Help, I’m trapped in the house with The Curmudgeon!

According to the reporters around here…we dodged a bullet with this storm. Yeah, 14 inches of snow is dodging a bullet because all around us they got almost double that.

Yes, I said double that.

My pups are aghast at the 14 inches we got I can imagine their horror at more than that.

My front walk, driveway aren’t shoveled. I am not allowed to do that and our snow clearing gal has a large customer base so we will get done sooner or later.

My back steps and a small spot are cleared for the dogs. I managed to throw my back out doing that too.

The dogs aren’t thrilled with their tiny space to go but that’s too bad.

Our street is not plowed and a mess. I don’t know how the heck I am going to get G to her appointment on Friday.

I hate this weather.




Well, it’s here…

We are in the middle of a blizzard.

I hate snow.

I want a nice warm beach. No snow.

Lucy hates snow.

She wants a nice warm beach too.

Chances of us ever living on a beach are = to our chances of winning the lottery.


Snow….oh no!

Not looking forward to the approaching winter storm with its 8 to 18 inches of snow. We are told it should arrive sometime after 8:30 p.m.


Wild weather approaches

According to our weather reports, beginning at 4 a.m. (2 hours from when I am writing this), we will have snow. The first significant snow of our winter here.

I could’ve done without it.

Four to nine inches to fall at last report. Yeah, they can keep it.



Rainy days

Far too many rainy days in a row.

Lucy is miserable.

So am I.

Sun, we need sun to take the edge off.

Sun to bring back some form of sanity.

Cold, colder, coldest?

I truly do not like the cold. I used to be able to tolerate it, but lately it makes my bones ache so.

I hope this is my last winter here. I want to move south.

With my luck, the new administration, and The Curmudgeon’s health, I’ll still be here next year and will probably be a homeless person.

Had all the rain we’ve had been snow…

We’d be buried in it.

I’m happy for the rain.

I’m glad we didn’t get snow.

I happy to have this weird winter.

I don’t like snow.

Winter sucks even without the snow

Too cold to sit outside.

Too cold to enjoy a walk.

Too cold.

Writer reality

You know it’s getting COLD when…

I finally drag out my sweat pants and put on Tabi socks with my flip-flops.

Lucy insists/yells/barks like crazy at me… on having me put her hoodie on her before she goes out, and she rolls herself up in a fuzzy blanket when she comes in.

The Curmudgeon’s truck gets stubborn about starting. Nope, don’t wanna…

Gavin puts up with a cushion in his crate. Yep, only when it’s cold. He’d rather sleep in a bare crate. That’s my idiot dog.



Not looking forward to winter

I was enjoying our unseasonable October weather and now that it is more like normal for this time of year, I am ready to get out of here.

Yep, don’t like the cold. Makes my bones ache something awful.

Seems that Lucy isn’t very fond of the cold weather either. She’s starting to look for her hoodie.

Lucy ready for snow

Fabulous break in the weather

Cool enough last night to turn off the AC, turn on the whole house fan, and open the windows.

Even nicer tonight. Down to 63 degrees–great sleeping weather. This is like the Pennsylvania weather we used to have.

We’re supposed to enjoy this until Tuesday of next week where it will pop back up into the 90s.

Finally, a break in the weather!

We’re supposed to drop to 71 degrees by 5 a.m. a definite improvement over the last eight days of terrible heat. The high for the day should reach 86 degrees and only feel like 89 degrees with lower humidity.

This is a good thing.

This means I can get some outdoor work done. With the heat and rain, the yard and gardens became sorely neglected. I now have tons of vines and tall weeds to get rid of over the next week.

I’m tired just thinking about it.
