Christmas is almost here - again,

I've neglected this blog for quite some time but it seems to stick around and be there when I look for it.
My life hasn't changed much since the last post. I'm a bit older but we are still around, still loving the two places I live in, and still able to pay the bills. I guess by any reasonable standard things are pretty good. Christmas makes one be a bit introspective, maybe a better word is thankful. Yep, that's the word and I hope it's in everyone's mind this time of the year.

Snow Keeps Coming Around Here Lately!

Wow. Winter in these parts just won't quit. It's 10 degrees this morning and icy remnants of the two back to back snow and ice events still sit on the ground, waiting to catch unsuspecting people who don't look before they leap.

Me? I am going to head someplace warmer - probably not by more than 20 or 30 degrees but maybe there won't be any ice around, or snow to shovel. I got a pretty good workout this past week, at least until my gracious neighbor introduced me to his new snow blower. What a difference that thing made and, when the second snow storm hit, it got even better because I paid his son to do the blowing.

I bought a truck in November - a 4 wheel drive job. Good thing too since, even though our other vehicles are either 4 WD or all wheel drive, the truck is there, already dirty, and proven itself to be able to handle this weather. I guess I'll have to take it south in order to wash it though since the roads around here, would just get it dirty again. Besides, the outside water spigots and hoses are probably frozen for the season. Florida sounds like a great idea - too bad it's so full of old people. I hate to add to that list.

Winter Weather? What Winter Weather?

It's January 5th, 2015 and was 62 degrees today at 6 PM. This is crazy, not that I am complaining about the temperature, but the rain can quit anytime now please. Just returned from SC and it was pretty much the same weather there.

Here's hoping we don't get any big changes and the winter is a mild one. Snow is something I can live without.
