It has been cold here in Denver over the past week. Real cold. The photo above was taken last Monday. The temperature that morning was negative 19 degrees Fahrenheit. That’s real cold in my book. It is supposed to snow again today, which is too bad, because I really need to clean those windows.
It has been quite a winter everywhere in the states. These
frozen waves on Lake Huron look like gigantic slabs of blue salmon.
Michigan has had the coldest winter in decades. Water expands to freeze, and at Macinaw City the water in Lake Huron below the surface ice was supercooled. It expanded to break through the surface ice and froze into this incredible wave.
UPDATE: Duped Again.
When I woke up this morning the air inside my bedroom, outside of the warm cocoon of my covers, was cold and brisk. It was snowing outside and I had left my window open a few inches throughout the night. Now it’s snowing like crazy so I have decided not to go into the mountains and to come in and work in the office for a while and spend the day reading books and watching movies.
I spent a couple of hours last night trying to implement some new ideas for my blog and ended up messing things up and practically having to rebuild the bitch. It sucked but I’m learning stuff all the time. What good learning any of this will do me, however, will probably never be found out.
My mind kept me up till 2:30 last night because it was unable to shut down. It was racing with ways to improve my life. Ways to get more satisfaction from the things I’m already doing. And new things that will help. Ideas. Developments. Systems and simplifications, and the complications caused by them. But in the end, really, I came up with noting too profound. Nothing I haven’t thought about a million times before. I’m generally very happy and high-spirited. It’s a matter of breaking habits and starting new ones.
So now I sit here in my office, trying to finish up a few things work and otherwise. A warm cup oatmeal, hot mug of coffee, and tall glass of ice water in front of me. And you.
I guess I was right not to let that spring fever set in. It’s dumping here in Denver. Work was canceled today and may be again tomorrow. They are expecting two feet in some areas. Keep your fingers crossed.
