Another day in the mid 60s here in Northern California. Definitely the mildest winter I can recall. It is supposed to be in the high 70s up at the lake this weekend. Time to break out the shorts and sandals!

Lunch with an old friend today, and choir practice at church this evening. That will keep me from feeling down after yesterday's doctor visit.

Have a great day!

Cloudy and 28F / -2C, heading to the mid 30's with snow / wintery mix moving in later on.

With the snow / wintery mix not scheduled to move in until later this afternoon, plus light winds, I may run outside today -- first time in nearly a month! It is March after all...

I have one meeting this afternoon, then league bowling tonight.

Have a terrific Tuesday gents!

In the 30's today. Warmed up 10 degrees from yesterday and I noticed the improvement. Snow forecasted within a few days, so I hope they are off again on that prediction.

The forecasters can't agree on what today will bring. It looked like rain early this morning, but now the sun is shining. We could use the moisture! Highs should be mid-60s or better.

I have an appointment with a new orthopedist this afternoon. It will probably be my last follow-up after the accident. Today marks 10 months since I was hit by a car while riding my bicycle to work, changing my life in many ways (all good!).

Workout, grocery shopping, and a couple other errands also on the docket for today. Better get moving!

Have a great day, team!

Overcast but clearing, 33F / 1C, heading to the upper 30's. Recovering from a mild ice storm yesterday.

Already been out to scrape the driveway -- about 1/4" of ice. I put down some melt yesterday and that made my job much easier. Will still head to the Y at lunchtime. Tonight: Chicken parm dinner (purchased from Sam's Club yesterday).

Have a good work week gents!

Happy March, gents!

It's 50F and sunny at the lake, with an expected high in the mid 60s. Heading back to Sacramento today, where the high is forecast for about 70. Looking forward to a nice long walk when we get home.

Cloudy, 25F / -4C, heading towards the freezing mark with a wintery mix moving in later on.

Lots to do today -- heading out for a solo breakfast (DW is meeting friends), shopping, racking wine, and some much needed cleaning in my office.

Have a great Sunday gents!

It's a cool (for us anyway) 40 degrees F. Heading out to some local wineries for tasting, still trying to figure out what to do for dinner. There's a seafood boil at the local Senior Center put on by the Rotary. Many of our friends will be there, but Steve doesn't eat seafood, so that's out. Still, we're making it a great Saturday!

A light overcast, 21F / -6C, wind chill at 8F, heading to the mid 20's. There is talk of a pattern change and a move to somewhat warmer temps. Can't get here fast enough!

Heading to the Y shortly for some speed interval run training (6x800m), then this afternoon out to our favorite local winery to pick up our wine club bottles for this month and do some tasting. Tonight: Good question!

Have a great Saturday gents!

Day started out cloudy but the sun is trying to make an appearance. 29F / -2C right, should be our high for the day.

Busy morning, got to the Y for a lunchtime workout, debating if I am going to the bowling alley for practice later on. Skin on my thumb is cracked from the cold and dry weather and 3 games of bowling is only going to aggravate it. Would prefer to give it a rest, keep applying lotion to heal the crack, and be all ready for league play next Tuesday.

Tonight: Willing to be we go out for dinner. Thinking Mexican...

TGIF gents!!

We got up to the lake around noon and had lunch out in the sun room. The sun is shining brightly over the water, making the waves sparkle. It's about 72 today. Waiting for one of the roofers to come over with an estimate. Everyone here operates on "lake time," so it's tough to try to schedule anything.

But boy is it beautiful!

Snowing and 28F / -2C. Should end shortly but temp will stay steady. Looks like we got 2 inches or so.

Busy day already -- yoga, cooked breakfast, goatee darkened, now on a webinar. Dr appointment this afternoon, then run at the YMCA. Tonight: leftovers!

Have a great Thursday gents!

I'd love to join you for dinner, Mitch! That sounds delicious!

It's currently 47F, highs in the mid 60s. Looking forward to spending some time in the sun today.

I had my weigh-in today, and I'm officially down 25 pounds since I started SP in November. I couldn't have asked for a better program or better support. Just 11 pounds to my goal!

Those temps in FL sound great Dennis!!

Here on the Delmarva, it is 24F / -4C, heading toward the upper 30's. Snow moving in tonight.

Just got back from a much needed chiropractor appointment and picking up a breakfast sandwich. A handful of meetings, plenty of other tasks to work on in between. Tonight: A much needed spa pedicure and take out from our favorite Italian restaurant (Calamari Fra Diavolo, I'm coming to get you!!).

It actually got down into the 30's overnight, but we'll reach our season-normal high of 65 by mid-afternoon. Great weather for being outside.

Our buyers are touring the house today with our real estate agent, and they scheduled their home inspection for the same time. I'm heading over to my folks for lunch during the showing, and can catch up on all the news from their trip to see family in Florida.

Happy Tuesday!

Sunny but very chilly! 14F / -10C, wind chill at 6F / -14C, heading to the mid 20's. We'll pretty much be in the freezer for the rest of this week but things are looking up (warmer) for the 1st week of March.

No meetings today. Plenty of work stuff to do. Tonight: league bowling.

