Good morning org!

Snow bank around the house is reaching the floor floor windows. Nice and warm. See our low tonight posted below. Not a brag, just a fact.

Rec'd 2 inches of snow on my Dart Wednesday morning. In the valley below the most snow seen was 1.5 inches. Not anywhere near a storm by northern New England standards. The low here was +17° (-8°C) w/the high 42° (6°C).

Sure is 60 and 70 (16-22C) degrees warmer than much of February. Even the sun greeted the North Country. A fantastic day. Outlook is for more above freezing days this w/e and into next week.

Fired up the Ariens Sno Thro and skirted the house. There was a 3" melt space between the snowband mounded against the house. Took my time and filled it in with blowing snow.

Then cleaned the drive paying more attention to the foot where a berm has been since the last snow event a few days ago. Spent extra time widening the drive. Soon the snow with begin to melt and freeze each night.

The road was unplowed when first cleaning the drive. Then the town plowed it going down the mtn and then on the up side, Nice and wide into both sides of the ditches.

Decided to go for a ride to Whitefield, NH. Spent 90 minutes clearing the drive widening it and the walkway. When getting out of the car my legs were sore and tight from the walking earlier. Will need to build up my legs to enjoy some walks, then gradually some hikes.

Wanted a chicken breast for cutlets. Also wanted to get out of the house for a pleasant drive and see some views. Found single split (bone in) chicken breasts at Mac's Mkt to be huge and only $1.49 a lb.

Then grabbed some immensely pink ground pork for just $1.99. Difficult to pass on these two bargains. My pal had just left to cover the meat dept at the Franconia NH store. A distance of 18 Miles / 28 Km.

Returned home for a pork burger smothered in baby bella mushrooms, onions, and bell peppers. Added some thick cheddar cheese to the lean, juicy pork burger, then sat in front of the TV to watch the second season of the original Mission Impossible ATV show.

Prefer Jim Phelps (Peter Graves) as the team leader. The original TV series ran from September 1966 to March 1973, then returned to television for two seasons on ABC, from 1988 to 1990.

Lenard Nimoy was a regular on that show for two years (1969-1971) featured as the Great Paris in 49 episodes.

Nimoy played Spock in 79 episodes in the original Star Trek TV series (1967-1969) and was nominated for a Prime Time Emmy Award for Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama Series.

The air temp is 30° (-1°C). The temp is to be drop to 17° (-8°C) this afternoon, then the deep freeze, -16° (-31°C) overnight into Friday.

Civil twilight is 5:48 AM EST. Night is 6:08 PM.

Sunrise: 6:17 AM. Set: 5:39 PM.

Length of day: 11h 22m. Length of visible light: 12h 20m. Tomorrow will be 3m 04s longer.

Will visit Big Papa's Mkt later and a few other stores.

Have a fantastic day!

Good morning, org,

Not too busy a morning for me today, but maybe a long one. Hubby and I are going to the Senior Center for breakfast and then I'll head on up to Mom's; she has a 10:15 appointment with the kidney doctor, mostly to see how her sodium level's doing now that she's taking the salt pills. I also hope to see if they have any clue as to WHY those levels kept going down. Hoping for a not-too-long-wait there.

Have a great day!

Good morning org!

Snow depth is 24 - 30" It collapses under its weight and would be much deeper. Lots of snow to melt come tghe end of this month. Also lots of maple sugaring going to be done. This means Spring!

Woke up at 1:30 AM Tuesday and saw the temp was falling below zero quickly. Lit the kero heater and warmed the house while my early morning rounds were completed.

Always a pleasing feeling to be so warm the window in front of me needs to be opened. Especially when the outside temp is -9° (-23°C).

Enjoyed watching my fave shows on Netflix. Got to see more of the movie Interstellar. Hope to put my nose to the grindstone and finish it one day soon.

When the temp was into the 20 late morning, a collection of the recyclables was gathered and brought to the town's Recycling Center. Lots of folks were zipping in and getting rid of their accumulations.

