A Run on Sugar

A Run on Sugar
It was quite the hectic day again to where I was starting to feel like a yo-yo with the all the comings and goings, but fortunately managed to get everything I needed done in a timely manner.Around mid-morning, I went out to 818 N. Pennsylvania and took all new exterior and interior photos. I'm hoping they'll be all the more presentative of tha … continue reading

Several times in the night, I was awakened by the rain, and sure enough, we must've received more than just a little because of the puddles I was driving thru in the streets as I was heading to work. When looking at the weather yesterday, I could've sworn we had only a slim chance of getting any precipitation in the night, but before darkness arriv … continue reading

It was so much of a pleasant morning, I made sure to get my quiet Sunday solitary religious time completed earlier, just so I could head out all the sooner and get started on some yard and garden work. Thank goodness there was a northerly breeze which helped to keep the flies and mosquitos from bothering too much.I was so much enjoying my free … continue reading

Their Dirtied Flyswatters
Another busy day arrived, and glad to find the sun shining again, with the exception of a few fluffy clouds randomly floating across our skies. My first order of the day, was to take a quick trip to the landfill, and not surprised to find a line had already formed fifteen minutes before they opened. It's a good thing I got there when I did, because … continue reading

Pandemic Proportions

Pandemic Proportions
If that cold north wind wasn't blowing, I think our temps would've climbed a little higher than the upper 60's, because I got the full blast of it this morning while standing out at an acreage waiting for the buyers to arrive, and with there being nothing much to slow or block it, I was quickly getting chilled to a point where I had to let myself i … continue reading

Not in Favor of Soaking

Not in Favor of Soaking
After waking this morning and finding it had rained again in the night, the weather channel sure got it wrong when saying we had only a 30% chance of rain yesterday. There must have been some strong wind gusts with it, because I noticed several big trees down this morning. Most don't realize that when our soil gets overly-saturated, tree roots aren … continue reading

Sipping Cheap Whiskey
It was certainly quite the storm we had last night which dumped bucket-loads of rain on us in a very short period of time to where our streets were getting flooded. One of the people who stopped by my office today who lives in a home in an out-lying area, said that once she was able to see the field behind her home after the rain let up, appeared a … continue reading

We weren't supposed to be getting any rain this morning, but it still had to be overcast with sprinklings. This thunder storm that's been raging, is dumping a large amount of rain in such a short time, to where I'm afraid we'll be getting some flash-flooding. For sure the streets and intersections Downtown are filling up fast.I'm certainly glad … continue reading

After the clouds cleared off, it ended up being a delightful day, and all the while I was busy with my morning chores and appointments, while remaining hopeful the sun would dry the grass enough to where it could be mowed, because if I'd not be able to get it done today, there would be all the taller grass growing until I could find time this week. … continue reading

Little Plastic Greenhouse

Little Plastic Greenhouse
Those cloud formations early this morning looked a little on the unsettling side, because every time I see a separating band which is followed by exceptionally dark clouds, I become nervous. Some years ago, a meteorologist mentioned that they can be the most dangerous at times, because if those opposing systems are right, they'll turn from being ho … continue reading
