The overcastiness is making it feel a bit more wintry here, but the dryness is working against that feeling. The good news is that the chance of rain on Saturday has been boosted back up to 90%.

Now I feel bad about scaring her, though I'd say my hand feels worse. I once had some stuff I could spray on scratches, but I haven't been able to find it. If Portia scratched me more often I'm sure I'd remember where it was. So it's all her fault for not being aggressive.
