A Comment on the Weather

Tuesday, December 23rd, 2008

I got a Christmas card from the nice folks at the World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF) – the Climate Witness division. You may recall the article I wrote for them concerning the pitiful state of Lake Lanier (speaking of which, the scientific review of my story is now available). The card reminded [...]

Musings for the week of 2008-12-22

Monday, December 22nd, 2008

Just noticed I’m eating at a place with an 84 health score. If I don’t twit in after lunch, I’m dead. #
I have lived through lunch! Perhaps hot coffee will sterilize my bowels. #
70°F on Dec. 18th – this weather has sapped my energy completely. #
Nothing beats blasting out your favorite tunes from high school [...]

The Sins of Man

Wednesday, July 23rd, 2008

We’ve returned home from Philadelphia, though home is not exactly as we left it. There is a gray storm cloud hovering above us; perhaps still building in power and ferocity, or lingering remnants of a thunderhead. I’m not talking about the weather, though the hurricane located near Corpus Christi does invoke a palpable invocation of the mood.

The Hot is Here to Stay

Sunday, June 22nd, 2008

Well…that’s it, folks; it’s official.  Summer is here and it’s not going to be getting any cooler for a while.  Enjoy the longer days, bar-b-q’s, swimming, and sun.  The lake still isn’t up to a satisfactory level for those using it recreationally, but at least it’s still here!
Balthazar and I swam in it just this [...]

The First Camping Trip

Tuesday, July 31st, 2007

While Balthazar’s first camping trip was actually over just before 10:00pm, he did get some good exposure to camp-life and the adventures that surround it.
Balthazar has been going on about a camping trip for days now. We’re not exactly sure where he picked this up, but I couldn’t be happier. I love camping [...]

Easter Weekend

Monday, April 9th, 2007

Spring hit northeast Georgia with a bang this year. The kind of bang where everything gets very uncomfortably hot just before a good week’s worth of freezing temperatures. Saturday morning, it was 31° F. Last week, I think we saw days in the mid-80′s. But comfort aside, the cooler weather will [...]

Oo-Lah-Lah, Spring’s Guffaw

Tuesday, March 20th, 2007

Winter really didn’t have much of an icy grip this year. It is not unheard of to see a hearty snow in the middle of March, but I think the danger of that is over. Spring appears to be here to stay, if the Cherry trees, Flowering Pear, and Daffodils are to be [...]

Mostly Sunny Skies

Wednesday, July 12th, 2006

Saturday in Vostok, mostly sunny skies with a low of -104°F. Meanwhile, Death Valley reports sunny skies and a pleasant 123°F. Hard to believe we’re talking about two places on the same planet.

In Memory of Douglas Adams (1952 – 2001)

Thursday, May 25th, 2006

Today is Towel Day throughout the Universe. If you know of and love Douglas Adams, you will wear your towel in reverence of his comedic brilliance.
Pictures are everywhere, though Flickr is a good start. And here’s mine.
More importantly, a towel has immense psychological value. For some reason, if a strag (strag: non-hitch hiker) [...]