Have a terrific Tuesday gents!

Happy Monday! It's cooling down here - the high is only going to be in the low 60s. (Sorry.)

We have another showing of the house this morning, so I'm doing an early workout and quick house cleaning before grabbing the dogs and taking them for a morning walk. Our agent is putting off submitting our acceptance of the offer from Friday for this agent this morning - we might get a second offer to go into a competitive situation. The first buyers still have not seen the house - they are coming for a showing tomorrow at noon.

My niece and her husband just informed me that they booked flights to Italy for April and want me to see if I can get them a place to stay through our timeshare. I've invited them to come over to look at options. I sure wish they had come to me first before booking their flights.

My stress level is a little higher than I'd like it today. I woke up at 4am and couldn't go back to sleep. Finally got out of bed at 4:45.

Just call me Grumpy Gus.

Cloudy, 33F / 1C, we've already hit out high of 36F just after midnight, with temps dropping throughout the day and the winds picking up. It was nice to have 2 days of above freezing temps over the weekend.

Busy day ahead. Early trip to the Y, webinar over lunch, a meeting this afternoon. Tonight: unsure at this point. If the winds pick up as forecast, I am betting it'll takeout for dinner.

Have a good work week gents!

We've had wind gusts all night and morning. I ran out at 11pm last night to stack the plastic Adirondack chairs on the deck, because they were going to blow off for sure. Today we've been hanging pictures and rearranging furniture in the new house. We head back to Sacramento this afternoon at about 2pm, meeting with our real estate agent at 4pm right at the end of the open house. We have an offer that we're accepting, and we'll sign on the papers.

Then we're off to friends for an Oscar party and to watch all the beautiful people on the television.

Shoveled snow early yesterday. Talking to my neighbor, we thought that was it. We got hit last night and early morning while we were still in our beds. Very heavy snow. Feels better to be done than starting for sure.

Sunny and 36F/ 2C, heading to around 40F. Got about an inch of snow before rain arrived yesterday.

On tap for today: various chores around the house, heading outside to shovel off some snow off the driveway. Tonight: Not sure what we are doing for dinner just yet.

Have a great Sunday gents!!

59F, with mostly clear skies at 7 am in Venice, FL, headed to a high of 74 later in the day - nice day to walk the beach and do a Tiki Bar inspection.

I feel guilty saying that we had temps around 75F today in Clearlake. Sunny and gorgeous. The trees are all in bloom, many of which usually don't bud out until April. We went for a great walk up in the hills by the lake, with spectacular views to entertain us and keep us motivated. I'm sorry for all of you in the midwest dealing with cold and snow. I don't envy you at all!

We received last night has anticipated. A light dusting though. Maybe more snow to come, but this wasn't as bad as thought. Had fun shoveling it as it wasn't a lot of it.

Cloudy and a relatively balmy 18F / -8C (at least compared to temps earlier in the week), heading to the mid 30's, first time above freezing in a week, but with a wintery mix moving in.

Today's big task: 14 mile run, which will be inside due to the temps and the road conditions. After I get back from that and recover, vacuuming and making dinner (probably Italian).

Have a great Saturday gents!

It was a beautiful 70 degrees in Clearlake, CA. We were interrupted on our walk this afternoon by a neighbor offering margaritas. What a great start to the weekend!

Sunny and finally the wind is starting to let up. Still a frigid 3F / -16C, with wind chill at -14F / -26C, heading just to the mid teens today. We're not getting the gust winds we have had over the past 24 hours now -- just a steady west wind at 12 mph!

Handyman stopped by to look at my water softener discharge pipe and decided best course of action is to fix the break and insulate the pipe. Works for me!

No meetings today but plenty to work on. Usual lunchtime strength training session at the Y and mid afternoon trip to the bowling alley for practice. Tonight: we do Mexican leftovers! Opted to get take out last night from one of our favorite restaurants. I had a ahi tuna salad cooked rare and shared their homemade potato chips. Heavenly!

TGIF gents!

The sun is out. And that is about the only good news to report about the weather here on the Delmarva. Air temp is 13F / -11C, wind chill is -4F / -20C!! Air temp may climb close to 20F, but wind chills likely to be around 0F most of the day.

Had one small issue related to the cold temps -- discovered my discharge pipe from my water softener to outside has frozen up, so there was a little bit of water in the basement in the utility room. Softener just recycled overnight, so it won't do it again for a few days. My handyman will be out tomorrow to come up with a solution, which likely will be to run the discharge into the sump pump.

Quiet work day ahead. Got my formal education stuff done yesterday in working on my PM recert package. Need to document my informal education today. Today's training run is another speed run, perfect for treadmill running inside at the Y.

Tonight: Leftovers!!

Have a great Thursday gents!

Mostly sunny and 15F / -9C, wind chill at 7F, heading to the upper 20's. Maybe a passing snow shower during the day. Colder arctic air moving in overnight!

One important meeting this morning, workout at the Y, then starting a class that I need to regain my PM certification internally. Tonight: probably our Mexican food leftovers. We'll go out on Thursday, assuming it is not too cold outside (it'll be in the teens so it'll be up to DW).

Happy hump day gents!!
