If you don’t like the weather forecast just wait

The old saying here in Iowa is if you don’t like the weather forecast just wait 24 hours.  It’ll either ge much better or worse.  Case in point tomorrow. Yesterday it sounded like we were going to get hit with a snowpocalypse here. Fast forward 24 hours and now it looks like most of it is going south of us. 




Got a bit nicer today

After a couple days of it being fornicating cold out it got a bit nicer today.  I got my vehicle washed.  Yeah I know it won't stay clean for very long but she had a layer of dirt that I was getting tired of looking at.  Meanwhile, several members of my family are on their way to a Caribbean cruise so they'll be in for several days of it being nice and warm.  So I'll be going over to my brother and sister in law's place reguarly over the next week to do some cat/house sitting.  I already go



Like I said, really fornicating cold

Like I said, really fornicating cold

And the forecast around here is so cold tonight that I got the first one of these alerts for the season... It's supposed to drop to about -8 below tonight.  Cold enough to freeze one's reproductive equipment off along with other extremeties.  Have I mentioned lately my desire to be back in Lima, Peru lately?  




I cannot wait for spring

We might have some more winter weather coming in this week.  In addition to it getting really fornicating cold this week we also might have some more winter precipitation coming in too. I am so ready for spring to come now.  I am so fornicating sick of winter.  I need to get off my fat you know what and get riding my bike again.  I need the exercise and I need to resume my nasty and disgusting habit of posting GoPro timelapse videos of my bike ride adventures.




After the storm

Last Friday in to Saturday we had freezing rain followed by a couple inches of snow here in Iowa.  Where I live we had two inches of snow by Saturday morning.  Not much but enough to cover the ground and make travel interesting.  It was mostly done by Saturday evening but I had picked up pizza since I didn't want to risk going out and having the weather take a turn for the crappy.

      On a global scale, we’re dealing with Corona and so many wars and famines that I can’t count them all. On a national (German) level, we have one right wing murder or murder plot after the other. Can’t 2020 please be over already? It’s just February and I’m so done.

      This pup is not destined to be a service dog, but I bet he'll be a lot of fun for the right family:
      Many years ago, I had a neighbor who had a seeing-eye dog. OMG, that dog was crazy. I had never come across a more hyper service dog. She loved her handler, though, and when the handler passed away, her daughter petitioned to adopt the dog. When the organization tested her to see if she could be placed with another blind person, they realized she was too hyper, so she went with the daughter.
