Snow fell here in beautiful Farmington Hills, Michigan and actually stuck to the grass and cars today. It looks like somewhere between 1/4 and 1/2 an inch in accumulation. November 2 is a little early for this sort of thing, though it's not the first measurable snow we've had this year. No one brought gloves and we're all hoping we left ice scrapers in our cars since last winter.

In other news, tonight I have to go through the bureaucratic hell of open enrollment for company health insurance benefits for 2007. I hope there's a button I can click for "Same as 2006," but I'm sure there won't be, so it'll be an hour or more of clicking through a badly designed web application to verify that I don't have children to cover and I don't want group legal insurance. I guess it's for my own good, huh?

Edit, 7:40 p.m. (EST): It only took me 15 minutes to do open enrollment. There wasn't a single button to re-pick my 2006 options, but each option came with them as my personal default. Apologies for the complaint.

Normally an "open enrollment" only applies to those who want to change things. It should default to continuing what you presently have without any action on your part.

They make us go in and confirm. If I'd done nothing, I would've ended up with no coverage at all in 2007. This was true even though we have all the same plans as last year. But I guess I have less to complain about, because they changed all the plans each of the previous two years.

And get this: All along they've been saying we had through 11/3 to finish. But the site was closed at noon today. No one ever mentioned that it wasn't open through the end of the business day.

No, I really wouldn't like a single-payer system. I'm having way too much fun now. </sarcasm>
