It was 13C when Chester and I walked along the Red River this morning and already, about an hour later, it is 16C.  They say it is going up to 28C this afternoon, followed by a chance of thunder showers.  I love the heat, but also love the fact that I have air conditioning in… Continue reading The Furniture Move Continues

I woke up to some fresh and very wet snow this morning.  The white stuff was still coming down – but with a temperature of 0C, it was turning to mush as it landed.  It is going to be very icy when this freezes but it is now +1C. After my workout at the Y,… Continue reading January 23rd

I finally have my computer back and can get back to a normal life again! 🙂 Hello everyone! It is a beautiful day again here. It is hard to believe that this is January because we NEVER have temperatures this mild in January. We normally have a February thaw once the ice sculptures are being… Continue reading January 16th

Today is a very nice winter day here.  It is -16C as I am writing this.  If winter was always like this, I would not mind it at all.  Its that -30’s stuff that I don’t like, especially with a wind.  The dogs and I had our usual morning walk along the Red River.  We… Continue reading January 4th

I got my new fridge yesterday and am very happy with it.  The delivery guys from Lockport… Continue reading December 5th

November 20th

It is hard to believe that we are nearing the end of November and the temperatures are in the +C and absolutely no snow!  Right now at 6pm, it is +6C.  This almost makes up for the nasty summer we had this year. My Christmas Cactus is pretty much in full bloom now.   🙂 I… Continue reading November 20th

November 4th

It is a chilly -1C this morning with a forecast high of +4C.  I am anxiously waiting to see if their forecast for my weekend (Friday and Saturday) is true though, as they say +11C for both days.  I might actually get some yard work done before the snow flies if that happens.  I did… Continue reading November 4th
