2017 sucks so far…

Posted by admin on January 9, 2017 in Uncategorized |

I’m not sure how it is for anyone else, but this year has sucked for me so far. None stop issues at work and terrible weather. 

We in the South do not handle snow very well. We got about 1.5″ here, luckily far from the predicted 6″-8″, but as we don’t have an abundance of snow plows in NC, it has been a challenge to get around. 

I had to work on Sunday, and this was how the roads looked atound 7am:

Now that there was some melting and re-freezing of the snow yesterday, and the roads were just sheets of ice this morning;

But being the dedicated employee I am, I have braved the elements and gone in to work. By Friday, the temperature is expected to reach 70f. Crazy weather here in NC. 

Oh well, time for bed, so I can get up early and drive on ice again in the morning. 

I love my job, I love my job…


Happy New Year

Last year I tried doing a photo every day challenge, and I failed miserably. This year, I just hope to post here occasionally. 
2016 came and went in record speed. We saw many famous people pass away, we saw the continued religious wars around the world, and we saw the election of Donald Trump. The world is a strange and dangerous place, and I just hope it doesn’t spiral out of control. I am not a fan of Trump, but I do believe he deserves a chance now as he won the vote. 

As for now, I hope 2017 will be a good year for all of us. I have certain personal goals that I will keep to myself, but I will remain cautiously optimistic about the upcoming year. 



Happy Birthday CJ

Special Birthday wishes to my son.  He turned 12 today.  I cannot believe how quickly my kids are growing up.




031/366 – Missed a few…

Life sometimes gets in the way of keeping up with my posting.  I made a trip to Lake Mattamuskeet this past Wednesday, but the weather didn’t cooperate very well.  Not many keepers this trip.  The wind was so bad, my tripod wouldnt stay still.  The water was so choppy in the afternoon, the birds went to solid ground.  Here are a few that I liked…



024/366 – Let it melt…

Our winter blast is over.  Power was lost and found again.  The snow is melting, but the black ice will appear overnight.  I guess it could be worse, we could live in the North East…

Anyway, a snap from my iPhone 6 – still amazed at the photo quality you can get from a phone these days.



023/366 – Ice Ice Baby

The winter storm has descended upon the Carolina’s.  Lots of ice with a layer of snow on top of it.  Unfortunately, the Birch tree in the front yard didn’t fair very well.  It will be interesting to see how lopsided it is in the Spring…



022/366 Snow and Ice

So far no snow, just sleet and freezing rain.  Keeping my fingers crossed that the power stays on.

I took this yesterday, and tried to upload it using the WordPress App, but the app sucks!

The calm before the Storm..

I came home feeling ill today.  Have spent the afternoon wrapped in a blanket, but had to venture outside to let the dog out.  The sun was justsetting..quite pretty, but damned cold.

A single column of ice interweaved with the mesh of my porch screen…
