More Snow

Sunday, we got quite a bit of snow. Tuesday, more snow is on the way. Possible 3-5 inches is on tap. Hopefully, I’ll get a walk or two in, as I do like walking in it, as long as it is not windy and blowing in my face. That makes it a miserable time… well I shall see what tomorrow brings.

That Was Real

Took a walk in earlier in the day. It was quite a slog navigating the snow covered sidewalks, hoping I wouldn’t come across any unexpected ice. Lady luck was with me, as I didn’t have any problems. The walking did wear me out a bit, as when I got back home, I was dragging my ass.

For the rest of the day, will kick back and relax, resume the walking come Monday.

Spring Time Snow

Took a walk in the heavy, wet snow. Of course I got kind of wet, I mean really wet, and I seen two other people outside, doing the same thing. It was enjoyable walk, and it helps keep the sugar in check, and also helps with keeping the mind focused.

In these dire times, I reccomend a good walk and enjoy every minute of it.

Short Story

She knew the weather is bad, but she was determined to venture out to the bodega, to get milk, as she had none left. Bundled up, she encountered white out conditions, and soon enough, she got disoriented, and didn’t know where she was.

The next morning her son woke up, and his mother was not home. He called his aunt to see if she was there, and she said no.

An hour later, there was a knock on the door. It was the police notifying him, that a man out walking his dog. found her face down on a snowbank, and apparently froze to death.

Winter Quote ~ Ogden Nash

Winter is the king of showmen,
Turning tree stumps into snowmen
And houses into birthday cakes
And spreading sugar over lakes.
Smooth and clean and frosty white,
The world looks good enough to bite.
That’s the season to be young,
Catching snowflakes on your tongue.
Snow is snowy when it’s snowing,
I’m sorry it’s slushy when it’s going.
~Ogden Nash

Snow No Snow

Last year nearing
the end of
February, we had
100 plus inches
of snow.
In some places
there were snow
piles higher
than a two story
building.

At this very
moment, there
is no snow
to be found.

An El Nino
weather pattern
will do that
in the northeastern
part of the US.

Maybe next
winter payback
could be a bitch.

Dirty Snow

March 19 2015

March 20 is to be the first day of Spring, but here in the Boston area, and doesn’t have the feel of a new season set to begin, as it has and still is windy as all hell, with wind chill factors at times in the teens. Also, there is snow to arrive on Friday, and in some places it could be a plowable one.

It Doesn’t Make Any Sense

For the past couple of nights, I have seen ads of all things: lawn care. It seems odd to show green grass, flowers, etc., when there is so much damn snow on the ground, and it looks like it will be here for quite awhile.

By the way, we’re expecting another inch to three inches tonight, and then change over to freezing rain and then just rain, early Wednesday morning.

Well Agnes, we’ll just have to grin and bare it until Its finally gone.

I Read On …..

I read on
boston.com
the snow
that is still
on the ground
with the exception
of the real
tall mounds of
it, should be
melted and gone
between March 25
and April 3.

Then dear
Agnes, it
will all be
just a memory.

Just A Thought

With all
the snow
in the
past three
weeks, which
was a
good amount,
there is
one way
and the
best way
of looking
at it,
Laugh!

No sense
in getting
all bent
out of
shape, as
it won’t
do you
any good.

Besides, its
Winter!
Enjoy it,
maybe next
Winter will
be one
of those
small amounts
of snow.

January

January can be:
cold, frigid,
blustery, snowy.

January can be:
sunny, windy,
blustery, calm.

January can be:
time to bundle up,
dress in layers.

January can be:
a cruel month,
with short days
and longer nights.

January can be:
some of the above,
or all of the above.

Tire Track

While I was standing outside, during the middle of the afternoon, I took my phone out and was going to a photo of the snow covering the yews. When I looked to see how that pic came out, I saw this photo of the tire track and the curb to the left of it. The photo was taken by accident, so decided to post it.

Mother Nature

It seems that mother nature has a problem.
The problem is, she must have a very itchy scalp.
With all the dandruff falling from the sky above,
it looks like she needs a good shampooing, with
a good rinsing.
Then a apply some conditioning, then rinse
and repeat.
Now, all this dandruff is landing on planet
earth, and are the ones who have to deal with it.

When the weather warms up, then a real good
rinsing will commence, and then it will wash away
all the built up dandruff, that she wanted to
share with us.

Snow

Its been snowing here for the good part of the morning, and you can see the building’s maintenance man, snow blowing the sidewalk. He will be at this throughout the day, as the storm will not be over till sometime later this afternoon.

Winter Solstice

Today, December 21,  begins the first official day of winter. It is also the shortest day of the year, day light wise. As the days start getting longer again, we will have one extra second of day light beginning Wednesday, and as the days go by, gradually the sun will be rising earlier, and setting later, right up to June 21, then back to the days of getting shorter again.

With this being the first day of the winter solstice, depending where you are, cold, sometimes frigid weather, snow, sleet and if we’re lucky warmer temperatures and just plain old rain. I prefer the liquid over the white stuff, and surely not a big fan of black ice, since I’d practically wrecked my shoulder, from slipping on it, many years ago. The cold I can deal with, as I have always loved the cold weather, versus the hot, humid air that comes in during the summer. In any case, 90 days from now, spring will be here.
