It’s getting hard out here, lord. I feel like Bill Murray in the movie “Groundhog Day,” where every morning when I wake up, I’m forced to deal with some goofy rodent with orange hair crawling out of his hole to tell me it’s gonna be gray & crappy for the next four years. I have actually had to figure out how to turn my notifications off on my phone just to quiet the electrical waves. The mind tends to reel with all these sounds of the machine cranking.

And it is cranking — LOUDLY. Like it might throw a rod…