Returned home to makes more chicken noodle (w/linguine) soup w/the emphasis on the celery and carrots. Added a giant couple of hand fills of diced spinach to the works. Need to thaw out some chicken to add latter.

While getting the soup made the last thawed chicken breasts were sliced a ½" thick, dipped into eggs, then soaked in bread crumbs w/Parmesan cheese, garlic and some minced onion. One side is fried in evoo, then flipped w/ 6 Italian cheese added and cooked spinach.

Temp was good for a walk, yet all the cooking killed more time than expected. It became time to finish my afternoon posts. The sky turned gray/white at 1 PM w/a snow event overnight into this morning. 3-5" is expected by sun up.

The air temp is 18° (-8°C). The high is to be 37° (3°C).

Civil twilight is 5:49 AM EST. Night is 6:06 PM.

Sunrise: 6:18 AM. Set: 5:37 PM.

Length of day: 11h 18m. Length of visible light: 12h 17m. Tomorrow will be 3m 04s longer.

Have a fabulous day!

Lighting10K, After a high of 39° and drizzle, we are expecting to feels 74° tomorrow, then dripping back to 48° on Thursday.
Go figure!

Claudie, We are experiencing "yo-yo" temperature till Saturday!
Hope your stuff day was as expected!

TUrtLE, Smearing scent from glands onto their tail and jerking and swinging the tail to waft the sharp odor toward their opponent; sounds like mating rituals of some of my friends! :^)

Farful, Friends and piazza; what more could a person want?
Hope you have the power!

Good Morning org,

Don't ask me.

"While humans are concerned about smelling nice when attracting a potential mate, having a strong stench is a good thing for ring-tailed lemurs. During mating season, males compete for females through stink fights that involve smearing scent from glands onto their tail and jerking and swinging the tail to waft the sharp odor toward their opponent."

Have a Terrific Tuesday!

Good morning, org,

Really weird weather we're having here, but I'll take it. Warm temps (starting yesterday; got up to almost 70°!) continuing through Thursday, and then it gets cooler again. I was able to put my plants out on the back porch yesterday, and I actually left them out there overnight; probably won't even bring them back in until Thursday afternoon when the low gets back down into the low 30s. No sunshine, though; cloudy, cloudy, and good chances for rain.

I have an unexpected stay-at-home day today. :) I did Mom's shopping yesterday b/c it's supposed to rain off-and-on today and I didn't want to take the chance of taking her out in that kind of weather (she still has that 'shoe' on her left foot)...unless I HAVE to. It'll be nice to get some 'stuff' done early this week. :)

Have a great day!

Good morning org!

Rec'd 2.5 inches (6.35 cm) of snow overnight yesterday. The highest total in the state was 3" (7 cm). Would not even call it a snowstorm. Left at 9 AM for a ride south on US Rt 3 to Whitefield, NH.

Wanted to see the pretty snow cover tree branches before the temps near freezing and the winds cleared the snow from them.

Stopped to say hello to my pal the meat mgr. Looked at a few chuck steaks and passed. He told me corned beef was going to be on sale for $2.99 a lb Friday for the special of the week along with pork sirloin mini roasts for a $1.99 a lb.

Plan on getting a few of the corned beef for some crock pot meals and to make excellent corned beef hash for brekky. Will have him grind up the 98% lean pork sirloin roasts for healthy burgers, meatballs, and some meatloaf.

Passed on stopping in Shaw's to buy something just for a Monopoly ticket. Bought gas that has increased to $2.26 a gallon. Then went into the PO to open a weeks worth of mail and write checks for utilities and bills last month.

Winds were picking up strong from the Northwest in the aftrernoon. Overnight will see 15 to 20 mph steady winds. Always am worried w/ the wind causing blowdowns and shutting off the power.

Do have enough kero for two nights of extra comfortable heat w/the space heater. Sure hope after Friday morning that will be the end of the deep freeze this winter.

February was expensive with lots of kerosene purchased. Bitter cold, just like the temps seen each winter 20+ y/a.

