Quote of the week: “Life’s most persistent and urgent question is, ‘What are you doing for others?’ ” – Martin Luther King Jr.


I was very surprised that it snowed again Sunday, as I’m sure many others were surprised as well. I thought if it didn’t snow Saturday, then the weather was in the clear.

It was one of Mother Nature’s “gotchas.” She sure fooled everyone. She’s tricky most of the time. In addition to snow, there was ice. Like snow, ice is not my friend either. I’ve slipped so many times on ice. I’m ready for summer.

The cold plus the wind makes staying in look like a comfortable choice. I wish it wasn’t so cold out to see the lunar eclipse Sunday night. The moon also was a super moon.

The internet dubbed it as a “super blood wolf moon.” With just seeing pictures online, I think the name fits it accurately. Besides snow and ice, the only other element that makes winter unbearable is the wind.

It sounded like wolves were howling the other day, but it was just the wind. Main Street was noisy with 26 mph winds. I thought I was going to see Dorothy fly by or some type of ghost come out of the woodwork. With the upcoming forecast, it doesn’t look like the howlings will end soon.

The sun will somewhat shine Thursday with a high of 33 degrees, according to the National Weather Service. There is expected 5 to 11 mph winds with gusts as high as 23 mph. Friday also will be partly sunny with a high of 29 degrees. There is a 50 percent chance of snow on Saturday, with a high of 31 degrees.

I’m excited for the sun. We haven’t seen the sun in what seems like a long time. Have I mentioned that I’m ready for summer?
