Potted White Spruce Trees

Potted White Spruce Trees
I knew we were to get rain, but I didn't expect it to be an on and off event the entire day, which made for some uncomfortable moments while outdoors. When looking at how high the water is getting in the streams and rivers, I'd say we're close to having enough for now.The only appointment I had in real estate was a mid-afternoon one which allow … continue reading

When He Fights All The Harder

When He Fights All The Harder
Isn't this weather getting to be a bit much? I'm beginning to wonder if Putin's so-called "secret weapon" is having developed a way to alter our weather patterns. For sure all the wild fires which have already started in Siberia will have an effect on our weather patterns because all that smoke along with the pollution in China, gets blown over on … continue reading

Going Into Battle Against the Orcs

Going Into Battle Against the Orcs
Our weather is making me feel like we're caught in a "Groundhog Day" scenario where it's repeating itself day after day. The rain we received last night was more than I was expecting, especially when seeing the creeks and waterways filling. When looking at the weather forecast today, it looks like we'll be rainless tomorrow, but then back at it aga … continue reading

The Dirty Circles of Money

The Dirty Circles of Money
In spite of it being warmer, the wind was back at it again today, and as the day rolled on, it seemed to be picking-up speed. Without even bringing it up, I happened to run into a past customer and while visiting with her, she also mentioned her never recalling a winter and Spring as windy as these two seasons have been. Yes, we had a cold April la … continue reading

Shipping To The Far Reaches of Russia

Shipping To The Far Reaches of Russia
It wasn't until late in the day when our temps finally started rising, which meant we all had to be warmly togged while out this morning and early afternoon. That wind was something else. While holding a door for some deliveries to a home today, I had to bundle up even more because that wind was going right thru me. In spite of our thermometers rea … continue reading

They Took A Hefty Loss

They Took A Hefty Loss
I'm beginning to think many of us have resigned ourselves to these cold, windy and gray days. If and when summer does arrive, we'll be having to rapidly adjust ourselves to the heat. You can be sure I'll be enjoying every pleasant day that happens to arrive. Someone told me today that our farmers are likely going to have a late planting season beca … continue reading

Before Jumping In Bed With Him

Before Jumping In Bed With Him
Well, the wind was back at it with a vengeance again today which I'm chalking up as another glaring example of climate change. From what I've heard, we're supposed to have wind like this again tomorrow. It's going to be an interesting summer if these winds persist because that'll mean our crops are going to need more water to sustain them from the … continue reading

The Aftereffects from 77 Years Ago

The Aftereffects from 77 Years Ago
We started our day with gray skies and a little rain, but not long after the strong winds arrived again, but this time out of the south. Can you believe it was seventy-six degrees in the Downtown this afternoon? Talk about a big swing in temps over the last 24 hours.My entire morning and part of my afternoon was spent showing homes in Hancock C … continue reading

Hired Assassins In Uniform

Hired Assassins In Uniform
The cloudy skies and rain returned once again, so I guess yesterday's sunshine and warmth was just another one of Mother Nature's teasers. I did notice my least favorite trees which are the Silver Maples, have miraculously budded and now dropping their bud-heads on our City streets. That was a definite over-night happening with those nasty things. … continue reading

Putinizing In An American Style

Putinizing In An American Style
We were finally given a welcome reprieve today with there being little or no wind and cloudless skies. When talking with a customer of mine today, we both mentioned how much our trees and shrubs are behind with their budding stages when realizing we're only a little over a week away from it being the first of May. Enjoy this day as much as you can … continue reading
