Portland Weather

It got down to 47 last night, currently 59 at 10:21am. Road surface has puddles and dry spots, hasn't precipitated since I got up. Sky is gray, mostly flat surface, a few thinner spots, hardly moving. No wind. It's 70 inside my office and I haven't turned on the heat today. Deeper inside the apartment it's in the 80's. I turned off the fire.

We are also covering strain/counterstrain of the cervical extensors, anterior and middle scalenes, SCM, upper trapezius, levator scapula, masseter and lateral pterygoid. We may have to demonstrate Positional Isometric Relaxation technique on the extensors, scalenes, SCM and traps, levator and masseter.
