Hoping For Some Thundersnow Here In Lancaster County!

Feb 20, 2019 - 1 minutes
As foretasted for a few days now It’s snowing heavily this morning. It was one of the nice storms that didn’t start out as hours of virga. It was more less from nothing to moderate snow and started laying immediately. Really though it’s a wasted snow storm like most this year where it’ll change to ice then rain but you gotta take what you can get. Not every year can be really well performing winters like the past few have been. Read more ...

Milk, Bread and Eggs

Feb 19, 2019 - 1 minutes
I’ve always been curies as to why every time it snows people feel the need to go to the store and buy milk and eggs and bread. Why these items and not something that won’t spoil if you were to lose power. The part I always laugh at is even in the worst storms in most of the world things will be back to normal within a day or two. Even if you can’t drive someplace most people could (gasp) walk to get what they may need. Read more ...

Snow To Ice To Rain

Feb 19, 2019 - 1 minutes
It seems around presidents day we’ve had a few of our biggest snow storms. There’s still enough cold air readily available and a bit more energy available as spring is approaching. This year we’ll have a storm that starts with heavy snow with a few inches of it accumulating. That will change to sleet then freezing rain as warmer air works in aloft first. That seems to be the way things are going with every storm this year. Read more ...

Portable Music Player

Feb 18, 2019 - 2 minutes
I have been looking off and on for the past few months for a portable music player since my Creative Zen hasn’t charged in quite a while. It needs to have a decently sized screen so that I’m able to see it. Molly’s Fiio m7 has text that’s just too small to see. It needs to support lossless formats. Particularly flac since I have everything ripped to that format so we can store the cds away. Read more ...

Listening To The Snow and Ice Melting

Feb 13, 2019 - 1 minutes
The past two days we’ve had snow then a mix and then rain. Really yesterday was mostly sleet and freezing rain. until the afternoon then it got above freezing and has been since. It was nothing major. A few inches of snow and sleet then a pretty think coating of ice on the trees and other untreated surfaces. If this setup had occurred in January it would have been a big mess because the cold air damming was holding strong yesterday. Read more ...

Debating On Signing Up For Crossfit Open

Feb 12, 2019 - 3 minutes
Most years since I’ve done crossfit I’ve signed up for the open. Not to win or qualify for anything but to push myself out of my own confort zone. Last year I did not sign up because I’d been out of thyroid meds and between doctors so my cardio was a steaming pile of shit in the beginning. I did do the wods but didn’t think I should push myself too much having not done a lot of fitness related things for a couple months other than pure strength work. Read more ...

I Don't Want Tons Of Spam

Feb 11, 2019 - 1 minutes
I don’t check my email too often because of the insane amount of spam I get. It’s pretty annoying to have to look through it to find the one important email. It seems like every time I do I get more spam from a legit company that I do buy service from. This time it’s Netflix I’m bitching about. I didn’t sign up or request to be on 5 different mailing list plus have my contact information shared. Read more ...

Robert Frost

Feb 11, 2019 - 1 minutes
Dark snowy days like today always make me think of This Robert Frost poem. Honestly Robert Frost is probably my favorite poet with is deep and dark writing that can be interpreted in so many ways. It’s always made me think of the beauty of nature and the freedom of just disappearing off into the woods to live in nature and forget life’s responsibilities. Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening Whose woods these are I think I know. Read more ...

Wanting To Return To Wind Cave Near Pequea

Feb 10, 2019 - 2 minutes
Lately I’ve been thinking I want to hike back out to Wind cave and see what’s changed since we were last there for geocaching and a CITO. I had read of it before geocaching but we never got there until the cache was there. Actually I’ve been wanting to go back there since last summer but with all of last year’s rain we never made it. Wind Cave is not like the caves most people imagine with stalagmites and stalactites, it’s a tectonic cave which means it’s not formed by water dissolving rocks, instead it’s caused by faults.

Why Are Restaurant Website Still So Bad?

Feb 8, 2019 - 1 minutes
I may have posted about this before but it certainly still seams to apply to this day. Why are restaurant websites so shitty? What does a fancy animated logo add to the website and what do they gain from having a menu system that only works with javascript? Then you also have to just love the stupid pdf file food menu. We do go to this place and I do like it a lot but if I hadn’t already been there the website would have turned me off Read more ...
