His Name was Benji

I’m still not sure why they give these storms names but  they do.  The weekend we got hit with Winter storm Benji.   I’m not sure where the first storm named Aiden hit but I missed it all together, lol.

No matter the name I did enjoy this snow.  Just enough to play in and just enough not to have to shovel much.  Win-Win as far as I’m concerned.   It makes me think there is an opportunity for a White Christmas to add to the seasonal fun.  Last year it was warm and the year before that we were in the 70’s.  Oh, that myth called Global Warming…you’re a hoot.


Snowy Fridays

Yesterday was 63 degrees.  Today it’s Snowing.  Oh March, you are a funny bunny.

I was hoping to get a picture of the cows in the snow but they were too busy eating.

This was the best I could do.  I did catch the hundred or so geese who stopped in the field until the storm moves on.

It’s really pretty.  The roads are wet but clear and this storm won’t be cumbersome.  All in all…not a bad way to begin the weekend!

Happy St. Patrick’s Day

I’ve been of Irish Decent my whole life and although I’m actually American by nationality if you have an ounce of Irish blood coursing through your veins you remain always an Irishman in heart and blood!  So go get a drink…kick up your heels and Kiss someone just because they are Irish!

IMG_9057 (400x300)We had some St. Patrick’s Day snow arrive this morning.  It wasn’t a bad snow storm.  We got 1-3″ of snow but after a long winter of snow it has really gotten very old all of this snow.

Spring is only days away and we get warm days and then Winter is all “Hey Girl Hey”.  I’m ready for spring.  I’m sick of mud and salty roads and what not.  Bring on the green grass, leafy trees, beautiful flowers and yes…sneezing!  I’m ready for it!

Who knows, we may get another snow storm this month but at least I know it’s coming to an end, Wahoo!!!


No One Told Mother Nature…

…that it isn’t even winter yet 😉  We’ve had at least one snowfall per week over the last several weeks.  Technically it’s still Autumn.

It makes things Christmasy for sure but the snow makes me want to go into hibernation, lol.

Autumn ends on Saturday which is funny because it’s supposed to be about 54 degrees.  Any who, welcome winter!

I Dreamt I was In Narnia

It snowed this weekend in my town.  It was a beautiful snow.  One of those snows that if you didn’t take a moment to look at it and enjoy it…it was gone in a blink of the eye.

Welcome To Narnia

I couldn’t believe my eyes when I saw this cardinal just perching in the snow.  There were many birds flying about but what contrast this little guys redness casts upon the snow.

A Rare Treasure

Who goes jogging in a snow storm…

…This guy!

And one last snow shot…

It was a gorgeous morning.  Even though it snowed the roads were clear and my errands went well.  This is the good kind of snow.  It doesn’t wear out it’s welcome, lol.

It’s Snowing…Bring on the Jackholes

Oh, I don’t blame you for laughing.  Seriously…are you kidding me with more snow?  Oh please don’t give me…’Ah, but it’s winter silly’.  Yes I know it’s winter…I’m freezing my ass off but when Mother Nature gives you 2 days of 70 degree weather the body and mostly the mind start sliding into that rejoicing hymn called Spring.
It’s a rather cruel trick MN plays on us.  We got about 4″ but by the time I headed out to work it was starting to melt.  You know after we shoveled the driveway, lol.
What I will never understand is why people drive crazy when the weather is foul.  As I was driving into work there was this chick in a blue car who was driving extremely fast (Hello its slippery out there moron) and then she was driving my ass when I refused to go 50 mph.  Yes the road was plowed and salted but one slick spot and that’s all it takes to smash-up your car people.  I wasn’t driving 5 mph I was going about 35 and since that was the actual posted speed limit I thought I was good.  Frickin’ people!  I don’t wish her physical harm I just hope she slides and it scares her enough so she shits her pants.  Yeah…I’m mean like that!

Well at least my nemesis Hurricane Schwartz is having a good day, lol 🙂
