Why Did the Duck Cross the Road…

This is what my eldest daughter and I saw while driving past Sullivan’s Pond in Dartmouth today… They actually used the crosswalk! This last duck stopped to take a drink of freshly fallen rain water before stepping onto the sidewalk!

The Heidictionary

The Heidictionary is a dictionary of words, terms and expressions Heidi uses that I had never heard of and/or enjoy so much I simply have to share them with you. BUTTONS - what Heidi calls a remote control for the television. Her mother points out the reasoning behind the terminology, “Well the remote has buttons.” CANADIAN GOOSE – used by Heidi …Continue reading →

Who lives in the Great White North?

  I’m sorry…who lives in the Great White North? Wichita, Kansas is shut down for the third day in less than a week because of… SNOW! I told you it snows in Kansas. And when it snows it pours I guess. My children have had two snow days this year and so far Heidi’s children have had three! Who would have …Continue reading →

Weekly Weather Outlook – February 5 – February 11, 2013

Yesterday was a snow day for my children. We had two weather systems come through on Sunday, February 3 into Monday, February 4. The first one dumped 20 – 25 cm (8-10 inches) of snow on us Sunday morning into the afternoon. A lot of the main roads were clear enough for driving by that evening - far from perfect, but clear …Continue reading →

Weekly Weather Outlook – January 30, 2013 – February 5, 2013

I cannot believe January is almost over! With only 28 days in February I guess it will be March before we know it! Heidi said it snowed in Wichita Tuesday night. I asked her to take a picture to share but none accumulated on the ground. It does snow in Kansas though That was quite a change from the weather …Continue reading →

Where there is sea smoke there is…Jack Frost nipping at every exposed body part!

It is cold this morning! So cold that while taking this post’s picture, my fingers froze in the short time it took me to swipe my phone’s screen a couple of times and click the picture. Note to self: buy the new gloves that allow you to swipe a touch screen while wearing them. There is a cold front currently …Continue reading →

Weekly Weather Outlook January 21 – 27, 2013

So as you can see below this is another week where it is warmer in Wichita than it is in Cole Harbour. That is fairly typical for this time of the year and not surprising since Cole Harbour is much farther north than Wichita. Cole Harbour had lots of snow last week and we are expecting another 10-20 centimetres (which is …Continue reading →

Weekly Weather Outlook January 16 – 23, 2013

Okay, since I can’t quit my day job yet, I was a little late posting the weekly weather forecast due to lack of hours in a day to do all that I need to do. I am sure most, if not all of you, can relate. Anyway, here is the weekly weather forecast for Dartmouth and Wichita for the week …Continue reading →

Weekly Weather Outlook January 7 – 14th, 2013

We thought something fun to do might be to compare the weather between Nova Scotia and Kansas since it seems many people think we here in Canada live in blizzard-like conditions all year round or at the very least are surrounded by snow and ice most of the time. We definitely do experience our fair share of snow and ice …Continue reading →

A Brand New Year!

On December 31, 2012 I declared to my fiancee that 2013 was to be our year! She and I were both going to accomplish (or at least develop a well laid out plan in order to accomplish) all of our desired goals but…we broke up instead. Ironically one of our goals was to see each other once a month. What a difference a day makes. …Continue reading →