The air temp is 5° (-15°C). The high is to be 26° (-3°C).

Civil twilight is 5:51 AM EST. Night is 6:05 PM.

Sunrise: 6:20 AM. Set: 5:36 PM.

Length of day: 11h 15m. Length of visible light: 12h 14m. Tomorrow will be 3m 04s longer.

Have a wonderful day!

Welcome back!

I'll be going out this morning; I have a 9:15 appointment at the nail salon, and then I'll go to the store for Mom. I already told her yesterday that with the rain predicted for tomorrow (and through Thursday, actually), I wasn't going to take her to the store (she still has that 'shoe' on her foot). She wasn't too thrilled, but okay with it. Oh, well.

Good morning org!

Is it time to return to posting?

Slept nicely and Woke up at 2 AM Sunday morning. The second floor was a bit on the chilly side. Looked on the net for the temps outdoors. It was -11° (-24°C) at 2 AM.

Lit the kero heater on the first floor and warmed up some homemade chicken noodle soup. A quick care free brekky w. few calories and lots of health. In 15 minutes the house was heating up rapidly and the thermostat set at 70° (21°C) no longer fired up the propane wall heater.

Returned upstairs to complete my early morning rounds It was a bit later than usual, yet finished as early as was normal. Checked out the putlocker.is site and discovered the new domain is now called Watchfree.to.

They have the same format as before w/ lots of movies and TV shows to view for free. Was going to watch Safe (2012), Instead began to watch "Interstellar" (2014) w/ no less than 22 links of partners.

Some want one to sign up w/their e-mail. Canned those sign ups for several that allow instant streaming, no questions asked. Saw a ⅓ of the whopping 2hr 43 min movie "Interstellar," then paused Interstellar to travel to the grocery store.

The Lancaster Shaw's was quite busy for 11 AM on a Sunday morning. Looked over steaks and decided against one for a birthday lunch. Wanted a Rising crust DiGiorno Supreme pizza, 32 oz on sale for $3.99, this w/e only.

The store had sold out, so a rain check was rec'd. Did buy some real nice asparagus on sale for the week for a low (for here) $1.77 a lb. Nothing else was wanted. Passed on the 1 lb raw 50-70 shrimp for $5.99.

Also passed on the fatty chuck roasts for $2.99 a lb and the other W/e only sale items.

Was not hungry enough for a 6 or footlong sub at Subway so a rare visit was made to MdD's for a bacon clubhouse burger for $4.79, $5.22 w/tax. No Mac sauce or salt both which are laced w/ MSG was ordered. Sort of a small birthday treat for me.

Looking forward to a warmer night in the teens (-8ºC) and an inch of snow in the morning. Revised from 3-4" just one day ago. Thursday overnight should be the last bitter cold night of the winter. Please.

The air temp is 19° (-7°C). The high is to be 33° (1°C).

Civil twilight is 5:53 AM EST. Night is 6:04 PM.

Sunrise: 6:22 AM. Set: 5:35 PM.

Length of day: 11h 12m. Length of visible light: 12h 11m. Tomorrow will be 3m 03s longer.

Have a pleasant day!

Good morning, org,

Well, it's not raining or anything; just really cloudy and gloomy, so I guess I can say that March is coming in like a lamb?? Maybe I need to wait 'til I see how the rest of the day is, though.

I am staying home again today, though, this day won't be as nice (outside) as it was yesterday. Rain is supposedly moving in; hope it waits until later this afternoon, so they can get the big race in. I know there are thousands of people going that hope the same thing.

Have a great day!

Good Morning org,
Still missing you.

Your Sunday movie is a Steve Politte video presentation, Waterscapes.
The song is "Meadows Full," from Video Blocks Music.

You will note that this movie is longer than I usually choose.
There is no text, only graphics and the music. You decide how long you want to view it. I chose it when I saw all the birds in the first 1:28 min. When I drove to town on Friday the sky was full of sea gulls, I suspect hundreds. I don't think I have ever seen that many in one flock.

