Fun In The Snow

Posted on/at 6:50 PM by Sparky


Well at least my kids enjoyed the snow, this is my oldest boy on his snowboard wiping out. It was nice to see all this snow but I will be happy to be home.










Here he is after the wipe out. reminds me of all the fun we used to have as kids in the snow.
At least we all had fun in the snow. We had a really good time this Thanksgiving, hope everyone else did as well.

Winter Setting In

One thing I do miss about being in upstate NY is the snow in the woods, I love the outdoors and walking in the woods. I just hate having to drive in snow.

Have a Good Thanksgiving

Posted on/at 5:50 PM by Sparky


well we arrived in NY this morning, thank god most of the snow has melted as it was a little warmer than it has been according to my family. On our way up we had a good laugh it is about 340 miles, well we had some guy fly by us early on this morning, I by no means can say I obey the speed to the exact number usually within 5 MPH or so, well we ran across the guy pretty soon after this while he was waiting for a PA trooper. My wife made some comment on him deserving this due to the fact he was going so fast. We continue on our journey and about 2 hours later ZOOM same guy flies by us yet again, huh must be he didn't learn anything from his earlier experience, well about 10 minutes later there he is yet again on the side of the road with a NY trooper this time. all i have to say is he didn't save himself any time for all the aggravation he got. Drive safe everyone.




The snow is pretty on all the tree's.






















Here is a nearby lake.

Snow For The Holidays

Posted on/at 6:33 PM by Sparky



I got another email from upstate NY today from my folks. We are going up for Thanksgiving and I suppose they want us to see what we are in for. Oh well I can handle it for a few days I did for 30 years before moving south.

My wife hates snow so I am pretty sure she will be miserable the whole time.

Freaky Looking

Posted on/at 7:17 PM by Sparky


I received this picture in an email today and my first though was that of a low budget scary movie, kind of like the ones that used to be on Sunday's back in the 70's Eivom i think it was called, movie backwards, but they were always sort of low class movies like the blob and stuff. WOW does that ever make me feel old. Then we got cable just about the time I moved out of the house to take on the world on my own, Huh a thought just hit me, that might have been planned. Now that I am older and wiser It almost reminds me of things me and my wife do. Back to the picture I sure would like to know what all those cats are so interested in?

MOre Snow

Posted on/at 5:23 PM by Sparky


Today I got an update on the weather in upstate NY, this is what the roads are looking like at my mom and dad's house. We are going up on Wednesday, how lucky we are. It's been a few years since I have seen a good snowfall so I actually hope it snows while we are up there. I miss the appearance of the snow just not the driving in it or the cold.
