Keeping The Windmill Alive – February, 2022

 

Perhaps you can post on a new book you're reading, a new hobby you're taking up or about random finds as you finally get around to cleaning out the..., or your most recent adventure?

Anything to keep your windmill alive.

Please keep comments polite.

This thread will be closed on the last day of the month and a new one will be opened.

I had a class at a ranch

I had a class at a ranch about half an hour south of here.

Staying home today as it is raining

North of here there is lots of ice, snow and/or freezing rain. If you are in the affected area and have to drive, be careful!

hello

everybody!

Saw the in-laws.

Saw the in-laws.

Weather

Warmer today. Layer of ice from recent storm disappearing.

back

on-call this week. I get that many people "must" be available 24/7/365, but to be officially on the hook stinks.

What I would say is multi-tasking is ineffective in general--would you want your car in for service and the tech is working on 4 cars at the same time (lol watch YouTube and the flat rate mechanics' woes)? A human can pull it off, but again, not desirable...

Weather

I think we finally turned the corner towards spring .......please, please, please let it be!

Last Trip

To the car wash

Subway

Last trip was Sunday to subway for a steak and cheese for the pro bowl, Pro Bowl what a joke and a waste of money. Sandwich was good. Switched to the Olympics instead.

No rain...

Still no rain. Beautiful and will be in the low 70's today but we really need rain. Another dry year and probably another town will burn to the ground.

Rain here is wasted, we have few rivers and no dams to collect the water. So far, we're above normal rain for season for whatever it's worth.

Windmill Post

Someone once said: "We used to have two windmills at our place back home. We had to tear one of 'em down - there wasn't enough wind to turn 'em both."

I never get lost, but I do explore new territory every now and then.

Good day trip

Made a day trip from Murrells Inlet, SC down to Mt Pleasant and back. Made the usual stops at several antique stores and Trader Joes. Tried a different burger joint for lunch. We have added that place to our approved list. Easy drive down and back.

Cold

Went out and filled the two-bird feeder in the trees. 40 but fells like mid 30's. Thinking about a walk this afternoon if it warns up more and no wind.