This movie also brings the ocean to you as well as other bodies of water.

Quoting Steve Politte," This is the kind of video that you just enjoy God's artwork of Creation, and enhanced by beautiful music. God indeed is awesome. God bless and enjoy."

Good morning org!

The low Saturday morning saw the still air temp reach 24.8° below zero (-32C). Had the kero heater on since 5PM the day before. What a pleasant feeling waking up to t-shirt temps in the hose this w/the bdrm window open 3 inches.

Finished my rounds earlier than usual, played a multi player game of StarCraft, its been 10 days since my last, then took a needed nap. The feeling of heavy eyes was overwhelming. The 90 minute nap my all the difference.

Saw an original The Twilight Zone epi, Criminal Minds, Law and Order while the sun did its thing by heating up the North Country. In no time the temp reached 4 above. Cold to you, warm for a winter day in this area

Passed on a run to the Recycling Center for a few things wanted in Littleton. Needed some 26 oz cans of Cream of Chicken condensed soup that Shaw's was out of for two weeks.

Visited my pal the store mgr of Rite Aidto get some cases of Bouble Bag strong ale from the Long Trail Brewery in Woodstock, VT. Also wanted a can of french vanilla coffee, in between homemade chicken noodle soup on our cold days.

Returned to Big Papa's Mket for broccoli crowns $1.25 a head, a few bananas foe 38¢ a lb, and got a deal on 14 10 oz pkgs of oatmeal raisin cookies for 75¢ each Teir reg low price was a $1 ea on Thurs. Liked them and wanted a stock for the house.

Stopped at the Gold House for a large steak bomb w/provolone, still just $8.06 w/tax. Few others can even touch a large steak and cheese for so little cost.

Spun by Mac's Mkt in Whitefield to get a few 6 Italian shredded cheese pkgs, 8 oz for $2.69. Spoke to my pal the meat mgr before he was through work for the day.

The air temp is -15° (-26°C). The high is to be 30° (-1°C) in the northern NH mtns.

Civil twilight is 5:54 AM EST. Night is 6:03 PM.

Sunrise: 6:24 AM. Set: 5:33 PM.

Length of day: 11h 09m. Length of visible light: 12h 08m. Tomorrow will be 3m 03s longer.

Have a splendid day!

Good morning, org,

Since it's race weekend in this area and since there's an outlet mall in my town, I believe I will just stay home. No need to have to deal with all those extra people. :)

Have a great day!

Good morning org!

It was -17° for the low temp yesterday morning. Lasted from 6 AM until 8:30. Then slow to warm up. The temp was 4 degrees warmer on Mt Washington. Had the kero heater on at 4 PM on Thursday. Needed to open my bdrm window to allow cold air to regulate the room temp.

Another clear night will see even colder temps. 16 to 22 below zero (to -30°C) are expected. The wind chill is meaningless in these mtns. Unless one is outdoors.

Made some spinach stuffed chicken breast w/o the bacon in the morning. getting to be good at tweaking these two new recipe. Tried one a touch of mayo, spinach and feta cheese.

The other had ricotta and Parmesan w/the spinach mix. Both are very excellent. Would depend on the mood one is in. Have to wonder what a little tomato sauce or bruschetta would do to the taste. Did forgo the turkey bacon making these.

Played w/a recipe for pork chp gravy w/lt soy, brown sugar, cornstarch, apple juice, and ground ginger. Made a few tiny batches w/diff combo. Not a big hit to me like Tuscan sauce or even BBQ sauce.

Enjoyed watching some Netflix TV shows. Rec'd a mid afternoon phone call from the auto body shop. They want me at 8 Am Monday Yet will not have a car to loan until after 9.

Need to be somewhere by 9:30 AM so they are searching for a loaner. They also added another 24 hours to repair the car due to painting it. Now a two day job for paint and install a small applique panel to the front bumper cover.

