High of 53, low of 47 today. Rain from this evening until Tuesday so we will probably not get started on building the high tunnel tomorrow. Flooding predicted so it may be too muddy to work on it at all until the ground freezes. We'll see.

A lesson on fishing in church this morning from a pastor who grew up in the fishing community of Rock Hall, Md. Now we take Lucky, the buck, home. Hopefully he has impregnated our does and we'll have lots of kids this spring. I'll miss the big guy.

Have a great Sunday.

High today: 47F. More rain in the forecast for this afternoon, but we have a break this morning. Another study day, plus laundry. The weekends feel shorter and shorter.

Happy Sunday!

Back home after 4 days on the road. Looks like a rainy day today and I'll be spending most of it getting ready for the week ahead. I'll go to the fitness center after it opens at 1:00. We begin a search for a new department chair with a dinner tonight so the healthy eating challenges continue.

Wrapped things up at the convention this morning. Nothing really controversial so we finished in record time (at least for as long as I have been attending). Used the extra time to get in a nice long walk before spending 6 hours in the car. The trip ended up a success in the fitness column as well. Kept my food intake under control and got in my exercise every day. Looks like rain tomorrow so I'll stay inside and catch up on some budget issues.

The lake level is 7.8 feet this morning. Last year it peaked at 7.93 in March near the end of the rainy season. More rain is expected today starting late afternoon and going through Tuesday. I'm sure the lake will continue to rise. The wind is blowing today, indicating the storm's approach.

On deck for today: study, study, study! Also installing new printer and a quick shopping trip. And more studying.

Cloudy, foggy, and 46F / 8C, heading to the mid 50's. Nor'easter coming this way on Sunday!

On tap for today: waking up to NO alarm (YEA!), breakfast, digging up documents for DW, long run (aiming for 8 miles today), house cleaning, and pick up birthday treat for our male greyhound Tomas -- he turned 12 today! Tonight: DW is feeling better so we'll do a HelloFresh meal. Likely the steak dinner!

Have a great Saturday gents!

Warm and cloudy this morning, 67F should be clearing with a high in mid 70s. Cooling down tonight.

By the way Dean, in my home town chasing chickens was a kind of entertainment see: "courir de Mardi Gras" (Mardi Gras run)

Typical Saturday, a little yoga, back and core exercises, and elliptical bike. May go for a short walk if my back feels up to it.

It's Saturday enjoy you weekend.

Another good day at the convention. More good, valuable sessions and a good business meeting. Got a good nights sleep and got an early start on the elliptical and plenty of walking again. Started off with a good breakfast and managed to keep on target with my meals.

Weather in the high 30s, 40s and even low 50s until next Tuesday. Rain today and again Sunday.

Drove across the Chesapeake for the monthly poker game last night but not, thankfully, into DC, so I am dragging a bit this morning. We're having a new water treatment system installed so the basement is full of plumbers. I spent a bit of time chasing chickens with a net this morning but they are quicker than me.

Have a good Friday.

We're still enjoying a false spring in the Houston area. 60F with fog this morning. expecting clear skies with a high in the low 70s.

Physical therapy this morning, some time on the stationary bike and maybe a short walk today. back is improving but ready for anything more than a short walk. Got a free movie pass to see XXX--so I'll catch a movie.

It's Inauguration day - I think I'll skip the parade. TGI Friday guys!!

Today's high is expected to be 46F, with more rain today and through the weekend.

Today's "Daily Opinion" article from the editorial board at the New York Times had a link to a YouTube video of the original recording of this song, but to the right was a link to an arrangement from 40 years later (but still 30 years ago) that I liked just a bit better.

Cloudy / Foggy / Misty and 35F / 2C, heading to the upper 40's with rain moving in.

On tap for today: AM yoga at the Y (60 minutes of bliss!), breakfast, work, grocery store run, work, and bowling practice. Tonight: DW still not feeling 100% when she left for work so it will depend how she is feeling later on. I'm sure we won't go out -- just if she feels up to one of our HelloFresh dinners.

TGIF gents!

Another late check-in but better late than never. A busy day at the NCAA convention. Some excellent panels on student health and wellness and sexual assault prevention. Tried to go out for a walk during lunch but heavy rains rolled in. Still, a good morning workout on the dreadmill and lots of walking to get around inside Opryland so I got plenty of exercise today. Trying to get to bet earlier so I can get up early to beat the rush for the fitness center.

Partly sunny and a pleasant 47F / 8C (for January anyway), heading to the mid 50's.

On tap for today: AM yoga here at home, breakfast just for me -- DW is home ill with a stomach bug -- work, run, and more work. Tonight: It would have been a HelloFresh night, but assuming DW is still not feeling well, may have to fend for myself.

