Which isn't surprising as it it still Winter here in the Northeast US. We did have some deceptively warm days and some chilly ones with sun and clear blue skies that were just teasing us, but we are back to gloomy and cloudy with fresh snow. It was just a couple inches, and it's pretty … Continue reading Monday Musings: Hey, It Snowed Last Night
We had snow last week. I suppose I shouldn't be surprised. I live in New England, and it is November. Snow happens. It isn't like it was a full on Nor'easter blizzard. It was maybe six inches, and although it was wet, heavy stuff, the air temperatures stayed high enough that we didn't get any … Continue reading Monday Musings: I Guess It’s Really Winter
Not only because it snowed again this morning, and there are still some slow flakes falling.

It is also a strange … Continue reading Monday Musings: It’s a Strange Day

Like most of the area, we had a doozy of a winter storm here yesteday. Snowed pretty much all day, with lots of wind and drifting.

We, along with many other parts of the US, got snow this weekend. We were planning on going to get our Christmas tree on Saturday, but with that being the day of most snowfall, we put it off until the beginning of the week. We got maybe six inches or so. And I see we … Continue reading Tuesday Thoughts: Winter has Arrived
What do March snows bring? I 'm not sure, but it better be good. Anyway, have a video of the feeding frenzy at the birdfeeders today. Mostly bluebirds and goldfinches, with a purple finch or two. Meanwhile, the snow keeps falling. The gusty wind predicted hasn't started yet. If you don't need to go … Continue reading If April showers bring May flowers,
I have heard a lot of people remarking on the lack of snow so far this winter. Glad that we have really not had a lot, and that it has been a fairly easy winter so far. I blame you. Every single one of you. Because Old Man Winter? He heard you, loud and clear. … Continue reading Monday Musings: Winter is Back. Oh, Boy, Is It Ever! and Writing Updates

We got hammered with snow at the end of the week, as did many. The overnight stuff was heavy and wet, and then turned somewhat drier as Friday went on. And, of course, we had some business that HAD to be taken care of on Friday. So, out we went into the teeth of it. … Continue reading Monday Musings: Uh, Mother Nature? WTF?
