Yes, I was born and raised in the city, Ernie. My parents also were. My grandfather had land up in Ulster, so we'd go there in the summer. Though that is much more built up than when I was a child. The roads near his place were unpaved and unnamed. Rural Drive number for the post man. Now there are many more houses and less farms.
Good morning Paul. 16 here around midnight. Probably to cold for the dogs later this morn.
I grew up on a farm surrounded by farms. Think only one of them is still running. I feel at
home just about anywhere if I see a farm. Especially if there's Holstein cows, black and white.
Our road was named Crooked Creek but now changed to Charleston. We had a dairy farm
until they required bulk tanks to store milk. Guess investing in one was to much for our little
farm. After that my dad bought calves and raised them until they were ready to become milk
cows, then sell them. We still had to grow hey, oats, and corn. Still baled up hey in the Summer
and we had a hugh vegetable garden that took lots of work. Thawing out drinking cups for the
cows. We always had one milk cow for our families milk. I remember churning butter when I
was young. Our road was paved but was a 40 mph speed limit, now 50. Much more traffic.
Got my bike into the basement yesterday before the storm arrives. Got the new cover on the
Monte Carlo SS. Set two mouse traps in it.
I see the soccer reporter died of a burst Aortic Aneurysm. I came very close to the same end
6 years ago. Caught it just in time, was 5.1 cm last time measured. Had expanded a lot in 6
Walked the dogs around the lawn and field twice yesterday.
Have a good day all.
Farm in the 80s.
Was Dad's barn 2020, I think.
Love the farm Ernie....love the rural ....we live on a dirt road next to a horse farm......
Batten down the hatches…. It’s all coming your way!
Good morning Kitty and Susan. Warm 33 here this morn. Still snowing, not sure how
much we have. The graph on here says 6" so far and 2" more soon. My wife's family
is surrounded by the SUNY horse farm at Morrisville, They're beautiful. Not on a dirt
road though. I take it easy through there driving. Girls leading horses to their pastures
cross the road. There might be some guys there but think it's 99% girls.
We got more ready for the storm yesterday morning. Stuff I should've already done. We
had a bicycle locked on the front deck for show with an old sled. Sled is still there. Using
bike lock I got when I was a kid. Probably from the Western Auto. Got the new cover on the
Monte SS, old cover is on the backhoe. Covered the windshields on our vehicles with covers
our daughter got us. I texted daughter and reminded her where I saw her windshield cover.
Got the branch extenders off the loader in case I need it for snow removal.
Talked to my brother at the end of yesterday on the radio. The guy that takes him to the eye
doctor for shots every month is still planning on making the trip today. The hospital is closer
to us than them. Takes me 7 hours of driving to go get him and take him to the hospital from
there, plus the 2 hours for the appointment. Lucky a local guy to drive him. I only did it once.
Have a great day all. Looks like Paul got all rain down in the city. That's the rain front that's
holding the snow storm over us.
if it snowed overnight rain washed it away.....33 here this morning....hope everyone has a peaceful day
Yes, heavy rain today. Clears up tonight.
Enjoy the day all
we got a lot of rain till noonish and then it stopped....might get a little snow tonight.....
Good morning all. 32 here this morn. Snow has stopped, was still snowing on and off when
I went to bed. I used the loader bucket to clear the driveway. Probably could have used a
shovel but was wet heavy snow. Clung to the branches, wires, and such but not as bad as
the end of last Winter when it broke branches everywhere. Very wintery here, guess you
have warm ocean air there also Kitty. We have the opposite, when we don't have a snow
front moving in like this one, we get winds blowing across the lakes that brings us lake effect
I worked on my boom box yesterday but didn't get it fixed yet. Think it's a fractured solder
joint on the main circuit board but I can't get to the underside of the board easily.
Think there's a sale that will get me out to the stores on Saturday to get two gifts. Don't like
it now that we're retired but things are geared for the working people. Wife got the last ordered
gifts done yesterday, they should make it. Many people we don't see until after Christmas anyway.
My brother was in Sayre, PA yesterday for the shots in his eyes. Hope I never have that. Sometimes
I feel like I'm trying to hold back a tidal wave keeping diabetes in remission. Someday I won't be able
to exercise 3 hours every day. Then to the meds and maybe after that on to insulin. My brothers feet
are swelled discolored and he can't feel them. Just barely keeping his eyesight. Has fallen and hurt his
ribs several times so that they hurt all the time. But doing very well for the time being so hope for the
Enjoy the day all.
Hi Ernie and Kitty and Paul,
Just a few snowflakes here and there....nothing really. Sounds like you did a lot, Ernie to prepare for the storm.
I gave Finn a stuffed toy and he likes to tear them apart...take out the stuffing. Lo and behold, he vomited up a few pieces of it.....even though I sat and watched him destuff it. Now, diarrhea and some vomiting. We had plans to go out for dinner, but will stay here to keep an eye on him. I fixed him some hamburger and rice for later if he feels like eating. My bad. No more stuffed animals for him!
Cold here, may watch the Browns vs. the Ravens. Not much hope for the Browns.
Merry Christmas..... Eight days away I am so done, done and done. Susan
