My wife gave me a jacket from Sports Authority for my Birthday. She purchased it on November 10th. I've been really slammed over the last couple of weeks with shows so tonight (December 19th) was the first chance I had to return it. Well, it's been 39 days since it was purchased so my receipt was no longer valid. WHAT?!? They only accept returns for 30 days, with the receipt, and it must be unused in the original packaging.

Well I'm here in the vast wasteland that is Ellensburg, WA. It's a very dry environment here. Often in the 90's in the summer. But situated very close to the mountains so every afternoon winds come rushing down out of the pass. Today it's cold, cloudy, and the winds are blasting as usual.
