2 WEEKS INTO 2014


It's been almost 2 weeks since the New Year started
and we've had every kind of weather
the weather person can throw at us,
from
 ~~~ the obvious SNOW ~~~ 
"full on can't see 2 feet in front of you" stuff to 


spitting squalls
blanketing the city
as we crossed the bridge to


RAIN 
~~ oh yes the wet stuff ~~
 moisture soaking your winter clothes to


sea mist rising along the shore's edge to


hard as cement ice surrounding our bench at the park to


frigid mornings letting us know that the air is so much colder than the water to


clouds emptying SNOW or RAIN at their whim to


trail after trail ready for trekking / snowshoeing / cross country skiing to 


watching for winter surfers masked by the spray of the waves to


 attempting road ice walking or scuffing whatever works to


waking up on a high hill to watch the barrage of waves pummel our beaches to 


finally getting some protective PURPLE BOOTIES 
because my toes started to freeze to


 watching the hustle & bustle beauty in the heart of the city
caused by lower temps to


 smelling the salt air
the crisp salt air to


hiding from the crisp salt air and Jim to


just knowing we can hop in our jalopy
and be at this spot in an instant
to refresh ourselves
and
just feel the wonder of our small spot on this planet.

    1. Jim, "THINKS" he sees spring, he needs a lot of licking to straighten out his view on life!

      Winks!

  9. Hi! Some wheather you have. We got some snow. Now we have 2 weekends to go with the dogs to hunt. But if it gets colder its dangerous beacuse of the water we have in the forrest, we have some Creeks. It will be thin ice and snow on top.....

    1. Please be very careful with thin ice ~~~ it is not worth getting soaking wet!

      It looks like your winter is turning out to be like what we had LAST YEAR!!

    1. It' so difficult to say.

      We listen to the local meteorologists and the national fellows and sometimes they just don't jive. To think far in advance just isn't worth the effort.

    1. I do believe you are right, Tweedles. The last 2 days have been SPRINGTIME WARM 10 C (50F) and everyone is walking around in T's or no coats. SURPRISE coming by the weekend though!!
      So yes, MOTHER NATURE is having a chuckle with all of us this year so far!

  12. We have run the gamut too. Snow storm yesterday, flurries and an inch predicted today, but 40 degrees predicted for later this week. I hate the warm spells that melt the snow, unless of course its Springtime!

  15. Gorgeous photos, Ron! Love the header and first photo of SD with MO! Just think how boring it would be to have the same old weather every day! You've got variety in spades! :)

    1. Variety keeps us alive and kickin' here on the east coast. I suspect variety is prevalent every where, but I think it's the extreme temp change that makes you realize you are part of this planet, this wonderful planet!
