    2023-01-18 Conflicting Winter Storm Warning Feels 🥶❄️🥰

    After all these years and incidents of “crying wolf” we are still basing decisions on what the weather people say is about to happen. All the schools are closed for the day and/or have opted to go remote. This business of predicting the weather has always been precarious at best but I suppose as a […]

    2021-03-02 In Like a Lamb?!… 🐑🔜🦁

    March.. I think the saying is supposed to be “In like a lion and out like a lamb.”  *** According to the Farmers’ Almanac, the weather folklore stems from ancestral beliefs in balance, meaning if the weather at the start of the month was bad (like a roaring lion), the month should end with good […]

    2021-02-16 A Good Day to Hide Inside and Under Blankets! ❄️ 🥶 💙

    Different day, same story. Efffffing cold! School is cancelled and there’s rolling blackouts planned in the city to control power consumption. This beast of a house has its hot and cold spots and some pipes on the northwest side are at risk of freezing. Other duties as assigned for me today include keeping the water […]

  • 2018-01-11 First Snow Day of the Year

    My normal routine was interrupted today and mother nature is to blame… or to thank, depending on how you look at it. It’s almost 9AM and I just woke up. I went to sleep just after 11PM last night knowing school was cancelled and the kids would not have to get up. Even with that […]

  • 2017-08-20 Things You Can’t Control

    My anxiety is high today. As the minutes tick by it is getting worse. Why do I feel this way? I really hate that I get so nervous about things I can’t control. Like the weather for example. So here I am in Omaha, really, really close to the path of full totality for the […]

  • 2017-04-22 Waking Up in Phoenix

    I went to bed after 10PM, but it was really after midnight according to my body clock, and I was wiped. Traveling does that. Amazingly I slept until 5:30AM, which is really 7:30. So that’s pretty awesome. I’ll be here for a week for a work project and I’m officially switching to west coast time […]

  • 2017-03-28 Where’s the Bright Side?

    I woke up with a slight headache this morning and it’s officially day 1 of my cycle. I don’t have to go into the office today, thank goodness. At the present moment I’m still in bed with my laptop and seriously considering just working from here until I really need to get up for some […]

  • 2017-03-25 Ironic

    I’m looking out the window this morning and I have Alanis Morissette whispering in my ear “Isn’t it Ironic.. don’t you think?”. We haven’t had any real precipitation for weeks and weeks (and it was an extremely dry winter). Last weekend we put together our new trampoline out in the back yard and it’s pretty much […]
