It has been snowy, snowy, and … snowy in Kenosha this week. It’s one of the snowiest winters (or at least most-frequent snow events) that I can remember in recent memory.

You might be wondering: what does that have to do with Oh-Fer? Well, I’ll say that Oh-Fer is often described in sports when an individual has 0/n on a certain stat (such as failure to complete a pass, failure to make a shot in basketball, etc.)

I had an oh-fer this week, specifically an oh-fer-five.

Bonkers is what the weather has been in my area lately. Consider the following:

  • The weekend before last weekend, Dina and I were essentially walking around Kenosha in shorts and T-shirts, as the high exceeded 60 degrees Fahrenheit. In. February.
  • The weather cooled off a bit last week, but remained unseasonably warm here. It stayed dry.
  • Last weekend, “cold” weather hit with temperatures that failed to exceed freezing. Nevertheless, it seemed to be an outlier at this point!
  • Tuesday, a severe thunderstorm struck Kenosha around 17:30, followed by a dense pea soup that I had to navigate through after the storm was done.
  • And finally yesterday, snow fell! It was only a dusting but still…

I guess that means March is coming in like a lion.

Or it means:

Go home Mother Nature, you’re drunk!

Of course, I’m also afraid about the implications of it coming from climate change…

Fishtails galore!

Nope, I haven’t been on the lake for sport in forever. Last time I used a rod was back in the summer after my sixth grade year.

Instead, fishtails refer to the action of skidding. And I had plenty of those yesterday!

Yes, perhaps Noah is going crazy, as seen in the following video…

The weird thing: despite the fact that the temperature was a manageable sixteen degrees Fahrenheit outside, the time in the arena combined with the bike ride home made my hands numb with cold during the (relatively) short bike ride. The fish-tailing and uncomfortable riding didn’t go hand-in-hand.

I suppose that bike-riding really DOES create that much extra draft and vulnerability, even on unexposed hands! ‘Scuse my (insert language here that won’t offend the reader), but DAMN THE EXTREMITIES!

[393/441] On the one hand…

I find it interesting how there can be so many dualities that appear in life… and you end up choosing the “A” when the “B” is indicated, or vice-versa.  (In some cases, “A” and “B” are Yes and No respectively.)

I will therefore consider a few dualities that came to mind recently.  I was thinking about the dessert that I ate tonight, and how it indeed gives duality in multiple senses.
