Vol XVI # 010 – A Phonogenic Day

  Another one of those in-between clippers day. That beautiful blue sky is clouding up in preparation of another clipper system on it’s way.  In spite of the cold, the sun is high enough to melt the last snow preparing it for the next… irritating.  The TV weather persons show warming a couple of days away, never tomorrow, always couple… Read more »

Vol XV #332 – A Nice Day In Spite of it Getting Cloudy

Received news of the passing of Diana Silvius Gits, pictured below many Leland summers ago.  Was… Read more »

Vol XV #299 – Forever Flaking

Another day, another day with snowflakes.  No accumulation, just flaking.  Fantastic sunset last night with the hope of more sunshine today, but… it’s flaking out.  Just kidding, it’s actually not that bad out, no wind and not that cold.  The southeast and east coast are in store for a massive blizzard with projections of two to three feet of snow.  19 states… Read more »
