It's about time.

Many of you can relate to Working long hours at your career. Raising your families. Buying a home and paying all the bills related to being homeowners and parents. We're now retired and don't need all that work and expense. Now "It's about time" and what we do to follow our dreams.

Seasonal Weather.

Our Location today is Tecumseh, Ontario, Canada.

Even the weather guessers were off yesterday when they forecasted the high winds to end early in the evening. The windows continued to rattle way past the time that we went to bed last night. This was one time that we were really glad that we were in a rock solid building to ride out this storm. We’ve experienced less intense storms in the trailer and spent most of those nights being jolted awake from the trailer’s movements. 

Watching the Weather Channel this morning we witnessed scenes of mature trees that had been ripped from the ground at the roots or strings of Hydro poles that had been snapped like toothpicks putting entire communities in darkness. The forecasters also gave their opinions of what we could expect for this coming winter and they kept using the term Polar Vortex quite a bit. 

After eating breakfast and sitting at the computers we could still hear a slight whistle of the wind outside but it was far from the intensity that it held yesterday. We both had chores that we tried to get finished this morning since we are now only one month away from our departure south for the winter. A repair/replacement of the power cord on my electric drill couldn’t be done the way I wanted to due to its internal construction. At least I was able to clean a buildup of debris that had accumulated internally over years of use. 

We did get a big Thank You for having wrapped those Christmas gifts yesterday that weren’t ours. The 6 o’clock News showed more local damage that was brought on by yesterday’s high winds as well as erosion along the shores of the Great Lakes. They also showed how a lot of other people were helping one another out to deal with not only storm damage but acts of kindness for the upcoming season. 

The sky remained overcast throughout the day and we’re back into below normal temperatures for our region but there is a good chance that we might see the sun tomorrow. We again watched another Christmas Special on television tonight as a way to relax since there is not much we can do outside at this time. 

Kathy and I would like to welcome Dawn King as our newest blog follower. Unfortunately Dawn doesn’t have a blog listed at this time so if that changes in the future we’ll give it a Shout-Out for others to follow. Thanks for following along and feel free to leave a comment. Be Safe and Enjoy!

It’s about time.
