 I'm not gonna fall for that "Look behind you!" joke again.

Sunday, February 22, 2015: As a testament to just how frozen over we were, this rain and milder weather is really not eating away at the snow and ice the way I thought it might. I had the delusion I’d wake up this morning and see the snow pack all but…

Wednesday, February 18, 2015: The beach drives are fully hazardous, mainly where sand-ice blocks the way. Sand-ice are those chunks of breakaway beach that get deposited at the high tide line -- and often cross the…

2/15/15 Forget savin' yourself ... Save the frickin' pipes ... Jam 'em with a pencil

We don't often get snow in these parts. Just sayin'. 

Sunday, February 15, 2015: What a revoltin’ development this is. Not only are we going to freeze our asses down to the bone tonight but later in the week another similar arctic blast is going to go single-digit on those prefrozen asses  – taking us…

Saturday, February 14, 2015: You know as well as me the weather seldom plays out the way it’s planned

"I guess that means 'No!' to a date, right?" 

Saturday, February 14, 2015: You know as well as me the weather seldom plays out the way it’s planned, i.e. forecasted. But if this system explodes just off the coast – and just to our north -- we could see wrap around winds easily the equivalent of a…
