/32 F. Current conditions: Little to no wind, complete cloud coverage.
It has been a mostly colorless day. The cloud coverage has been so thick that the sun only appeared vaguely for a few moments. The diffused light stripped most all of the color from the scenery. Mostly a day of gray and white. The Caretaker spent the day in front of the fire in the main house giving his kerosene heater a complete overhaul. A pleasant day of repose.
