Goodbye … and good riddance.


Well, it has been an unforgettable January 2014, and a January we’d really like to forget. We were in and out of the Deep Freeze and it has been snowing like there was no tomorrow. We were colder than Anchorage, Alaska on more than one occasion. We broke a couple of records, among them the fact that January 2014 is in the books as the snowiest month on record in Detroit in over a century. We received a whopping 39.1 inches of snow; the former total was 38.4 inches in February 1908. I was just perusing the various local meteorologists’ week-at-a-glance predictions, and each forecast looks ominous, so perhaps February is going to try to best January as to snow accumulation. Why hold the Winter Olympics in Sochi – we could have had ‘em here for goodness sake. If the groundhog says there is six weeks more of Winter to endure, someone might try and shoot that varmint. This is weather for polar bears! In the meantime, best slog out to the store to get bread and milk and some good reading material, then hunker down for some R&R and well-deserved “me” time.

About lindasschaub

This is my first blog and I enjoy writing each and every post immensely. I started a walking regimen in 2011 and decided to create a blog as a means of memorializing the people, places and things I see on my daily walks. I have always enjoyed people watching, and so my blog is peppered with folks I meet, or reflections of characters I have known through the years. Often something piques my interest, or evokes a pleasant memory from my memory bank, and this becomes a “slice o’ life” blog post that day. I respect and appreciate nature and my interaction with Mother Nature’s gifts is also a common theme. Sometimes the most-ordinary items become fodder for points to ponder over and touch upon. My career has been in the legal field and I have been a legal secretary for over three decades, primarily working in downtown Detroit, and now working from my home. I graduated from Wayne State University with a degree in print journalism in 1978, although I’ve never worked in that field. I like to think this blog is the writer in me finally emerging!! Walking and writing have met and shaken hands and the creative juices are flowing once again in Walkin’, Writin’, Wit & Whimsy – hope you think so too.
