Vol XVII – #340 – It’s a Marshmallow World Two Weeks Before Spring

  The weather report for the coming weekend calls for sunshine and temperatures around 40 degrees. That should take care of most of this snowfall. Can’t complain, we have had a pretty nice winter with a early taste of spring. Biscuit has a “hot spot” on his cheek.  Dr. Harrison treated him and for a week it looked like it… Read more »

Vol XVII – #339 – Let It Snow!, Let It Snow!, Let it Snow!

  We were forewarned last night before we went to bed that 5 inches of new would greet us in the morning and it did.  The roads were in miserable condition for our morning trip to town and no better at noon. Winter ain’t over.

Vol XV #283 – It Could Be A Nice Day I’d Say

This afternoon we will be in the Big City By the Bay, so the Leland Report is being posted early.  Back in 2001 when I started the LR, it was usually was posted in the am as it was a good morning email to my family.  Hard to believe that 15 years will have passed since March 30 2001.  I have been interviewed… Read more »

Vol XV #242 – It’s the Day Before Turkey Day

A nice start-up sky to begin a new day. The Turkey Day forecast isn’t the greatest, but… could be worse.  Our early morning clear sky was highlighted by a very bright setting full moon. Our family members are arriving… Click here to enter the 2016 Snow Gauge contest! Win a custom Leif Spork tile!
