Good morning. It is sunny and 72 degrees here in the Upper Hudson Valley, the forecast predicts a sunny day with temperatures in the 80s this afternoon. It's like paradise around here today. I've been out for two walks already and it's just gorgeous out. Appreciate it while you can.
The stock market is closed for the holiday. Do notice that oil has been creeping up in price once again. After dipping to nearly $40 per barrel, oil is up to $46 and change.
