i walked today....temperature in the mid teens.....but really needed some things....but starting to warm up....beginning tomorrow and by middle of next week the forecast is for temperatures in the high 40's and low 50's.....but to conclude that winter is over would be a mistake....I've lived in the north country for far too long to make that assumption...it would be reckless....but as an old friend was fond of saying:
" the weather forecasters are the only people who get paid for being right only 25% of the time"
l remember we got about 15" of snow one year on Mother's Day.....also driving to the golf club i was a member at the last Sunday in April for the opening party...thru 12" of wet snow.....up here we have 3 seasons....winter...just was winter....and soon will be winter....

took a short walk this AM...needed a few things from the plaza, and with the rain we've had i could take the short cut, but just a dusting of fresh snow, a little slippery in spots but not bad about 15*F, but 20 mph winds, so the windchill was in single digits...bundled up and was fine.....
Blogshares is down, so have watched a little tube, and played some games on face book.....
DANG!!!!!
my Internet vendor has a nasty habit of going off line, briefly, but that's not the point....this time i had enough saved that i could retrieve it, when i  could get back on....
[expletives delete]
went to publish and lost my blasted connection...again
let's hope it publishes this time or i may not delete the expletives....

it's been a nice quiet day...every Tuesday is when my rooms are cleaned....not by me....part of the services i pay for.....we are under a winter advisory....again.... but we are so use to it that, that it hardly even causes a second thought....I've read the alerts, and saw the radars and it will most probably go below us....again...we probably will catch a bit...but nothing that we can't handle....could have walked today but really have what i need until Thursday....so why walk.....
have played a bunch of Blogshares today...not about gaining spots but preparing to gain spots...sometimes in games or life preparing for transitions .....are the key to advancement ....

typical of this atypical winter it was low 40s*F today and just light wind...walked twice....once to the local food mart....for just a few things and the second time to the local Denny's for a fish fry.....
have taken it easy today...slept in...well at least for me....and have not played blogshares aggressively today.....just needed a break....
relax...kick back and watch a little boob tube.....okay....more then a little.....
