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

Postage Stamp Lot

It must've been so soft of a rain in the night to the point where it didn't even awaken me. With this continued heat wave, all of Nature is beginning to awaken from winter's rest. I had to make a quick trip out of town early this morning, and while on the highways and blacktops, I couldn't help noticing all the activity going on with the grain truc … continue reading

It started out being a bit of a cool morning, but as our day rolled on, it warmed up to another staggering 80+ degrees, but of course the wind had to start picking up again as our temps began rising. Just today I read where much of Europe had record-breaking temps in March, but now they're being hit with below normals. Hmm...It sounds like the wobb … continue reading

The last time I checked, it was 82 degrees outdoors in the Downtown. Now isn't that something for our record books? As far as I'm concerned, this is too fast of a change from Winter to Spring.After getting my Sunday morning spiritual exercise completed, I changed my clothes and headed out to work on a number of various jobs I had lined up on th … continue reading

Plagued by a Gut

Plagued by a Gut
It was very much a relief to find the wind having died down and our temps rapidly rising this morning, which afforded me an opportunity to get some cleaning-up done at the back of my office. It seems no matter how much I try to keep all that blown-in trash picked up which accumulates in that area, there always seems to be more arriving. It certainl … continue reading

The temps were slowly creeping up to a tolerable level today, and if only the wind wasn't blowing so hard, it would've been a fine one. When looking at this weekend's forecast, it appears our temps aren't going to be as high as earlier predicted. I'm actually glad they won't be, as it's not good to have such drastic temperature changes in nature. … continue reading

Beloved Care-taking

Beloved Care-taking
This chill is continuing to haunt us, but at least it appears to be on its way out, and then replaced by what looks like above-normal temps for this time of year. This is the season where we find ourselves winter-bundled in the morning, and whenafter our sun gets high and we're out of the wind, our heavy outerwear becomes a bit too much.My firs … continue reading
