Room for a Pony

Room for a Pony
Another half-overcast day came and went, while this chill continues to remain in our air. I actually noticed a clump of tulips blooming in a very well-protected area of a building which offered some natural color to its dull landscape. I think we all got ourselves spoiled with those abnormally high temps of several weeks ago.I arrived at office … continue reading

Now Dagnabbit

Now Dagnabbit
There've been many who've believed April is always full of sunshine, fragrant showers, and blooming daffodils, but we must remember, we're living in Northern Iowa along with being in the midst of a climate change. In spite of the sun finally coming out in our late afternoon, for the most part, it was just but one miserable day. Here we are at the 1 … continue reading

Inland Migration

Inland Migration
These past days have felt like a recurring Ground Hog's Day with our overcast skies, strong winds, and biting cold. Some have said it's going to last thru the week, so I guess we just have to keep on grinning while bearing it.It was quite the busy morning for me with a number of errands I had to run, additional desk work, meeting with customers … continue reading

A Wooden Stake

A Wooden Stake
What a miserable day to be outdoors with our gray clouds and cold wind. Of course yours truly had to be out in it, but when one already has appointments scheduled, we just have to make the best of it.My early morning appointment was to get an offer signed by a young man who happened to have his diapered son with him. Oh how cute! Every time I'd … continue reading

When you’re Dead

When you’re Dead
Thinking this wind was going to die down, soon became a mindless desire when finding it blowing all the harder as the sun marched across our sky. I'm hoping it's not going to be like this for the remainder of our week, as those biting-cold gusts were chilling me to the bone, but at least the sun was shining and tricking us into believing it more be … continue reading

Would’ve Likely Worn His

Would’ve Likely Worn His
Our sun finally decided to come out when the day was half done, but at least we did get some rays which always helps to brighten our days. Since I had large amount of outdoor work to do, I was glad the north wind finally started dissipating around mid-morning.With it being Sunday morning, my first duty was to get myself back to my quiet little … continue reading

The King is Dead

The King is Dead
Well it wasn't a Saturday I would've wished for considering how overcast it was, as well as that north wind blowing chilling gusts, but let's hope tomorrow will be warmer and the wind not so strong, as I'd like to get some outdoor work done before the grass starts getting long, and the leafing-out of our trees and shrubs. I do have to keep remindin … continue reading

The Full Scoop

The Full Scoop
These temperature swings we're having, sure keeps us on our toes regarding what we should and shouldn't be wearing before we step outdoors. Without a doubt, today's dampness made us feel all the colder.The first item on my list of this morning's duties, was to head over to the home that I was to get closed before noontime, just so to get the lo … continue reading

From the Effort

From the Effort
I was exceptionally thankful our rain stopped all the sooner this morning, as there were several people in the midst of moving today, and we all know what it's like to be carrying furniture to and from an enclosed truck in the rain. I never checked to see how much we received, but it was enough to create some puddling around town.Nearly two hou … continue reading

To a New Low

To a New Low
Expecting our weather to be a repeat of these past several days, I made the mistake of dressing in a more summer fashion, and wouldn't you know, it wasn't, which left me half-chilled the entire day. Now if my mother were still alive, she'd be saying something like, "Now that's what you get for rushing summer." With rain in our forecast these coming … continue reading