Have a great Thursday gents!

It rained briefly this morning, but today is going to be lighter in precipitation than yesterday. We've had over 2" in the past 24 hours, with more to come through Tuesday now. Today's high: 49F.

Tonight's faculty meeting is closer to home, but we're getting everyone excited about the new semester. I'm looking forward to seeing everyone back on campus again!

Have a great Thursday...

First day of classes yesterday was not much fun with lots of meetings (budget problems - yuck) and lot's of students with problems to deal with. Today was better but I was so far behind from yesterday that I almost didn't get everything ready for class. Seems like a good group of students so this should be a fun semester. Most importantly, I still got up early and got to the fitness center to get in my workout! One solid week of good fitness activity and eating better. This afternoon I head to Nashville for the NCAA convention. Should be fun but lot's of temptations so I had better be on my game.

We too have rain coming - expecting 2.7" today according to the forecast. High of 46F.

Heading to the Colusa campus today. Working during the day, faculty meeting at 5pm with dinner. Leave there around 7pm, home by 8:30pm. Long day, but it should be good. I repeat the same thing tomorrow at our local Lake County campus. Classes start Monday.

My grad school classes started officially yesterday. The three classes look interesting and manageable.

37F at 6:45 am in Shelby Twp., but the sidewalks are still icy - should get to an afternoon high of 41 F. That should melt the ice completely away.

Looking at my food diary ("nutrition tracking") I was stunned to see that last night I ate more calories in snacks than at dinner. I can also see that I weigh about 10 pounds more now than before Thanksgiving. Part is the holidays. Part is living now in SF and needing a more active routine. Things to do...

The latest forecast shows up to 2" of rain possible for tomorrow. Today's high just 51F.

Back to work today. Head still a little stuffy from the cold I had a week ago. Time to forge ahead. The new semester starts Monday!

I didn't have to put on a coat when I did my chores this morning. My hoodie did fine. It rained overnight and is supposed to rain throughout the day starting late morning. High here on the bay side of the Delmarva will be 51 today and it is supposed to stay in the 40s overnight.

Today I plan to put in the conduit and boxes for the heated floor I'm putting in our bathroom. I can't put in the shower until the plumber installs our new water treatment system. I don't want whatever is in our water to mess up the new fixtures.

Have a great Tuesday.

65F and cloudy at 5AM. Expecting 75F and showers today.

Finished an early morning ride on my trusty Airdyne stationary bike. First time breaking a sweat while exercising since I injured my back. Still have a few weeks left of PT before I'm get back on the road again.

It's Tuesday, make it a good one!

A little hazy start to the day but normal temps with a high in the low 40s. The Spring semester begins today. I teach lab classes on Tuesdays and Thursdays but this semester we won't start until Thursday so it will be after the first classroom class on Wednesday. Today will just be a bunch of meetings instead (joy!). Tomorrow I head to Nashville for the NCAA convention (my teaching assistants will take care of the first lab class) so that will be my first challenge to my new focus on fitness.

A little late checking in today. Had an early start to the day for our annual MLK day of service. Had a great morning working with a wonderful group of students helping clean up and organize a local business/organization for women. This is a great way to start the semester - getting to know more students outside the classroom, getting to learn about some of the great services available in our community and all done in honor of a great American hero.

It feels like springtime in Southeast, Texas. 65F with a few cloud and light breeze. Warming up tom mid to high 70. It may rain tonight.

Physical therapy on the old back this morning, recovering slowly but recovering just the same. Neurologist wants to discuss surgery options and outcomes based on MRI . . . . considering.

Spending time with two grandsons today -- my opportunity to watch an animated movie!!
Have a great MLK Day

Patrick, one of these days I'm expecting to see you and Sharron on an episode of Beachfront Bargain Hunt, shopping for your island paradise dream home!

Today's high is forecast at 61F, but the days have been chillier than predicted the past couple days. It should be mostly clear today and sunny, with a big rainstorm heading our way for Wednesday. Fingers crossed.

Campus is closed today, but my Spring semester grad school classes start today. I'm taking advantage of the day off to get caught up with my studies. That's a good thing, because the next three nights are taken up with other activities.

Enjoy the day, gentlemen.

Good to hear from you, Steve. Glad you are well.

Temp went down to 28 this morning. Frost was on the ground when I tended the animals. It is above freezing now and will go up to 44 or so and not be below freezing again until next Sunday.

Working on our bathroom this morning. This afternoon I'll attend an MLK event in Delaware. I was asked to participate by leading a discussion but suggested somebody local should do that. I did agree to attend and help the leaders evaluate.

