Another Winter wallop – only this time, the South is sharin’ our pain.


Old Man Winter is kickin’ out the hits, more than the late DJs Gary Owens and Casey Kasem. But now the warm-weather states got a taste of Winter with ice and snow. My friend Evelyn who lives in Virginia, whom I mentioned in my post on Saturday, enjoyed a day off from work after Richmond got 8 inches of snow. She texted me, eager to show off her icicles which were lined up in a row and already starting to drip. All my school buddies who have moved to warmer climates posted photos on their respective Facebook walls to show the ice and snow on their decks and in and around their yards as well. Just the other day, a South Carolina pal spoke about her honeysuckle bush that had bloomed and the frogs that were already croaking in the nearby creek. I must admit I was jealous for that weather – but not for what they are dealing with now. Southeast Michigan enjoyed a weather break today – it got to 20 degrees! Just perfect for trotting out and grabbing yourself a fad-laden, wonderful-tasting paczki for Fat Tuesday if you were so inclined. Some people were lined up as early as 3:00 a.m. for these delectable goodies.

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.

    Oh we had a few of those tasty Buns. We all are anxious waiting for warm weather. I hope our Southern friends enjoyed the treat.

      Today was our warm-weather treat – that’s pretty pitiful isn’t it … all of 23 degrees I think I just heard. When I forwarded my blog post from Patch onto the fellow bloggers in my Patch group, I explained about Michigan’s infatuation with paczkis … a mere 1,300 calories apiece.
