Granny Tells You What's Going On

Back Home

| January 12, 2009

We’re here, and most of our things are put away. I am a nest maker, so it is important to me to have things in order. I do have one problem, our bikes got covered with salt and snow on the way home. Our daughters had thoughtfully shoveled, so we drove right in the garage, […]

Got Snow?

| December 19, 2008

I just checked the snow and there are 5 inches. D1 left for an appointment about 7:40, you can see a lot of snow in her tracks. It’s up to the storm door, so I shoveled it away after I took these shots. Papa said so few showed up at work, they will probably be […]

Weather? In The Winter? In Michigan?

| December 19, 2008

Snow is expected today in Michigan. No kidding, it’s winter and there will be snow; hard to believe. Folks, since we had the first flake this winter, the weather men and women have been singing and dancing, talking about the lack of money to clear the roads, the problems commuting, and all the stuff they […]

And the Winner is…..

| March 5, 2008

GS2.  He came home from Scouts last night, and went upstairs saying he was going to pray to the snow gods.  I don’t believe we got over 4 or so inches, but school is closed today. I just shoveled enough to get my van out, because S-Dad has an eye appointment this morning.  GS2 will […]

Gray Day

| February 29, 2008

Did I say before that my Dad used to assign colors to days?  I guess I did.  Dad was an interesting guy; I wish I’d known him better.  He died when he was 51, and I was 28.  I was busy, very busy with 3 small children.  I was also angry, because I viewed his […]

I LIKE IT…..

| February 18, 2008

What a weekend!  I did mention the camper show, didn’t I?  We went and I’m still thinking about some of what we saw.  It’s a dangerous place, because of course, we want  (or perhaps I want) a new one.  I’ve reached a stage in my life where I seem to know enough to look only at […]

A Little Snow

| February 7, 2008

Yesterday, there actually was some winter weather around here. We got ice/sleet/rain/snow on Wednesday night, creating a real mess. Yesterday morning, I spent about 2 hours shoveling what looked for all the world like a frozen margarita off our drive. It wasn’t a lot of fun, but it was good exercise. After a busy rest […]

Weather?

| February 1, 2008

So everything on earth is cancelled, schools are closed, and I can see about 4 inches of snow.  It is not snowing right now, at least not too hard.  Traffic on our closest mile road is moving quite nicely.  I notice that last night’s forecast of 10-12 inches was somehow reduced to 4-7 inches this morning.   Just now […]

Upgrade Blues

| January 8, 2008

The time came to upgrade the blog again. No wonder I don’t have a more creative template, I couldn’t keep it up-to-date! I was happy that everything with the upgrade was smooth. I simply don’t have the energy to fight too hard over anything right now. The new stove is working quite well, thank goodness. […]