Have a good MLK Day.

Great to see you back Steve. Happy you are safe and sound. Dennis, I bet you wish you were back in Tucson! We are less than two months from a return trip to Jamaica! Can't get here fast enough!

Today here on the eastern part of the Delmarva, mostly sunny and 32F / 0C, heading to the low 40's. Rain moving in tonight.

On tap for today: No alarm -- DW is off today -- so I was more then happy to wake up when my body said it was time -- which was 7:15AM! Made breakfast, fed the puppies, took them for a walk, and now working. Strength training at the Y, and more work. Tonight: HelloFresh. We have shrimp coming so that is what we'll be making tonight (Lemony Shrimp Risotto).

Have a good work week gents!

Good Sunday morning, guys - sorry I've been AWOL lately. The requirements of a seasonal 5% challenge forced me to cut back on my other teams. That challenge has ended, and I've got time to check in with you all again.

We've got a lull between storms. Today's high 58F. More rain coming on Wednesday, according to the forecast. We are already well above our seasonal rainfall for the year so far, but it's great that more is coming, especially if it also drops some snow up in the Sierras for the spring runoff.

Laundry day today, then having dinner and drinks with our friends Alex and Slava. I'm off tomorrow, and starting the new semester of my grad school classes. Next week will be busy at work, so I'm grateful for another day off to catch up on other tasks.

Have a good one!

Warming up a little so the freezing rain has changed to rain. Beautiful ice on the trees and (knock on wood) no power outages. The roads look good so should be able to get in to the office and lab to get things ready for the new semester. Tomorrow I am supposed to be doing a service project for MLK day of service but we got an e-mail that it might be cancelled due to the weather. It is always a great event and a nice way to interact with students outside the classroom so, hopefully, it will still be on.

32 degrees just before daybreak here on the western shore of the Delmarva Penninsula. It will go up into the low 40s today and then down to 29 overnight. The rest of the week should be above freezing, which makes my life easier since I need to provide water for our animals every day.

We attended a great 2-day conference at UMd sponsored by the Chesapeake Area Sustainable Agriculture/Future Harvest folk. It required 11/2 commute each way both days but I survived it. Lots of ideas. We'll be trying to learn more about the bionutirent food movement as part of our efforts to raise healthy vegetables.

Have a good Sunday!

Cloudy with some occasional sleet this morning, 35F / 2C, climbing a few more degrees. Chance of wintery mix throughout the day and into the evening.

On tap for today: breakfast, work (yes i did not get everything done during the week, so with it being a not so nice day, I'm going to try to make a dent!), clean office, and watch some football. I normally run on Saturdays but it is supposed to be much nicer tomorrow (44F and sunny!) so I'm going move my running day this weekend. And with tomorrow's football games being late, it will work out nicely! Tonight: HelloFresh burgers and watch football with DW. She is a Cowboys fan so she is stoked!

Have a great Saturday gents!

63F this morning and very foggy. It'll be cloudy all day with a high in the mid 70s. Rain tonight and tomorrow.

Nothing special on tap today--therapeutic exercises for shoulder and back - Watching football this afternoon.

Hope the weather improves for you guys affected by the freezing weather and ice storms. Take care.

Ice storms continue. I'm scheduled to meet with some prospective students later this morning but I'm assuming everything is cancelled because the roads are still looking pretty bad. Just plan to stay home and continue to prepare materials for the new semester. That will mean another day on the dreadmill but I'm OK with that.

Time to get back to checking in daily. Weekly check ins made it too easy to stop altogether and I really need some accountability now.

Major ice storm today. Doesn't look too bad out the window but I'm not going to risk it. Campus is closed today so all my meetings and other appointments are cancelled. Hopefully, all the students will heed the warning and wait to move back in after the this passes. Good day to catch up on preparing for the semester to start next week. Definitely a dreadmill day today.

At midnight it was 62F and the temp has been slowly dropping since. Currently it's 51F / 11C. Just looked at the forecast for Saturday -- wintery mix! UGGGH! Hopefully no ice!

On tap for today: AM yoga at the Y, quick stop at the grocery store to get a birthday card / gift card for DD #1, breakfast, work, return to the grocery store to get rest of what we need, and bowling practice. Tonight FINALLY going to have the leftover Italian! We went out for Japanese last night (sashimi for me!).

TGIF gents!

Missing the first race of the year this weekend. it won't be the last one. I probably will not run again until March or April.

Hey Mitch, the therapist have given me some yoga moves for strengthened my lower back!!

Have a great Friday the 13th!!
