Not much to report

I've had many slow chess days lately . . . too many I am afraid! I have a nice 5 day holiday coming up (Thanksgiving, plus one vacation day), so that'll be a good time to get some matches in.

Alas, winter has raised its ugly head here in Washington. Apparently it was down to 29 degrees here this morning. All the chess players in Dupont Circle are gone -- the true sign (at least to me) that the cold season has truly begun. I'll miss those guys (and girls -- a few!). It was always nice to come home and see them duking it out on the chess tables.

For those who don't know the Washington, DC area, here is a quick link to Dupont Circle where a lot of people play.
