Well, not quite correct, prognosticators! They had issued a winter storm warning and predicted 5 – 8 inches of snow. Maybe they should have said 5/8 of an inch – then they wouldn’t have been so far off in this neck of the woods where we got just a tad bit more than a dusting, certainly less than 5/8 of an inch! However, you have to give the news reporters props for trying. I watched a news report this morning…

Just so that you won’t worry, I’ve already made my trip to Walmart for milk and bread! I’m all set. I imagine that tonight, the grocery stores will be full of folks trying to get ahead of the approaching winter “storm”.

Allow me to explain: In preparing for my trip to Cuba, I have to figure out a way to get from Charlotte to Miami and back. No problem whatsoever. Charlotte is an American Airlines hub. Lots of daily, direct flights. Piece of cake. I start looking at flights and see that they can…

Many things happen between the markers that we call January 1st and December 31st of a given “year”. If you look online, many are saying that 2016 was the worst year “ever”. Interesting.
