Yikes! As a retired guy, DW and I volunteered to help babysit grand kids in Fargo until Monday night. Looks like we so
I'll not make it back to Bismarck with that mess coming our way. It sucks, but it sucks less than mud slides, earth quakes, tornadoes and hurricanes! . the best part is the after 3 months of FIRE, I am not in a hurrah to get back home like I would have been the past 35 years at Mega Corp. Dance!

Bismarck/Mandan is predicted to get a foot of snow tonight and tomorrow.

Before I retired and pondering where to move, I looked on the Census Bureau's web site to find the state with the lowest population per square mile. That state was North Dakota.

Then I looked on NOAA's web site to see what the climate was like there. I found there is a good reason for the low population per square mile.

I quickly abandoned any thought of moving there.

We had a big snowstorm in Connecticut yesterday morning. Four inches in some spots. My normal one hour commute was stretched to two hours, and I counted 3 multi-car collisions on the highway and another 11 cars in the ditch by themselves. What a mess. I'm hoping that T.S. Elliott was wrong and that April is not actually the cruelest month; I don't think I can take any more.

You might want to consider property in north central Wyoming. Low population and a beautiful place to live. I live north of Sheridan WY and sell real estate. Born and raised and love it here. The Big Horn Mountains is the best you can find with easy access. Another good retirement point is there is no state income tax in Wyoming!!

Billings, MT is only 1.5 hour drive.

It's a beautiful spring day in central Minnesota. The only reason I am not really grumpy is that they are forecasting 60s and 70s next week. ImageUploadedByEarly Retirement Forum1397663419.922721.jpg

I switched on A/C tonight, which is a good sign . Mother Nature switched it on last winter but boy, she must have been doing crack cocaine...

I have to go through a whole ritual of venting the hot air with a window fan and then using three fans in the bedroom before I surrender to the A/C season. I like to have two utility cycles that are low/moderate spring and fall. One of those unnecessary frugal twitches/
It was 89 today and still at 74 . I would not do it in AZ or TX.

Thunderstorms, if any, won't be until the afternoon.

There was an exciting spring storm in my area yesterday evening. Lots of lightning and hail. A passenger plane was struck by lightning on its descent towards the airport.

My grandparents used to live in the Okanagan Valley. We used to experience some whopper storms in the summer when we were visiting!

It looks like the house did OK. Hope no one was hurt.

Hey Walt, I just saw your post and the photo of your deck railing. Aren't you going to re-stain it or what?

June 24th, over three weeks into hurricane season, and still there have been no named tropical storms or hurricanes in the Atlantic or Gulf of Mexico yet, amazingly.



We have been having spotty, very intense thunderstorms this week with lots of rain in the affected locations falling at a couple of inches an hour for an hour or two. A mile away there might be nothing. It is already over 96F here today. Crazy weather but it sure beats hurricanes.

We are starting to get a tropical flow from the Gulf of California. Light showers and big puffy clouds, monsoon season is sure to start by 4th of July. I have a 6-pack of beer riding on this.

Yup. I've been using a clear sealer.
