Where I’m looking.


The view from the front window this morning. I regret I couldn’t quite capture the fat-fluffy-flakes sense of how hard it’s snowing, but you get the idea. Spring, nearly, in the Mitten.

    Is more of this snow crap heading our way? I shudder to look at the national weather map. We got pounded Friday, with a foot of snow, forcing the cancellation of our hamlet’s St. Patrick’s Parade (the 5K Shamrock Scramble, however, was run by a few hardy souls, including half-a-dozen hard-core guys from the newspaper). I entertained them with Guinness, crabmeat quiche, soda bread and bangers (sausages to the uninitiated).

    Enough, already!

    hahahahaha!!! Good ol’ Fort Wayne has entirely missed out on this latest bit of weather – and that’s just fine. For the past several days, I keep seeing in the news all these flight cancellations and so on – and our weather has been, in a word, beautiful! Sunny, blue skies, breezey…granted it’s rainy today, but you don’t have to shovel rain.

    In fact this past weekend we loaded up and went to Indy, there to see the Doodlebops at the Murat Theater downtown. Coming through the historic North Side if Indianapolis, I bored the kids by stopping to see the beautiful old home of President Benjamin Harrison (on Delaware Avenue), and the Butler home off of 13th… but I failed to plan ahead, and the homes weren’t open for tours – so I contented myself with a walkaround and plaque-reading

    Adrianne – we went up to Norfolk VA this weekend to see our daughter cross the finish line for the Shamrock Marathon. She ran the half marathon (13.1 miles for anyone who is not hip to this – which means me). The weather was very cold and windy – and they ran along the boardwalk for a portion of the race! We shivered for nearly an hour (dumbass me forgot to pack hats or gloves, even though I knew it would be cold), but it was exhilirating to see those runners go by. They are a different breed, for sure.

    You don’t have to shovel this snow, either. Shortly after that picture was taken, the temperature went up to 40 and most of it melted. It’s still on the grass, but the driveway/sidewalks are clear.

    Sorry, but I liked the pictures I got to take better.

    When I lived in Idaho, it got down to 20 every night, and 40 during the day. So we drove on ice constantly. Yecchhh.

    This was Super Sunday, the biggest event on the Mardi Gras Indians’ calendar.
