If you recall, I had a two month hiatus from running. With a March 15th half scheduled in Asheville, I have been silently cursing both last year’s injury and the current weather. Last week I ran five miles. Good news is that was five miles outside. More good news, it was at a fairly reasonable… Continue reading Training Update
I have to say that the winters now are not as harsh as I recall from my childhood growing up in upstate NY. We do not get as much snow nor as much cold – as I am looking for my gloves to put on as it is so cold that typing is making my… Continue reading Snow & Winter in Upstate New York
I have blogged before about the Photo Club I go to in Groton, New York. The beginning of January brought the monthly meeting and a homework assignment – take pictures of snow. Remarkably, it snowed that night. I need to pick my favorite five so am going to let you all help me. Vote by… Continue reading Photos of Snow
So we had a bit of snow in October. I freaked out a bit on that as I was heading to Fishkill the morning that it fell. I am not a big drive in the snow fan.

Yes, it is December 31st. Another year is about to pass into history. This year was an historic one for many reasons but that is for another entry. Here are some pics of today’s weather out my back and front doors about 30 minutes ago.

So, when I had to crawl outside this morning to get child #5 to physical therapy by 7 am, it was 1F. Thankfully, the car was parked in such a manner that I didn’t get… Continue reading Baby, It’s Cold Outside …
Spring is coming. At least, that is what the calendar is telling me. The vernal equinox is on the calendar as being this Wednesday, March 21. The big question is will it actually come to the northeast. My daughter was home on spring break last week. She was taking pictures on Sunday – the second… Continue reading Spring is coming
Well, I thought I had an image but can’t find one. I love snow. It is amazing I have managed to live through this winter so far. It was in the 50s at the beginning of January. We have had negligible snowfall since October. It has just been weird. Cold, we have had. Snow, we… Continue reading Let it Snow, Let it Snow, LET IT SNOW!!!
I always knew that at least one of my six children would finally hit that stage where they were immortal and I knew nothing. Well, it has taken a long time as most of my kids still believe I know everything – a hard job and a well-placed network of “spies” will accomplish that. We… Continue reading Immortality and the Always Wrong Parent
