Now that October is here, I think we can say that summer is well and truly over — de facto as well as de jure. Personally, this has been the worst summer I can remember — and if it had gone on any longer, I’m not sure I’d have survived. Worse than 2007? When my […]

If you can’t stand the heat…

… get out of town. I noticed something a bit off about my Weatherbug application this morning. It’s really about 52°. I figure the elementary school is probably on fire.

Hurricane season begins today. (Why yes, I have been stocking up on emergency supplies. Probably should have started a long time ago, but better late than never.)

And my family wonders why I moved here

At Pirate’s Cove: Miss USA, North Carolina’s Own Kristen Dalton. Kudos, though, to 1st runner-up Miss California.

March comes in like a lion

| March 2, 2009

There’s snow on the ground. It’s too dark to get a picture, even if I wanted to schlep down the stairs. Plus, I’m going to bed now. I expect the little bit of icy badness will be long gone from the roads by the time I get up and have to head out to do […]

Snow Day

| January 20, 2009

Rather than the anticipated two to four inches, it appears we got about six inches of snow. It started falling sometime last night, maybe around midnight, and there were very light flakes still coming down at 2pm today. Mycah has seen snow before, but this was a first for Kismet and Packet. I opened the […]

A chill wind blows

| January 19, 2009

In the past few days we’ve had nightly low temperatures in the single digits, but there’s been no precipitation. That’s due to change tonight, as we’re expecting a snowfall starting tonight and running into the morning. I’ve heard we’re to expect a whopping great two to four inches. That should be enough to hide the […]

Godless Americans?

I haven’t seen one iota of polling here for the North Carolina Senate race between Republican incumbent Elizabeth Dole and Democrat challenger Kay Hagen. All I see are the TV ads… over and over and over and over and over and over again… and I have no idea where the race stands as election day […]

Oh, crap

Sure, my lawn could use the rain… but this can’t be good.

The short version

| August 14, 2008

I’m busy, due in no small part to a change in employment status. (This change, I might add, is a Good Thing.) Mycah seems to be OK now. Her appetite isn’t quite up to her usual standards, but she seems otherwise fine. My lawn, on the other hand, is pretty much dead, despite the bits […]
