Good morning. It is 55 degrees and raining here in the Upper Hudson Valley, the forecast predicts rain and temperatures in the 60s this afternoon. The longer range forecast shows a week of rain with just a few breaks and temperatures in the 60s and 70s. Could this be the pattern of the rest of the Summer, it could be - lots of rain, and lots of rain. Given the effects of global warming, it seems like a possibility. It is lush out there, the green is very strong and the trees are growing and growing. Maybe this part of the country turns into a light rain forest, less humidity, milder temperatures, and lots of rain.
The market is closed on Memorial Day and will reopen on Tuesday.
What can we say. The country is feeling the effects of a man who has little organization, runs around in a chaotic way creating mayhem and mischief. The President of the United States is the emperor with no clothes on. The instability, lack of direction, lack of meaningful intent, lack of basic human kindness, I mean this mess is just plain old ugly. The GOP must step up already. Look boys, and it is mostly white guys, get somebody in the White House to read this man the riot act and impose a little direction and civility to this thing. This is a major disaster.
