Out of Season

Out of Season
When I awakened around midnight and looked outdoors, I was shocked to see it snowing and even more so when I got up this morning.  I distinctly remember reading the forecast several days ago and it mentioned "possible" light snow.  Well, I'd say to … continue reading

From his Tailgate

From his Tailgate
Thank goodness the sun finally came out and ended up being above zero nearly all day today. It certainly showed by the number of people out and about because it appeared as if half our population suddenly awakened from a deep hibernation.  Thinking … continue reading

Frigid Friday

Frigid Friday
As I was driving to work I viewed yet another spectacular set of sun dogs in the eastern sky.  This morning's was a repeat of a set I spotted about two weeks ago.  Never before in my life have I seen them as large as they have been this year.  It … continue reading

2019 Valentine’s Day

2019 Valentine’s Day
I was shocked to see how quickly our weather changed when seeing it went from a delightful morning and afternoon, to a very windy evening.  I couldn't believe how quickly the roads started drifting over.  Hopefully our City workers will be out earl … continue reading

Thank goodness the wind stopped blowing, but soon realized this morning I had to do some re-shoveling due to overnight drifting. At least the sun was shining brightly which made the cold more bearable.  Having not seen it in some days, it seemed all … continue reading

Like a Quiet Kitten

Like a Quiet Kitten
I guess I was off by about 24 hours when thinking it was going to snow last night when now seeing it starting to snow.  There were appointments cancelled earlier today because of a winter weather advisory which claimed we were supposed to be getting … continue reading

Each One Of Us

Nearly my entire day was spent in my office or somewhere nearby.  I figured it was time to get some organizing and cleaning done while some free time was available.  It's amazing how quickly the hours pass while focusing all the more on getting thi … continue reading

Cold Catch

Cold Catch
The first thing I had on my agenda was to go out and check on several vacant homes this morning since I was freaked out yesterday after seeing that frozen house with its hot water heating system.  Thank goodness they looked just fine and glad for it … continue reading

Sun Doggies

Sun Doggies
We certainly had quite the cold day, but at least the sun was shining, and if only that wind would've gone down, I would say it could've been a pleasant after-the-storm day. One positive thing was my being able to take the above photo of this morning … continue reading

The More you Blink

The More you Blink
It looks like tonight's going to be another hellacious one where this Alberta Clipper is going to be moving a whole lot of snow around, and definitely not where we want it to be tomorrow morning.  Once again, I'd say we're a good month late in havin … continue reading
