A Fog Blog

Today was a foggy day. At about 1030 AM or so, the spouse and I went for a walk break. It was still foggy and the air was tinged with whiteness, as it often is just before snow falls. Only we don’t get snow here by the rivers. Rarely, anyway. The last time I think... Continue Reading →

Gratitude 2020 – Day 9

Today my gratitude is for the change in the weather. The reflectiveness of the fall season, where our city is bathed in leaves and cool air. Fall leaves in Sacramento The coolness and sometimes chill of Fall make it easy to think. We move faster outdoors. We do things faster, to generate heat. Fall is... Continue Reading →

Gratitude 2020 – Day 8

Blame it on the rain. My gratitude for today was for the cool, windy, rainy weather. And the opportunity I had to go walking in it. I got my spouse to come out in it with me, and we both had out coat collars pulled up as we trudged up and over the I-5 freeway... Continue Reading →

Gratitude 2020 – Day 4

I posted before and... Continue Reading →

Outdoor Running in Record Heat

This morning at about 5 AM Pacific, I posted the following worry on Facebook : OK, so water, a bit of black coffee, water. A bit of salt…I should be fine out there, right? I mean, I used to run in this kind of weather in Texas, in Basic, when I was in my 20s…and... Continue Reading →

The Heat is On!

So this morning, I opened the door to check the local temperature and possibly open windows to air out the house. It's already 82 degrees. At just barely 6 AM. It's dark outside, and it feels like the dark hell you experience on Mr. Toad's Wild Ride. I didn't find that part entertaining, and I... Continue Reading →
