1020/10th February 2021 There's a saying here, in Seattle too and no doubt any number of places around the world: "If you don't like the weather, wait a minute." The weather here changes so suddenly, it's hard to keep up. Although, lately it's not made a difference to the way the countryside looks. We've been … Continue reading Wait a minute…
0905/7th February, 2021 1231/8th February, 20211025/9th February 2021 A quick weather review from Cambridge, New York and yes, it's snowing Previous winters, here, when we've had heavy snow, it lingered for a while but inevitably the weather warmed sufficiently between snowfalls so that it didn't keep accumulating. This did, in fact, happen after that huge … Continue reading Midwinter madness?
My prayer flags 30th January 2021 The leaning tower of Cambridge. I wasn't going to post this picture because the angle is off. It isn't really leaning that much, but I'm becoming obsessed. I see a man with a big mouth and a pointy nose, wearing a cap. I was going to name him... ...but … Continue reading Sparklers
This could turn into a never-ending photographic event. Day three and the forecast has changed: The "oracle" on my cellphone has moved Monday's expected warmer temperatures with rain, to freezing temperatures and, - snow. Ah. Rain is moved to Thursday, so it says. That could make for less attractive images, but they could prove interesting, … Continue reading Ongoing event
According to the infallible weather media, we are to get a serious "strom", somewhere over the next day or two. The sky does look a bit "stromy" and it was decidedly cold this morning. Cold enough, anyway that I've started re-building my ice castle. According to this photograph, we must have had 5 nights of … Continue reading Preparing for an event
4th December 2019 Nope. It's not snowing. Yesterday a few flakes fell, amounting to nothing and today, once more is bright and sunny. It's way too warm for this time of year! Last year, at this time, it was very seasonal. My Christmas tree looked so good. Maybe I'm daft, but I love snow. This … Continue reading Too warm!
This was my first view of the day this morning. Probably, I should have gone back to bed. Not because I don't love snow Even though it was a surprise My not-so-smartphone was still insisting that Cambridge was a balmy 65F and sunny. It would have been a fine Saturday. If not for the recently … Continue reading Chasing my blog
Having managed to rise at a decent hour, unlike yesterday, I flung back the curtains only to discover: OMG more snow! Not a complaint. I love the sight of snow, it was just a slight surprise. Like when I was at Yellowstone with my dad and my brother in June, 2002 and it snowed. I … Continue reading One last gasp?
Boy cardinal is a little out-numbered One of those days Was followed by: A moody sky that brought unexpected snow Poor squirrel left his 'brolly at home, so had to use his tail instead and a day later : The flicker got to referee the starlings and the blue-jays. Poor flicker is a solitary chap … Continue reading My friend Flicker et al
This morning I unwittingly disturbed some ladybirds that were trying to sleep in the groove of my sliding door. I was sweeping up some bird seed that inevitably finds it's way into everything it seems, including my bed at times! Poor ladybirds. I was horrified that I may have injured one. It's an unlikely place … Continue reading TOBY
