It was a bit surprising when awakening and finding I wasn't filled with all the many aches and pains from yesterday's shoveling. I hurriedly readied myself for the day, and then headed off to an early church Service, but before pulling out of my … continue reading

My desire to get all the shoveling done as early as possible, ended up being quite fortuitous when finding the temps continuing to drop as I was nearing the end of my extended marathon of snow removal. I have no idea what's going on now with the snow … continue reading

My Mother’s Spirit
I'm sure many of your workplaces were closed early due to the weather today, and in spite of it, I had two appointments to look at several homes that'll be coming on the market in the near future. I had to laugh when hearing both of them saying, "I w … continue reading

Poor Man’s Oak

Poor Man’s Oak
The minus eight below zero this morning was something that made us bundle up and move all the faster while outdoors. As I've said many times, once it gets near or below the mark of zero, I grow downright hateful of winter, because it's never fit for … continue reading

It looks like starting tomorrow, we're going to be on a roller-coaster ride with this weather when hearing it's going to be well below zero tonight, cold tomorrow, and then followed by an all-day snowstorm that's supposed to drop up to nine inches on … continue reading

It wasn't the most pleasant sight when looking out and seeing snow this morning. At first I thought it wasn't much more than an inch, but when I walked outdoors, I found there to be more. It's a good thing I got to the office about an hour earlier, b … continue reading

I was happy to find the temps in the teens when I left home this morning, and even though it was only about seven degrees warmer than yesterday, it was all the more enduring, and likely because the wind wasn't blowing.My first order of the day wa … continue reading

We’re Sliding Back

We’re Sliding Back
Twas a bit nippy out this morning when finding it remaining down in the single digit temperatures until about noon. I'm really hoping we're not going to have another arctic vortex like we had last winter, because that was very scary. At least the sun … continue reading

Once Water-logged

Once Water-logged
I'm hoping this predicted snow is going to miss us because from what I read, it was supposed to start snowing at 5:00 pm today if we were to get any. Unfortunately, that exceptionally damp air made it feel much colder than it actually was. We're goin … continue reading

Possibly Goat Cheese
In spite of it still being cold outdoors this morning, it sure started warming up nicely as the day rolled on. As much as the sun attempted to send down beams upon us, the cloud cover was just too great. Each time it would get past a thick clump, it … continue reading