Sounds like a lot of baloney to me. May go elsewhere in a week or even two. They do not work Saturdays. Lit the kero heater just before 5 PM to have the house hot overnight. It sure is even w/the bdrm window open 4 inches top and bottom.

The air temp is -18° (-28°C) and dropping like a rock. Expect -24° (-31°C) this morning by 7 AM. The high is to be 22° (-6°C).

Civil twilight is 5:56 AM EST. Night is 6:01 PM.

Sunrise: 6:25 AM. Set: 5:32 PM.

Length of day: 11h 06m. Length of visible light: 12h 05m. Tomorrow will be 3m 03s longer.

Have a tremendous day!

Record cold temps developed overnight. One source said that the record was tied. The other source said that the record was broken by 1° lower.
 
TGIF!

Good Morning org,

Missing you this morning.

"Size matters when it comes to the horns on a male goat or sheep. Head-butting clashes become more violent during breeding season, and the winner typically breeds with all the females in a flock or herd. So while fighting over females is frowned upon in human relationships, it’s go big or go home with the bachelor group for these hoofed mammals."

Happy Friday!

Good morning, org,

School today?

Thank goodness, it's going to be another drying-out day for us before it starts to rain again Sunday evening (no threat of snow/ice here as the temps will be above freezing during that time). Hope the rain holds off b/c this is race weekend in this neck of the woods. While the race track is named Atlanta Motor Speedway, it is located about 15 miles (if that) west of where I live (in a town named Hampton). Not close enough (thank goodness) to hear the roar of the cars, but sometimes we DO see the planes 'practicing' for their flyovers, if they have them, that is. Nice. That's the part I like the best, while hubby loves the races.

As for what I'm doing today....not really sure yet. :)

Have a great day!

Good morning org!

10-4 on the minimal posting. Will stay warm and happy.

Got up at 1:30 AM yesterday morning. The wall thermostat is set for 68° (20°C) and that was the temp of the house. Still felt on the chilly side for a few hours. Finally went downstairs when the temp was below zero and lit the kero heater.

Just before sunrise the temp reached -7°F. That was nearly 10 degrees warmer than the forecast (-25°C). In an hour the kero heater was so hot from the heat rising to the second floor that the bdrm window needed to be open.

There is no low or medium setting on the portable heater. It is either on burning efficiently or gives of soot or odor when not fully turned on (meaning burning not efficiently). One regulates the heat by the windows being open.

We are talking below zero temps outside. Have the wall furnace for the warmer temps. Turned off the heater before leaving for the morning.

Left early to drive to Littleton. Few venture out during below zero temps unless there is a reason. Bought a few deals at the mkt. Yams are 58¢ a lb, cukes 60¢ ea, 10 oz of baby bella are $2.25, leaf lettuce was $1.50, 1 lb of baby spinach $3, cantaloupes $1.50 ea, and celery $1.34 a bunch.

Also went for the special deal of nice and soft oatmeal raisin cookies 10 oz for a dollar. No carrageenan and minimal MSG. The store owner routinely buys a pallet deal for cheap money and passes on the savings to his customers.

Have purchased brilliant LED mini flashlights, bruschetta, evoo and the like for short money. Some of this weeks three days of deal are found here at the Big Papa's Mkt Facebook page.

Bought at WM were two 15 oz containers of Ricotta Cheese for $1.94 ea. Want to experiment with the stuffed chicken breasts further and perhaps make more crock pot lasagna.

The kero heater was lit just before 4 PM to have the house hot when the temp drops overnight. Love to feel the extra heat at night and when waking up.

The air temp is -8° (-22°C) 7. The high is to be 16° (-9°C).

Civil twilight is 5:58 AM EST. Night is 6:00 PM.

Sunrise: 6:27 AM. Set: 5:31 PM.

Length of day: 11h 03m. Length of visible light: 12h 02m. Tomorrow will be 3m 02s longer.

Have a delightful day!

Good morning, org,

Thanks for the heads-up about your minimal posting through the weekend.

