1815/28th March 2021 At times, over the past few days, the world seemed really to have turned black and white. Clouds rolled over us like thick wedges of cotton wool. Yet....some colour is returning: Only naked stalks, but you can see life re-awakening. With the snow gone, I saw how the deer had kept themselves … Continue reading Blue clouds
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?
4th February 2021 What a difference a clear blue sky can make. Sadly, today we're back to the grey variety, with periodic, varying types of precipitation. Grant keeps popping up to see if the gas delivery has come yet. I offered him my phone in case he feels like calling. He seems to think perhaps … Continue reading The demon App
At last it looks like Winter, even if it isn't really all that cold. It's barely freezing. And here I am with a ton of heavy sweaters that I thought I would need, upstate NY. Of course, my body thermostat is completely haywire. I seem doomed to be either too hot or too cold. Or, … Continue reading Who a cat loves
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!
A moody sky entertained us yesterday as we drove to Glens Falls Here's my situation. It will not do. But I don't know how to fix it. Forget getting help from Facebook. YouTube can often help, but not this time. So let me tell you what's up. It's been some time now, that I've ignored … Continue reading Creepy
dear little clouds, just drifting along Our sky has been full of drama these past few days. At the risk of boring you with these endless offerings, I may get around to choosing a handful, from the day we did not get a tornado. Glancing out the window and all around, I decided my life … Continue reading “Joy”?

At least today it's not 100F degrees, like it is in Siberia, where the average June high is 68F. Verkhoyansk, Siberia is the place with the coldest ever recorded temperature of -90F in 1892. Needless to say, such high temperatures are hugely problematic, forest fires, melting ice cap and all sorts. Everyone has problems these … Continue reading It’s Hot…
Even in the drabness I see beauty in the textures, the lines, the starkness of it all. There aren't many things I know for sure, but one is that you should always be ready for surprises because they will come. That is certain! So it was really not such a surprise to see that the … Continue reading No surprises
