(muttermutter) Stupid weather. Stupid mud…

I hate everything.


Started raining at 5:30 yesterday. Rained all night. Not raining at present, but that’s clearly up for revision at any moment. It’s basically supposed to rain and/or snow for the next 2/3 days. I just went for my long morning walkie while I could, already in a bad mood because I yelled at Laddie when he misbehaved (rabbit, not really his fault) just as I had blundered us into a bunch of gooey ash mud I should have known enough to avoid. My stump was sore yesterday because I was on it all day, and about 25% into the walkie I figured out I should have given it a miss this morning. Hell, I fixed the Jeep engine yesterday, a good shakedown and check for more dripping could have been an excuse. But the weather is supposed to be miserable for days and I wanted my walkie. And now I’m all sore again.

I’ll take solace in being pleased with myself for not lazying out on finishing the plumbing. I’m an old retired guy: Normally I wouldn’t bother with two projects in a day, but I had the means to finish them both and an incentive in the promised weather change. So now I’m going to clean off the reading chair and check out one of these OffGrid Magazines. Maybe it’ll teach me how to live off grid…

ETA: 8:37 am – aaaand it’s raining.

    I’d rather have your rain than the Blizzard the weather guessers here are calling for tomorrow.

    Like Eric, we’re forecast for 2 1/2 days of snow, 12-15 inches predicted, with 60 mph winds. My guess is that the combination, if it materializes, could result in power outage, so I’ve been making sure that all my off grid backup plans are gathered and functioning. I’m kind of looking forward to the possibility. It would sure be better than a wildfire summer.

  3. This is the first winter I can remember that your weather grumblings haven’t included what it does to your power system. That’s something you should celebrate.

    The weather will improve, and in no time you’ll be looking for shade on those walks!

    CoHermit, our forecast is similar because I after reading some of your comments over the years put us somewhere around 30 miles apart.

    Yeah! We finally found the right “minimum” that’s not always straining the batteries and in danger of failure if the sun doesn’t shine for two days. I’m also pleased with the way these old batteries are holding up.

    Hi Eric. We used to be in Park county, between Lake George and Tarryall. Now we’re in Woodland Park, which is kind of close to everything. We should try for a coffee sometime. I’m kkoch18 at hotmail dot com. Longtime, bigtime fan of Joel and Tuak. 🙂

To the stake with the heretic!
