The weather seems weird everywhere, here too. Normally January through March or April is clear weather with no significant features. Sunny and clear every day. Now we’re getting front after front, rain and wind and waves.
I didn’t realize that tropical storms were a rarity in the South Atlantic. I just knew southern hemisphere seasons are opposite than the northern hemisphere’s.
Our Nor’Easter continues , there was quite a lot of damage to the waterfront. It reminds me of Hurricane Michelle, which, from far away, sent huge waves that broke open the turtle farm and put a big wave through my apartment in 2001.
Above is a picture I took of Don Foster’s Dive Center. The waves were regularly hitting the porch (on the left) while I was there. The porch itself was full of sand and the furniture was missing or broken.
I’m sure there will be more pictures coming out today
Hurricane Michelle did $28 million in damage, I’m sure this will compare. And this nor’easter is pummeling us for a longer period of time.
Daisy has been really good at her no barking training.. I decided to leave her out of her kennel while I went out last night.
I came home to a little dog party. Lenny was on the sofa, (not allowed) and Daisy was on hyperdrive, bouncing around like a madwoman in a pinball machine. Lenny just wants to be rebel badass and impress Daisy. The worst he can think of is getting on the couch.
Apparently, this newfound freedom caused Daisy forget she’s not supposed to bark in the house and her barking kept me up again.
All training forgotten in an instant.
I’m the one who has to stop thinking the dogs have learned or changed and stop cutting them slack. I’ve done it before and always tell myself not to do it again.
Oh well, they’re good dogs, They just need to be “managed”.
Cold, cloudy and windy here today. The temperature probably won’t even reach 80⁰.
I have a friend in Grand Forks North Dakota USA. It’s mighty cold up there.. Of course, you can’t tell how cold with any internet weather sites. They don’t specify the scale they’re using. How unprofessional! How unscientific! Is it Kelvin? It it Centigrade? Who can tell?
its either -7⁰ or 19⁰ or 266⁰ but it might be -7⁰ or 14⁰ or 251⁰, perhaps -7⁰ or -251⁰ or -472⁰. Who can tell? They might be using any temperature scale. Nowhere does it specify the scale being used. The information is therefore worthless.
It was a nice weekend. I went diving yesterday. Friday afternoon I went to a first night of Chanukah event. On Saturday I went to the Small Business Market. It was quite nice. I imagine myself doing something similar with wood.. Make something I could sell…
Here it’s been raining all night and it continues to pour. I didn’t see it coming!
Travlin’ Tim took a trip down to DC and took in the sights. Then we went to the boat parade down at the Wharf in DC. Technically, the Potomac River. We had good food and there were some very good bands playing music.
It was in the 50s, temperature wise. Very warm for this time of year in this area..
Tomorrow is my last full day here, Tuesday I head home.
