Good morning Ernie, Paul and Kitty ~
Wishing I didn’t have to go outside for Finn’s morning walk. A balmy 35 degrees with half rain/half snow outside and very dark sky. We had quite a show of lightning, thunder and heavy rain as a front marched across the state. Finn gets very troubled by thunder and he was given lots of pets and comfort.
Nothing new here. We are planning a trip to Pittsburgh this week-end to see a symphony with Jim’s friends. It will be interesting as I am not a fan of sitting for lengths of time…… hoping the weather and the drive will not be problematic.
Carry on……. Susan
Enjoy the symphony and The Burgh, Susan. I worked at Mellon Bank decades ago and went often.
Enjoy the weekend everyone.
Good morning Susan, Paul, and all. 29 here, so not to bad. I'm up early for some reason.
We have two low fronts coming together here Sunday night into Monday, leave it to Winter
to get in our way in January. Then we have another snow storm next Wednesday. One of
Sundays fronts is from the southwest and the other from the south, not sure if either will
go through Ohio. Might be just rain in NYC. Trip to Pittsburgh might be ok if down and back
before Sunday night. We have been turning on one or two kitchen lights during the daytime
lately because of dark days.
Our Cocoa used to run and hide and shake with thunder. Out of their control I guess.
We got my wife's new phone working yesterday. She's had same one for years. Then we went
to Walmart and got some supplies. Shouldn't need to go back there for months. I had to buy an
extra belt to wear different jeans for morning run. I managed to slip and fall on the pavement and
put holes in the knees of my new Levi Strauss Winter jeans. Not cheap, think I will need to patch them
and use them for cold mornings for a long time. I must have hit hard, have fallen in them before with
no damage I could see. Maybe damaged the fabric a little each time. Don't like to be changing belt back
and forth every day so just got a cheap one for mornings. I don't use it to help me hold the leaches. Use
a tool belt without the pouches for that. One leach hooked on the belt and one in my hand. Also, they are
hooked together with a 2.5 foot leach so they can't be split up all over the place.
I always joke with wife that we have the weekend off, no overtime for us. Some how her business got people
to work weekend days on regular pay and had to work another full weekend to make up for a weekend day off,
even using a vacation day. So they worked every other weekend and had to work three weekends in a row to
make up for the day off. Just about shoots the hole month. Glad we're in retirement. They tried to get her back
naturally, have to be having an impossible time getting workers.
I used to go to my granddaughter's violin concerts, only ones I ever went to. Wife went to most of them. Sometimes
she had to work. We were so proud of her in her concerts.
I also, hope all have a great weekend.
Grandsons years ago at our speedie fest, balloon rally.
Cute picture of your grands and the hot air balloons. They would fly over our home during the Hall of Fame events when I lived in North Canton.
Typed a message earlier and it was gone into cyber space.
Gray sky here too. We always seem to have our kitchen lights on due to the dark outside.
Snow coming tomorrow ~
Pray tell, were you a “Steelers” fan when you lived there? Always a rivalry between the Cleveland Browns and the Pittsburgh Steelers ~.
Apparently seeing Mozart & More at Heinz Hall tomorrow afternoon.
Enjoy the week-end. Dark sky and snow tomorrow.
Good morning. 31 here at almost 10 AM. Woke at almost 3 so didn't take the time to write in this
forum. Drank coffee and looked at stuff, then got ready to head down the road. After that and
breakfast went down to get groceries before all the people trying to beat the storm. Wegmans
will be crowded all day and more difficult to get stuff they're having trouble with lately, like lettuce.
We have a little sun this morn but around 2 PM supposed to start snowing and last until tomorrow
morning. 3-4 inches with higher amounts some places.
We just took care of little stuff yesterday. Today I have to look at the heated mats on the deck. Tripping
the GFCI when they're turned on now. Probably some water got into one of the connections. Has a bunch
with the little control unit, large mat, and 4 little step mats.
We might get another snow storm Wednesday but we're all set. Can skip garbage Tuesday if we have to but
don't expect driving being a problem that day.
Wife getting ready for a niece baby shower later this month.
Enjoy the day and snow all.
Good morning from snowy Avon Lake ~
This is the second time I have posted and hit Post and my message doesn’t appear? Operator error, no doubt.
So, we have decided due to the predicted snowfall and spouse having a low blood pressure problem, we will stay here and not make the five hour trek. I am just as happy that we are not doing such a drive during the winter. Worse case scenario would be to be stuck over there and Finn home alone……
We will spend a relaxing day with the electric fireplace on, relaxing, watching a football game and dining on an Atlantic Salmon Roast with goat cheese florentine, a client’s gift to husband.
Enjoy the day. Stay safe everyone. Susan
I did not live in Pittsburgh. I worked in NY for Mellon and traveled there 4-5 times a year. I remember the Browns relocating to Baltimore, so I want the Ravens to forever lose. The Rooney family of Pittsburgh was very close to the Giants Mara family, so maybe that carried over to the fans. I guess fans primarily dislike their division rivals. For us, that is the Cowboys & Eagles. Not so much Washington. A horrid game last night.
A good decision not to travel tonight. Enjoy the evening. It will only be rain here, but lots of it.
Be safe everyone,
Good morning Susan, Paul, and all. Have quite a bit of snow here, 3-4 inches, and a little more to come by 10 AM.
We finished all we have to do so no car tracks over the fresh snow before snow removal. Still snowing now. I woke
early again. I dose some during the day if I'm drowsy in these retirement years. As long as I'm not driving. Don't
have to tell you it could get even worse than Finn being stuck without you for a day. It doesn't say you are posting on
your phone Susan, don't know how you're losing post after post. Usually if it's me, it's because I mistakenly left the page
without hitting post.
I found the reason for our heated deck mats not working and fixed it. A wire cap heated up and melted in a box outdoors.
So will have to plug the mats directly into an outlet for now instead of having control through the switch on the wall. I'm
usually the one to run it anyway, will think about a better way to run the mats. At least the problem is solved.
Need to have a look at how to wire up my newest ham radio to the transistorized amplifier. Right now it uses an older tube amp.
I should at least see if I need to order connectors to do a good and neat job of it.
Salmon is the best meat for Diabetics. I have it once in a while.
Enjoy the day all. I will probably do snow removal for the most part. Our driveway is about 150 feet long and two car widths for
half of it.
Brandy on top of the mountain in the snow.
