There was much buzz yesterday ahead of winter storm Remus. As a matter of fact, the governor of North Carolina declared a state of emergency based on the forecast by The Weather Channel, which called for 5 – 8 inches of the white stuff. Personally, I didn’t believe it if the temperatures were to hold where they said, around 32 or 33. Mostly we got very heavy snow mixed with rain, yielding about MAYBE 1 inch of snow and a…

It seems that now every weather system that comes through needs a name. I remember when only hurricanes got named and when all of those names were names of women.

My E-M1 performed flawlessly. I had to wipe the lens a couple of…

Yesterday, another nice day in Charlotte. It was about 61 degrees and I was driving up S. Tryon St. going to meet my friend, James, for dinner. A few car lengths ahead, I noticed a truck spraying something on the street. I couldn’t read the sign on the truck, but I thought that it might have been cleaning the streets. I thought, though, if it is cleaning, it’s not doing a good job. As I got closer, I saw the…
