Chilly this morning. Getting ready to leave pa behind. Met Rachael yesterday at Hershey park. Went on five rollercoasters in fast succession. The last one put us both over the edge. Thankfully it was both of us. I'd feel bad if it was just me and that she still had energy for more. The first coaster was omg the scariest, craziest.

Gas stations

I guess it's against the law to automatically fill your gas at the pump in Massachusetts. I know it's against the law in New York because there are signs posted on all the pumps about it. They are very serious about it in New York. Almost threatening in fact. In Massachusetts they merely remove the lever thing that allows you to automatically fill your tank, making it impossible. You must stand there and squeeze the pump handle the whole time. Why is that? What's the problem with having it automatically fill?

Fall colors

An observation..... Seems like Massachusetts's folks don't pay much attention to the school speed limit. Maybe they don't see the school zone signs announcing the reduced speed limit of 20 mph when school is in session. But they don't even slow down when the yellow lights are flashing! How do they miss that sign? I guess they just don't care.  I'm used to cops pulling you over for going 22 mph through a school zone. Here, cops will apparently pull you over for not stopping for a pedestrian in a crosswalk, but not for speeding through a school zone. Odd.
