My version of snow

My townhome is in a small development with lots of oak trees - I love the trees and the birds and squirrels that they shelter, but this year, the leaves have been particularly heavy.  Our poor yard maintenance man gets everything all cleaned up, just in time for another gust of wind and more leaves.  Today we decided it was our version of snow - just a little easier to shovel.

Strange Weather

Been way too hot for a Florida winter - wishing the best for the folks about to get blasted with Winter Storm Nemo - come to Florida if you can.

Quoth the Raven ....

Strange Super Bowl game - I thought the Dodge Ram commercial based on Paul Harvey's 1979 speech "So God Made a Farmer" was the best part of the whole thing, and by far the best commercial.  I'm reading a really good series by Kerry Greenwood - she has such command of the language.  One of the phrases uttered by her protagonist, Phyrne Fisher, fits Ray Lewis to a tee:  "self-centered as a gyroscope."
