As the Labor Day weekend winds down, I hope you all find yourselves satisfied with the past few days. I find myself satisfied to a point where I am not really even ready to get back to blogging yet. So, in the spirit of making this weekend stretch as much as possible, I am going to write just a mini blog post tonight. How mini? Take a typical Thursday Rundown blog post and just about cut it in half. This evening I just catch you up on a few matters with a three item post.

How I Spent My Labor Day Weekend – Most of my holiday weekend was spent at the beach. My brother-in-law’s family owns a condo in North Myrtle Beach. This particular condo sits practically right on the ocean. On Saturday and Sunday, Sidney and I joined Steph and Jon plus their kids and my in-laws for some fun on the shore. We relaxed at a nice spot and watched the kids have fun. After the beach activities last night we ate seafood inside the condo and then went out for ice cream afterwards.

Hurricane Hermine – Gold bless the meteorologists because what they predicted to happen pretty much did in fact happen. As I mentioned in my latest Thursday Rundown, Hurricane Hermine was supposed to hit us on Friday afternoon and then move out by Saturday morning. If you want to get technical, everything probably happened a few hours before it was forecast to happen. The heavy rain came during the late morning on Friday. It rocked our area throughout the rest of the day. If you got a chance, take a look at my Facebook page and view the live broadcast I did from outside our house. However, by the time we awoke on Saturday morning you would have never known that a hurricane had threatened the Grand Strand area. It was blue and sunny skies. It stayed perfect throughout the duration of the weekend.

Football Results – First and foremost, I just want to say I feel bad for my dad and brother. They made the trip down to Pullman to watch Washington State play Eastern Washington. Those two poor Cougar fans made the late drive back to Spokane disappointed as the FCS Eagles upset WSU. What a bitter pill to swallow. In other disappointments, Notre Dame lost that overtime heartbreaker to Texas last night. However, the football weekend wasn’t a total wash. Coastal Carolina played a dynamite second half and won on the road in Texas against Lamar. To add to the good news, Montana opened up with a home victory over St. Francis.
