if there was no such thing called weather, what else could people bitch about
patiently waiting for the snow to descend from the clouds
Morning sun no wind 6 F, -14 C warmer temps are on the way
overcast windy 1F -17C wind chill of -7F typical mid January weather
its one of those dank glum gloomy rainy type of day just make the best of it
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”

The young couple, love dancing in the rain.
No traffic for a mid-Saturday morning.
The snow shall fall from the sky, and whiten the surrounding area.

A dusting of snow, along with a new fence.
A bit warmer than yesterday, and tomorrow a lot warmer.
Shortly after 1:00 pm, a snow squall came through, and lasted about 20 minutes. The colder weather will be moving in, along with the wind chill factor.

Weather people now say that snow storm won’t be as bad as they thought it would. Now they say maybe an inch or two of the white stuff on my part of the commonwealth.
The calendar tells me that Spring begins on March 20 at 12:30 a.m. Weather people tell me a snow storm is going to happen on the very first day of a brand new season. They .said we can expect up to a foot of heavy wet snow. You got to love the El Nino weatherContinue reading “Spring”
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 nextContinue reading “Snow No Snow”
Today is the first full day of Winter. Here, in the Northeast part of the country, it is early in the evening, and it is in the mid-50s, come Thursday near 70. Truly weird weather.

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 aContinue reading “Behind The Times”
The calendar says it is April 8 Well, it’s 36 degrees and it’s snowing. Come Friday the expected high is supposed to be 65. Just more wacky/weird New England weather to deal with.
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 ofContinue reading “Just A Thought”

In the current 30 day period, the Boston area has so far, more than 61.6 inches of snow, which beats the previous record 58.5 inches back in 1978. And the snow is still coming down. More in The Boston Globe.
Snow storms are numerous flakes falling from the clouds.
The streets and parking lots are just about deserted. The snow is supposed to be done with late tonight, or early tomorrow morning. There’s talk about another storm for Thursday.

Here in Eastern Mass., the first snow storm of the season is upon us. How much we get, is probably anyone’s guess. The photo was taken a couple of hours after the change over from rain.

Photo was taken on the 21st, well before the worst of the storm hit late last night. Constant heavy rain and windy as all hell. Gotta love New England weather. This work A Pondering Mind is licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial-ShareAlike 4.0 International License.
After a heavy down pour, the fog can be seen in the distance at 8:19 AM.
Raindrops on the glass, and a reflection too.
The heat and humidity really sucked today. At 4:00 PM, the air was so damn stifling, it like sucked the air right of you. The photo above and below were taken at 6:14 PM. The rain, or what rain fell was a short welcome relief.
At 1:05 PM, it was hazy, cloudy and 87 F with a feel of 93. 30 C with a feel of 34. The breeze in the shade feels good.
Say the outside temperature is 98 F, with stifling humidity. And being outside in such sticky air, and the body is sweaty, and afraid you might have to take to the scissors to extricate one self from the soaked shirt. Anyways, along comes an idiot, all happy as he/she is whistling some stupid tune andContinue reading “What Irks Me No. 2”
Gray sky, rain, and a temp of 48 F, 9 C. Photo taken at 9:17 AM.
The side walk is covered with a layer of snow. This was taken this morning (2/19/14). We got more snow in the afternoon, before it changed to a light mist of rain.
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. TheContinue reading “Tire Track”
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 onContinue reading “Mother Nature”
From an old email friend…
From my email in box:
The first snow storm of 2014 arrived here in the early morning hours. It is supposed to last until late Friday morning. The coast of Massachusetts is supposed to get worst of the storm. As of 7:45 pm, which is the time I am writing this, the temperature is 2 F, -16 C. The windContinue reading “First Snow Storm Of 2014”
Painting, n,: The art of protecting flat surfaces from the weather, and exposing them to the critic. — Ambrose Bierce
Got about an inch or two of snow today, more or less of a nuisance. Warmer weather is to be here for the weekend, and Monday.
On my daily walk this morning, I decided to cut through the local park, as the walking was kind of on the treacherous side. Lots of icy spots. I only took this one photo, and it does have a Zen look to it.
Two photos of rooftops and grounds covered with a coating of snow. Not much of an accumulation, as it went from snow, to sleet, back to snow, then a light mist.
So earlier today, A Pondering Mind was outside getting some air. This was close to noon time. Well, out comes one of my neighbors and this was the gist of the conversation: He: Nice day, huh! Me: What? Off he went on his merry way. This happened with an overcast sky, 40F, and a damp/rawContinue reading “So ……”
Hazy Hot Humid Has the feel and look of July/August. Not the middle of September.
No need to remind anyone of the relentless heat wave, that’s gripping the northeast, and other parts of the country. Basically, I go for my walk early in the morning, before the temps spike back up, and the high humidity that is included. Then its doing crosswords, book reading, posting on my blog (if I’mContinue reading “Passing The Time While Enduring The Heat Wave”
The humid weather is still here, and will be here for the rest of the week. A story in the newspaper this morning, more or less said, no more 90s, but it will be in the 80s for the rest of the week. Humid, sticky weather and I don’t get along, all that well. GetContinue reading “More Humid Weather”
Like the sky opens after a rainy day we must open to ourselves… Learn to love yourself for who you are and open so the world can see you shine. – James Poland
In a post before this one, I titled it: Partly Cloudy Sky. Why am I pointing this out? Because what irks the shit out of me, is when the local and national TV, along with the radio weather forecasters, always, without a doubt, say “skies” when it should be “sky”. When we look up atContinue reading “Sky or Skies”
The weather here in Massachusetts has gone haywire. At 9:00 am, the temp is 42F/6C, with a windchill of 35F/5C. It feels more like March 26, not near the end of the month of May. Crazy weather…
