Driving In This Howling Wind

Driving In This Howling Wind
Another day of yo-yoing weather has taken place, and I'm just not so sure how dangerous the streets and roads are going to be when tomorrow arrives. When out driving this afternoon, at one moment it was raining, and the next my windshield was getting pelleted with frozen sleet. I'm hoping everyone made it home without any ditch-diving or fender-ben … continue reading

My Cherished Assortment of Mpingo Wood Carvings

My Cherished Assortment of Mpingo Wood Carvings
I mentioned to a colleague of mine today how I believe this winter has had far more windy days than we've normally had in the past, and after a moment, it was agreed upon.  Every time I was out of doors today, that biting wind was enough to take my breath away, which is why I try to keep my mouth covered whenever out in such cold. Of course the we … continue reading

Back in the Middle Ages

Back in the Middle Ages
It was a rather uneventful day with our chilly temps and overcast skies, and whenever outdoors today, I had to be exceptionally careful when encountering those large patches of ice in and around our Downtown. I think that unusual rain we had about a week or so ago, helped to create those very slick patches, and after hearing about that unfortunate … continue reading

You’re Outta Here

You’re Outta Here
In spite of our temps rising above freezing today, it sure didn't feel like it because that wind was strong and damp, and no matter how much I tried to stay out of it, the more it seemed to find me. For whatever reason, this winter has been one where the cold seems to radiate into homes and buildings more than normally. I'm thinking it's because th … continue reading

Happy Valentine’s Day of 2022

Happy Valentine’s Day of 2022
Another chilly day arrived, but at least it started back on another warming trend this afternoon. When talking about the coming potholes, there's already two of them on the highway in front of Walgreens which I made sure to go around because one of them looked pretty deep. It's almost magic when seeing how quickly they appeared, so let's hope the D … continue reading

It’s a Greater Key to Success

It’s a Greater Key to Success
Another below zero morning arrived, so yours truly donned my extra layer of clothing which seems to be those ever-ready items to grab before heading out the door. The light dusting of snow we received last night wasn't the least bit welcomed because it blanketed slick patches of ice, and more than once while out shoveling, I had to catch myself jus … continue reading

Books are Like Imprisoned Souls

Books are Like Imprisoned Souls
You can bet I wasn't liking this morning's minus seven below zero, but at least the strong wind of last night did lower itself down to not much more than a whisper. We're fast approaching the middle of February which should finally bring to an end these days of biting cold.Come Spring, it'll be interesting to see how well our trees and shrubs h … continue reading

Really Good DNA

Really Good DNA
Gee, do you think we've had enough of this yo-yoing weather this winter? I couldn't believe how pleasant it was again while driving to work, but not two hours later, the wind changed directions and started blowing that strong and bitterly cold air which managed to turn that large puddle of melted snow at the back of my office, into my personal ice … continue reading

Waiting to be Served Their Moose Tacos

Waiting to be Served Their Moose Tacos
For sure it was one of those days where I was either a few minutes early, or twenty minutes behind on things I wanted to get accomplished. In spite of my having arrived at office early, the morning went so fast to where I wondered where those hours had gone when noticing it was already nearing eleven. Yes, there were several appointments at office … continue reading

The La Brea Tar Pits

The La Brea Tar Pits
It was a delightful drive to office this morning with our temps hovering around thirty-seven degrees and no slippery roads to navigate. It sounds like we may be getting a smattering of snow tomorrow, but from the sounds of it, it'll be all melted off on Friday. Yes, as the days grow longer and we get closer to Spring, we know fully-well any snow ac … continue reading
