Thread: It is gonna be a cold winter.

  1. #1441
    Rain in the forecast , probably at record precipitation for 13 consecutive months . I estimate it would take three dry weeks for everything to dry out . Crazy guy who leaves closest to the east of me probably having a lot of wood rot by now. Here in the rainforest untreated wood rots fast .

    Light rain but fairly warm. The extended forecast looks about the same. We've had a lot of rain this year. Maybe the "experts" are wrong about Global Warming, Climate Change, and Global Cooling. Maybe it should be called Global Precipitation.

    High of 79 and sunny. F-ing beautiful day.

    I went for a run, Mr A played golf, and Brian Setzer is working on his tan.

    When the power went out today it was still warm but I drug out the generator and fired it up and plugged my sump pump in and started a fire. By the time I went back in and got a lamp and a laptop plugged in the power came back on .

    Snowing out now . Big snow like last April . Looking at the extended forecast it shows the lowest temp the next 15 days as one night at 23 degrees. Today might be the last wood I split then . Danke might come by and help .

    Rain is our version of snow- currently 50% above normal for this time of year (doesn't officially get below freezing here along the coast but has dipped into the 40's). (normally just below six inches- already above nine). More forecast. We need the moisture. Normal temp is high in the mid 60's but has been sixty or lower (usually only about ten degrees between high and low). Since I don't have built in heat, that can feel cold. (Yeah- not cold compared to a lot of the country, I know! My brother's place was minus seven degrees last week).

    Gray and misty but not very cold.

    Mr A was complaining that he's tired and decided he's going to leave work early today. When he got to work, he called and found out an old friend of his is in town and Mr A has decided he's not too tired to go out with him tonight. Good for him. That man needs to relax. He's wound tight as Dick's hatband. I'm also making reservations for us to take off to the beach in a few months. I need to see the sun.

    Beautiful sunny day but still a little chilly - I think the high was around 60.

    Tomorrow, Mr A is talking about playing golf. I hope like hell he does. I love that man but it's like having a toddler when he's around and I have work to do. He's very needy. I told him he was worse than a toddler once and he lifted his legs up and yelled, Changing Time, lol. See why I can't stay annoyed with him?

    Foot of snow last night.

    Was at the ice races this last weekend.

    Pretty bad wreck...that 56 car T-boned the 1 car while blind in the flying ice and snow.

    Knocked the driver out cold, while at the same time knocked the transmission into reverse and at full throttle, so it was stuck in full throttle reverse loop.

    I was two second away from driving my my old truck out and "corralling" him before one of the infield hands got run over trying to jump in and shut him down.

    The three track plows did just that, corralled him up and shut it down.

    Driver was OK, but went to the hospital after getting cut out, to get checked out...SOP after getting your clock cleaned like that.

    Beautiful sunny day. High of 68.

    Mr A got up early and gave me my VD gift. Honey Buns for his honey bun. He ate them for me and then decided to forgo golf and spend the day with me. I was in the middle of dusting the living room and he decided to spend the day with me by laying on the sofa and going back to sleep. He likes to nap where I'm working.

    I bought him a box of Dove truffles (his favorite). He ate those, too.

    Very nice. Mr A rarely buys me flowers but one year he made me a chicken wing bouquet. He put hot wings (at the top) and celery (for the stem) on bamboo skewers and stood them up in a hurricane glass filled with bleu cheese, lol. Best bouquet I ever got.

    High of 51 and rain today. In the extended forecast it looks like the sun will peek out on Monday afternoon but we won't see it again for a week - says rain and showers every day.

    This has been a very rainy winter. I just hope it clears up before it gets warm outside. I was thinking about how happy I'm going to be when it gets warm and I can go swimming but then I remembered that I have a job 4 days a week and I won't get to lounge in the pool very much. I was thinking about cutting back to two or three days a week in the summer.

    I split some wood today , might be the last time or maybe once more if it turns cold first week of March. Fire is going nicely . This could be the last night below 30 until Mar 1 . Oyarde has once again conquered a wet , cold winter with no global warming .
