Temporary Clotheslines

Temporary Clotheslines
Another beauty of a day came and went, and if this warming trend continues, we shouldn't be having any flooding early this Spring from a rapid melt-off, which'll be good for everyone. Yes, we'll more than likely be dumped on a few more times before it's all over, but at least we're getting gradual melts. I'm still reeling from those many days of su … continue reading

The Dark Hole

The Dark Hole
While out driving this afternoon, I was delighted to find it 43 degrees, which certainly helped to melt the snow off our streets and sidewalks. Of course I had to run my car thru a carwash again today due to all that splattering from those many pickup trucks with no mud-flaps we have running around our town. It's too bad our Country doesn't have mu … continue reading

Wasn't it absolutely delightful when seeing our temps nearing forty degrees today? Of course the first thing I had to do this morning, was to get all my shoveling done before it started turning into snow-cone snow from our warming sun. It went much faster than I expected, and glad for it because I had enough other things to do besides scooping snow … continue reading

As was predicted, we have snow, but much more than I was expecting, so it looks like I'm going to be a busy little bee with my shoveling projects tomorrow. In spite of the predicted above-freezing temps tomorrow, I've learned these recent years, not to believe all weather reports.After getting my contemplative prayer session completed, it was t … continue reading

Lingering Brain Fog

Lingering Brain Fog
It was a bit of a nippy five below zero this morning, and didn't seem to want to warm up until after noontime arrived, and in spite of not having all that much to do this morning, the time seemed to fly by to where I was having to cut a phone conversation short for fear I'd be late getting to my public open house.I did have to run down to 1707 … continue reading

It looks like Mother Nature is going to keep these warming days coming thru the end of this month, and yes, we may be getting more snow, but at least there won't be many inches all at once. A meteorologists mentioned the last toe-hold our wobbling jet stream has on our Nation, is in northeast Iowa, as well as parts of Wisconsin and Minnesota, until … continue reading

If you only knew how much this warming weather has been a blessing for those who've been hunkering down these past weeks. Nearly everyone I spoke with today mentioned how much they've learned to hate winter all over again, and mostly due to our not having an extended period of such extremes in a number of years. I'm still in disbelief those million … continue reading

We're finally moving out of the frigid zone and into what a real February is supposed to be like. I could already tell how this warming trend has positively affected the mindsets of our general public as they were exhibiting better attitudes compared to these past two weeks. One of my clients who sadly mentioned her waterline having frozen several … continue reading

Toxic Individualism

Toxic Individualism
After last night, let's hope we'll not awaken and find any more double digit-below zero temperatures the remainder of this winter. In spite of our hardships, we should all be eternally thankful we're not living in Texas where there've been thousands of people without power for over 24 hours. It's just one more example of how our society has become … continue reading

Now if the weather forecasters don't change their minds once again, after tonight, we shouldn't have to be enduring anymore bitterly cold overnight lows because it's supposed to gradually start warming up once more. In spite of our sun shining brightly today, it was still darned cold outdoors to the point of me leaving my car running while showing … continue reading

Bubbling Up

Bubbling Up
First thing this morning, I checked on our outdoor temp, and immediately shivered when seeing it 17 below zero. It now appears we're going to have three more nights of this craziness. I'm sure all these recent transplants to our area from warmer climes, are now wondering if they'd made a huge mistake when moving to this frigid zone. As I mentioned … continue reading

Valentine’s Day!
It appears we're going to be enduring these nighttime well-below zero temps for the next four days. It sound like we'll be seeing the worst of it tonight and tomorrow night. Of course with the unexpected snow, I had quite a lot of shoveling to do, and since I took my time at it, I didn't get it finished until around noontime. In spite of there not … continue reading
