Dear X-Air and WeatherCat fans of π

Nice sale at Take Control booksThU32:-)

I don't get it?  Don't ya' mean pies like this?

I never thought I would see a supermarket ad based on a mathematical symbol . . . .  [rolleyes2]

And the early arrival of Spring! High today was 74.4F! [rolleyes2] :o

That's cheatin'! Spring isn't officially here for 6 days!

Actually, there is one more disagreeable event associated with PI day.  My alma mater U.C. Berkeley is having a major fund raiser directed at the alumni.  So what did my esteemed institution choose as a slogan to go along with my intellectually sophisticated Ph.D.?   They couldn't of anything more uplifting than "The Big Give"  [rolleyes2]

https://biggive.berkeley.edu/

So why is the supposedly #1 public university in the world forced to stoop to a slogan that hardly seem mature enough for even middle school children?

Needless to say, neither my wallet or I were fooled by this silly business.

Oh well, . . . . . Edouard

That stuff seems to be coming from clouds! Might help to spread a large tarp over your property. I think we still have certain "air rights" for the column of air above our property. You might check local authorities and find the party responsible for the clouds. [computer] Locally, we don't allow stuff like that except for a maximum number of days per year. We also have quantity/depth limits as well as a maximum number of consecutive days. You might also have property owners rules or covenants that further restrict this kind of invasion. [banghead] Good luck! And be very careful, I'm still not sure what that stuff is but it can be very slippery on roads and sidewalks! :o I suggest staying inside as much as possible, preferably with a cozy fire! [tup]