Yesterday's doctor appointment for Mom went well (go back in 6 months). We got in and out in pretty good time, and since I wasn't really sure what the weather would be like overnight or today, I decided to go and get my grocery shopping done. That was at about 11:15. The store wasn't TOO busy, but busier than it normally is on a Wednesday. Light rain started about noon, but I had the groceries in the car by then and was on my way home.

It's reported that several counties in north GA got between 6" and 9" of snow! Whooeee! That was on top of what they got in the last storm! :( WHO says it doesn't snow in the South? BTW, we just got rain; I checked the rain gauge and there's an inch in it.

Weather-wise (today), we are in the clear where I live. Well, not sure if there's any ice on the roads, but the temp IS 34° so maybe not. It's supposed to be in the high 40s today, so that'll be good. Already, looking out the window next to me, I can see some blue sky, so that's good, too! :)

Well, since I was able to get my grocery shopping done yesterday, I don't have any errands for today. :)

Have a great day!

Good morning org!

Will take you outdoors for the -33 experience. Have a loner car while mine is in the garage. Cold tonight.

Finished my posts early yesterday then watched some episodes on Netflix of America: The Story of Us. Learning some events that the history books do not mention. Also saw my fave TV series while waiting for the one day warmup.

Saw the temp recover rapidly from a warmer low of 1° (-17°C) today. With the deep freeze returning each night through the weekend, wanted to go to the store and get more chicken breasts to try my new recipes.

Got a fabulous deal at Mac's Mrk for split chicken breasts. They were $2.29 earlier in the morning and reduced to $1.49 a lb. Bought three of them, Neufchatel, 8 oz on sale for 99¢, and Feta cheese 8 oz for $4.99.

Returned home to work with 2 chicken breasts into bacon wrapped stuffed w/spinach breasts cooked in the toaster oven. Like them w/a little mayo mixed in the spinach, feta cheese and garlic mix.

Temp reached a high of 27° (-3°C) which was perfect for me to wear a baseball spring jacket w/light gloves and go for a walk up the mtn road. The late morning was wonderfully sunny w/a few little clouds floating by quickly at 6,000 ft.

Walked south up past my forest to see the new clear cut upo against my property line. Have some blow downs that the attorney landowner who owns right beside me had that section clear cut last winter.

The bright side of the new clear cut is that views of the Kilkenny Range and Mt Cabot are easily seen from my side of the loop road. Even the 4 story barn on the other side of the loop can now be seen.

While the sun remains below the 100'+ tall forest trees, it felt warm when some of the tree cut properties were reached. The sound was dead still. Only a light sound of wind was heard — and a woodpecker working for its meal.

Walked to the beginning of the fire road. Looked down it to notice the logging trucks have finished cutting. No new truck tracks w/their tire chains were seen. Thoughts of Spring and temps above freezing on most days filled my mind.

Then it was time to return. Walked north past the custom log cabin. It looks like it has not seen visitor's in a long time. Though the driveway was plowed from a storm several weeks aago. Much of the roof was raked.

In the one mile south up the mountain there are only two houses, both can be seen from the road. The trees have blankets covered much of their limbs. Were bare, it is the wind that uncovered them.

The two mile round trip has several hundred feet of elevation gain. My gps has not worked in several years. Plan on building up my legs in the warmer temps so that the entire loop road of 4¼ miles w/its 650 ft of elevation gain can be done w/ease.

My Co Insur adjuster stopped by to inspect to damage from the hit and run 1 month ago. Would imagine the estimate and the draft of the check will be rec'd next week.

The air temp is 2° (-17°C). The high is to be 15° (-9°C). Yet -14° (-26°C) tonight.

Civil twilight is 5:59 AM EST. Night is 5:59 PM.

Sunrise: 6:29 AM. Set: 5:29 PM.

Length of day: 11h 00m. Length of visible light: 11h 59m. Tomorrow will be 3m 02s longer.

Off to the Mkt later to get some deals on produce and shop at a few other stores.

Have a fantastic day!
