Behind The Times

It was a great time
to be outdoors to
enjoy the nice weather.
So, I was looking at my
phone, and thought it
would be a good time
to go to my blog.

Along comes Ollie aka
‘The Village Idiot.’

He stops and asks me
what am I doing? I tell
him, I’m typing a post.
He said, that’s not a
typewriter. I know that.
You know Ollie, this is
not 1985, its 2015.
People can now use their
phones to type a post,
send a message, just about
do anything they like. Plus
they can talk and listen to.

Well, needless to say, Ollie
aka ‘The Village Idiot’ was
totally in awe, and didn’t
know what to say, so off
he went on his merry way.
It saved me the time to have
to explain how the times
have changed.

With another foot of snow expected to be dumped on Eastern Massachusetts, between now and late Sunday, you can imagine how much taller the snow banks will be.

More Snow On The Way

February 2 is Groundhog Day
How many groundhogs will
see their shadows?

As far as living in
Massachusetts, more
snow is predicted
for Monday.

Talk is, 6-10″,
6-12″, 10-12″,
12″ plus.

Snow is good for
skiers and snow
boarders, but
not so much for
drivers, shovelers,
pedestrians, etc.

I say just grin
and bare it, as
in another month
or two, it will
be just a memory.

Typical Winter

A couple of days ago
two feet of snow got
dumped upon us.

Today, snowing
lightly, lazily.

Now, the streets
are starting to
get covered again,
the wind is kicking
in, the snow a bit
heavier, the temps
are slowly dropping.
The air is getting
colder.

Just a typical
winter day.
