We might hopefully get at least a few of the showers that they were predicting a little further south. At any rate Tuesday dawned a lot cooler than the past weekend into Monday. And that wind is still a force to be reckoned with! Any rain would help...

This is Sunshine Week and we all would like some sunshine for a few days, especially this year. But that obviously isn't quite what that means. Open government and transparency in our various political entities are what Sunshine Week focuses upon....

We were listening to the 70’s channel on the car radio and heard “Short People” on Casey Kasem. The song had been a hit in the top 10 for a few weeks. You could not even sing that song now. If you’re too young to remember the song, I’ll...

Is this latest iteration of February weather rather surreal? We go from where we had experienced at least 12 straight days with a below zero low in Ipswich to Monday's near 60 above afternoon high. But that was only if you could actually see to read...

How do you spell brr, this way, or even more r's depend how cold it really has been lately? So should we go brrrrrr or even more of the letter r to describe our recent bitterly cold spell. But it sounds like we might, just maybe get some relief in...

Several things to touch on so here goes! The weather? How about last Wednesday's power outage for several hours due to several days of that white stuff built up on power lines and trees. (A little is pretty, but a lot is pretty dangerous.) But as is...

Could the groundhog see his shadow? I doubt he could even see his nose in front of his face, seeing how foggy and frosty it has been lately. So we might have six more weeks of winter or we might not. Especially with climate change occurring on...

February is right around the corner, believe it or not. And one of the first things we associate with February is a ground hog for obvious reasons. And I guess there will also be a Super Bowl in early February despite the coronavirus pandemic. Our...

Was the winter solstice on December 21 this year? It seems like I had heard that somewhere. That did seem a little early, but maybe not. At any rate it might be quite a long time until we begin to actually experience the effects of the longest day...
