A Classic Example Of A Sigma Male

A Classic Example Of A Sigma Male
It was below freezing early this morning, but not long after the sun came up, there was more thawing going on, so at least we had some additional moisture slowly soaking into the soil. As we're approaching the winter solstice, the sun is dropping all the lower in our southern sky. Living in the flatlands, one gets a better picture of how the low-an … continue reading

Unfortunately It Already Has Admirers

Unfortunately It Already Has Admirers
It was an up and out early again this morning, and only because I knew the whole day was going to be a free one, and wanting to take advantage of every hour possible. It was definitely a Thanksgiving morning filled with heavy fog and frosty roads, but at least it did finally clear off later in the morning. The combination of those two, made for eve … continue reading

A Dark Side To Gifting

A Dark Side To Gifting
It was another smiling sunny day today, but since it's the day before a holiday, there were two occasions where I was almost in an accident, and both times it was someone changing lanes and not paying attention to the car beside them. The second time it was on the highway and thank Heaven I noticed the woman turning towards me. Fortunately there wa … continue reading

One More Sign From The Other Side

One More Sign From The Other Side
Our weather continues to remain on the pleasant side considering we're over half-way thru the month. It does sound like we're going to have either rain, sleet or snow on Thanksgiving Day, so all of you who'll be traveling by car during the long weekend, please be mindful of our ever-changing weather conditions. When speaking last evening about chec … continue reading

Poking At A Nest Of Angry Hornets
Another pleasant day arrived with our temps above freezing, but unfortunately when you have a thin layer of ice that's starting to melt, creates one heck of a slippery surface. More than once these past several days, I just about lost my balance while walking over that nasty stuff.When I arrived at office, I busied myself with getting some addi … continue reading

Pipe Dream Neapolitan Style Wood Fired Pizza
We sure had a delightful turn-about with our weather today with it quickly warming up beyond freezing. Of course most of it's due to the wind having changed and now coming from a southerly direction, and since I had to play over at St. Paul Lutheran Church this morning, I dispensed with my worries of it being chilly up in their gallery.After ar … continue reading

All Those Layers Of Bergo Green Paint

All Those Layers Of Bergo Green Paint
Oh my goodness! The wind today was enough to take just about anyone's breath away, but fortunately, I didn't have to be out in it other than having to check on a property, make a bank run, along with doing a little Thanksgiving shopping. Without a doubt, today felt like a normal January when we'd have an Alberta Clipper moving thru. I did mention t … continue reading

A Very Dark Energizing Force

A Very Dark Energizing Force
Today's weather went from a tolerable twenty degrees with little or no breeze, to a brisk wind which sent a chill thru me every time I was outdoors. Thank goodness I didn't have to be out in it as much as yesterday, and for sure I was glad at the end of the day, to be finally home and out of it.When I first arrived at office, I busied myself wi … continue reading

232 – 25th St. SW, Mason City, IA
It wasn't so bad outdoors early this morning, but when that wind from the north started blowing, it was stinging cold. Oh how much I despise the month of November which seems to hang on longer than the others. Of course the second in line of my all-time hated months is January. I'm sure most of it comes from my having to be out working in it when I … continue reading

Usually The One Getting Put to Bed

Usually The One Getting Put to Bed
When looking outside early this morning, it appeared we received more snow in the night, which prompted me to be even more careful driving to work this morning. Thank goodness the highways were salted and sanded which made for a less stressful journey. I'm actually beginning to acclimate myself to the cold, so hopefully it'll stay with me thru the … continue reading
