It happened to be a chilly-gray morn along with some fog in the mix while driving to work which had me a bit dis-appointed, but at least we did see the sun return shortly after noontime arrived. I'm glad we didn't get the snow they predicted, but it sounds like there may be another possibility of a little, early tomorrow morning. Perhaps March will … continue reading

Their Own Standards

Their Own Standards
Another light-thaw happened today which was just fine by me because we need these gradual thaws to keep from having flood issues. It's also good for our soil, as more of it gets absorbed than there'd be if we should have a sudden heat wave, and then finding it rapidly over-loading our storm sewers, and later filling our creeks and rivers to their b … continue reading

I was wondering why it looked so bright outdoors before the sun came up this morning, but when looking in our western sky, I could see the moon nearly full, so I checked my calendar, and sure enough, we're going to have a full moon tomorrow. Over these long years of selling real estate, I have noticed more activity during this phase of our moon, bu … continue reading

Tired Tunes
Only three more days to go and we'll be out of the month of February, and all the happier for it when looking back at those bitterly cold days which never seemed to end. Oh well, our climate is changing, and there's no alternative other than learning to adapt as best we can.I forgot to mention an article I recently read which was even more trou … continue reading

Temporary Clotheslines

Temporary Clotheslines
Another beauty of a day came and went, and if this warming trend continues, we shouldn't be having any flooding early this Spring from a rapid melt-off, which'll be good for everyone. Yes, we'll more than likely be dumped on a few more times before it's all over, but at least we're getting gradual melts. I'm still reeling from those many days of su … continue reading

The Dark Hole

The Dark Hole
While out driving this afternoon, I was delighted to find it 43 degrees, which certainly helped to melt the snow off our streets and sidewalks. Of course I had to run my car thru a carwash again today due to all that splattering from those many pickup trucks with no mud-flaps we have running around our town. It's too bad our Country doesn't have mu … continue reading

Black with Crows
Wasn't it absolutely delightful when seeing our temps nearing forty degrees today? Of course the first thing I had to do this morning, was to get all my shoveling done before it started turning into snow-cone snow from our warming sun. It went much faster than I expected, and glad for it because I had enough other things to do besides scooping snow … continue reading

Inland Migration

Inland Migration
As was predicted, we have snow, but much more than I was expecting, so it looks like I'm going to be a busy little bee with my shoveling projects tomorrow. In spite of the predicted above-freezing temps tomorrow, I've learned these recent years, not to believe all weather reports.After getting my contemplative prayer session completed, it was t … continue reading

Lingering Brain Fog

Lingering Brain Fog
It was a bit of a nippy five below zero this morning, and didn't seem to want to warm up until after noontime arrived, and in spite of not having all that much to do this morning, the time seemed to fly by to where I was having to cut a phone conversation short for fear I'd be late getting to my public open house.I did have to run down to 1707 … continue reading

It looks like Mother Nature is going to keep these warming days coming thru the end of this month, and yes, we may be getting more snow, but at least there won't be many inches all at once. A meteorologists mentioned the last toe-hold our wobbling jet stream has on our Nation, is in northeast Iowa, as well as parts of Wisconsin and Minnesota, until … continue reading
