Around 5:30 this morning it 58 degrees and windy. About three hours later, the wind shifted direction, lo and behold the air suddenly got chilly, and had to close the window. Later on I went for a walk and the wind was really doing its thing, and walking into the teeth of it, that feltContinue reading “A Quick Reversal”
Lots and lots of snow How much snow have no idea Lots and lots of wind All I know it was windy really windy Anyway Its winter Its January It comes with the territory
Waiting for the big storm to hit. Suppose to start around midnight or there abouts. Expecting anywhere from a foot and half to 2 feet. Calling it a blizzard with white out conditions and a lot of wind to boot. Oh well … its winter and I can live with it … so there’s noContinue reading “Waiting”

With daylight savings time done for the next four months… it won’t stop me from taking my early evening walks…I’ll admit that I enjoy it….even when there is snow and whatnot on the ground…plod on…plod on….
day good for puttering around apartment good for kicking back relax good for taking a siesta good for doing anything a person chooses to do
the smoke from the west coast wildfires is really bad here in my part of the state…wore a mask while I took a walk… you can actually smell it too… shortly after 7:00..the sun was a ball of red as it was behind the smoke…its supposed to be a little better tomorrow…as I’ve had enoughContinue reading “Monday Evening 8:54 p.m.”
the air stinks from the wildfires out west…cut my walk short…can see the smoke on the horizon
more rain later. bring it on.
morning coffee will make the lousy weather a bit more tolerable
dark. dreary. rainy. lightning. thundering start to the morning
friday will be hot and humid have things to do so i’ll pace myself also have plenty of bottled water
took a walk this evening the air…sticky as all hell felt like i was in a sauna so my pace was a bit slower than normal …it sucks is all i can say
the times are changing along with the climate nothing stays the same
this sticky humid weather is in no way my friend far from it
humid as hell shirt plastered on skin not a good feeling
dark. gloomy. overcast. blah, Saturday morning.
the dark clouds are moving in and can hear low rumblings of thunder
so I managed to take a walk, and I didn’t let the sun or the heat get to me. I managed to block it out, and it does help. now come Friday & Saturday, both days will only be in the 60s, with on and off rain. I can deal with that.
another day of 90 plus degrees in store for today ugh!
cut my evening walk its nasty hot and humid which is not to my liking
went for an earlier walk shortly after nine not much shade damn…I could feel the sun…and it felt like being in a 400 degrees oven so I managed to cut the distance as it was too hot
as the hot, humid weather is here it still hasn’t stopped me from venturing outside and do my walks I try to stay on the streets with the most shade and also try to block my mind from how bad it is…most of the time it works it does keep me in shape even thoughContinue reading “so”
89 degrees with a feel of 98 humid as all hell too glad I got things done early rest of the day will be a kick back and relax

hot humid weather making a return not exactly my kind of weather high humidity tends to wear me down
weather is fantastic for a stroll and enjoying it
evening walk on hold thunderstorms moving through will wait it out and take one later on
beautiful morning rain later in the day oh well….just make the best of it
sun is shining 64 degrees time to go for a walk about town
the sun did not disappoint shining brightly with lots of puffy white clouds with that said took a walk on the boardwalk which runs parallel with the river and its never crowded which is a good thing
saturday morning rain is done clouds are slowly departing looks like a beautiful day in the neighborhood is in the cards
think i’ll sit and wait out the heat and sticky feeling outside and enjoy the comforts of the a/c and slake my thirst with water with a cup or two of caffeine so…. that’s what i’ll do
damn! it is way to humid
took a walk in the heat very few people out and about came home dragging my ass the a/c felt great now i’m relaxing knowing my glucose reading is excellent tomorrow will be hotter do i dare to venture out… i’ll play it by ear
its way too damn hot outside
it is a saturday it is june it is hot to hot for this time of the month some say climate change is a hoax i beg to differ but no use arguing with people in denial then i ask myself do people in denial like being that way or do they live miserable lives
its sunday afternoon… sitting on the couch, tv is on… laptop across my thighs… going through emails… blog posts… doing digital crosswords… its a good day for it… as the rain is streaking at slanting angle… brewed some french roast coffee… so it will help me to function properly without getting sleepy eyed…

big improvement in the weather here, so i took a long walk. the air was warm, compare to the las two days, with overcast skies and with the wind coming off the ocean, brings the temperature down, but it didn’t stop me from pounding the bricks. today’s walk was beneficial, as i cleansed my head,Continue reading “Tuesday Evening”
the weather at times can be finicky
a gloomy, chilly, overcast, sunday morning.
another balmy day. all is good.
another windy day in the neighborhood.
naked trees gently swaying underneath the overcast sky.
the winds of March are doing their thing, again.
drab. dark. gloomy. shitty. crappy day.
Another night of cold, gusty winds.
Strong winds. Power outages. Nature’s doing.
The strong gusts of wind woke Joann from a sound sleep. She peered at the clock, and it was exactly 3:00 a.m. She got out of bed, and the hardwood floor felt cold. She checked the thermostat, and it was 63 degrees. She turned on the heat, went the bathroom to do her business, andContinue reading “3:00 A.M. ~ Short Fiction”
A late winter storm, dumping copious amounts of snow on the streets and avenues, in the downtown area. Its 3:00 a.m., not a soul to be seen venturing in the deepening snow. Even the plows are having a hard time keeping the roads cleared. The only places that are still open, are a 24 hourContinue reading “3:00 A.M. Downtown – Short Fiction”
Every morning, at 3:00 a.m., you will find an elderly gentleman, sitting in his favorite booth, having a cup of coffee. He has been patronizing this certain coffee shop, since he retired many years ago from the book editing job, that he had for over 35 years. He usually is the only one there, andContinue reading “3:00 A.M. – A Short Story”
TV weatherman says more snow on the horizon. Its winter, so it comes with the territory.
February, the shortest month of the year, is already at the mid way point. Before you know it, the month of March will be here, and February will just be a memory.
“In the bleak midwinter Frosty wind made moan, Earth stood hard as iron, Water like a stone; Snow had fallen, Snow on snow, Snow on snow, In the bleak midwinter, Long ago.” ~ Christina Rossetti, Poet 1830-1894
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… wellContinue reading “More Snow”
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 myContinue reading “That Was Real”
Late Sunday morning. Snowflakes descending gracefully.
Snow, wind, ice. A perfect trifecta.
Got more snow than what we were supposed to get.
Cold. Not record cold. Just cold!
Another gusty windy day. Oh my.
Pouring rain. Walking outdoors on standby.
May 9th, it is snowing, windy and 34 F degrees, with a windchill of 29 F. Yikes!
Monday’s weather was strange. Rain, snow, freezing rain, constantly flipping around. It was like Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde type of day.
Miserable, shitty weather, means I will resort to being the ‘hall monitor,’ thing, and do my walking in the halls and stairways. The plus side of it, is not having to wear a coat, and also get to smell the different aromas of the various meals, that are being concocted. Does it make me hungry,Continue reading “Walking Outdoors Is On Hold”

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 notContinue reading “Short Story”
