The overnight and morning snow was a bit of a surprise, but at least we didn't get any more than we did, and thankfully I managed to get everything shoveled before the wind changed directions, and our temps started dropping. This climate change that's due to global warming, sure has mixed up our weather patterns to where we have more extreme cold d … continue reading

Unfortunately our weather went from near-tolerable to downright nasty by the time sunset arrived. Those light snow flurries were creating slick areas on the sidewalks and streets, and ever-glad I made it home without a mishap. I did see where it's going to be much colder tonight, so be prepared for an biting-cold day tomorrow.Upon arrival at of … continue reading

In spite of the temperature drop, it was good to see the sun shining this morning, which was certainly a lift for ones spirits considering how many gray days we've been enduring. Yes, the hoar frost is beautiful on both gray and sunny days, but I'd rather have the sunshine, which is why I took the above photo this morning of a Gothic.Upon arriv … continue reading

As each one of these cold and dreary winter days pass, I long all the more for Spring to arrive where I can be outdoors again without having to be bundled up like an Eskimo, along with being able to get back to my outdoor projects and gardening. I've already received at least four seed and plant catalogs in the mail which I page thru from time to t … continue reading

Things You May Not Want to Know
Another chilly and gray day came and went, but at least it wasn't bitterly cold like we've seen in the Januarys of years past. For a better portion of the morning, there was a very light mist that was coming down, which had me worried it was going to get heavier and create a dangerous layer of sleet, but thankfully it stopped.My client arrived … continue reading

It Sickens Me At Times

It Sickens Me At Times
Today was just a spill-over from yesterday with additional clean-up after our snowplows left piles at driveways and curbside entrances. I was hoping to see some sunshine, but that never happened, but on a positive note, we're now on the down-hill slide out of yet another of my most disliked months of the year.I spent an additional two or more h … continue reading

In A State Of Devolution

In A State Of Devolution
Well, it was a nothing less than remarkable day with having awakened and found at least four or five inches of snow on the ground, and it was still coming down. Unfortunately, the City plows hadn't cleared my street before I left for work, so I had to hold my breath while driving until I got to a more main artery which'd been plowed.The first t … continue reading

For strangest of reasons, I was almost certain there'd be snow on the ground this morning, but instead, there was a light mist which had me wondering if it would later turn into sleet, but thankfully it didn't. Just about everyone I spoke with today, had something to say about the coming snow, and the last I heard, we're likely going to be getting … continue reading

Taken Away By Putin’s Follies

Taken Away By Putin’s Follies
Another damp and gray day arrived, and since it was below freezing this morning, I could see what rain water that didn't either dried-up or run off, had turned into very slippery surfaces, but what has me concerned all the more, is how dangerous that ice will be with the expected five or more inches of snow atop it after tomorrow's storm. All I can … continue reading

There’d Be Additional Limp-Tailed Excuses

There’d Be Additional Limp-Tailed Excuses
I'm not sure when it actually started raining in the night, but as I was driving to work, I could see we'd already received enough to create curb-side waterways flowing to the storm sewers. Once it started getting light outside, I noticed the rainfall growing heavier, which made me wonder how much snow we would've been getting if it were below free … continue reading
