Prayers, Prose, and Promises - with respect to John Denver

Whew. It seems that the wind speed has begun to fall almost as fast as the temperature. It was 34 this morning when I went to the post office, and the wind was at least 30 to 40 mph. The wind is down to a more typical 10 to 15 mph, but the temp has fallen to 21. The forecast says that we will get... Sign in to see full entry.

We had a monster storm blow through last night, and it is still snowing hard with a steady 30 plus mph wind out of the west northwest. Intermittent power outages, but again, we are safe and warm. I am posting this with my cell phone to keep my desktop from having a abrupt power loss that could... Sign in to see full entry.

The winds finally slowed down enough for the village to restore power last night. We weren't fretting any of the dark time and actually found it pleasant. We could hear the winds howling like a mad wolf pack outside, and we were able to just sit on the couch together, hold hands, and talk like we... Sign in to see full entry.

Moving Update and the Story Continues

Holy crow! It is snowing like crazy outside. I haven't opened the door yet, but looking out the window, I can see that at least ten inches of new snow are covering the car. I was going to go over to the Soo, but I suspect that may not be prudent. As I see that Lisa told you last night, my brother is... Sign in to see full entry.

Another cold day of 'wait and see' here. I have a lot of patience, but this is getting ridiculous. I had no intention of seeing snow this year, let alone the ten inches I currently have in the backyard. I'm doing my best to stay calm to keep my wife calm, but the game is getting harder to play by... Sign in to see full entry.

My wife is sleeping, and all three of the dogs are laying beside her. My God, she is so beautiful, even if she snores like a chain saw. Lol I really love her. I'm watching reruns of ER on Hulu, and there are many scenes that invoke some intense emotions as I recall my medic days and my ER days. As... Sign in to see full entry.

Another day with no moving date in sight. Michael, the guy trying to buy this place, is still in the hospital with COVID. I'm getting more and more concerned about this situation, and I am afraid we are going to be faced with some difficult decisions very quickly. We either spend another winter here...

A Southern Update and More Story

It is cold here, but then again, it is now December. My brother continues to send me updates on our house and its neighborhood. Before he got there, Jerry was looking for something 'down south,' but as he wandered the town, he now thinks he might attempt to find a place near ours. It's weird to say,...

Things My Father Taught Me: The best revenge is to live well, and don't let the hate and indifference get to you. It's too easy to forget that life is short and quite brittle. The world cries out for peace, love, and understanding, but everyone is caught up in their own dramas. Step back, take a... Sign in to see full entry.
