Go check it out... Southside Park: Forty-Six City Block of Surprise
You gotta love youth... the courage or maybe it is just the opposite. There are some kids that live down on the corner. Now, I call them kids, they are probably my children's age or around that. So, in their mid to late 20's. They brought home a truck load of snow today, covered their stairs with it, and I think were snowboarding down the stairs... too funny! I just hope they don't break their necks!! Be safe guys!!! Tj.
Wow! Quite a storm... the wind was gusting up to 50-60 MPH? I thought for sure one of the big trees on our street would be blown over... but we awoke this morning and they are all standing! At least on our street. I hope the rest of the neighborhood was as lucky! Be well... stay dry and warm. Tj.
Wild Turkeys? Driving down the street today about a half a block away I saw some very large birds and thought what the heck are those? A closer look they were a pair of wild turkeys! I don't think I have seen turkeys in the neighborhood before! They looked very much like these guys but were very skinny. Didn't look like a Thanksgiving Turkey for sure! Be well... Tj
We are getting a new traffic light in the neighborhood. The corner of 6th and W. And it can't come too soon, new pile of auto glass all over the ground. That is a bad corner at certain times of day, when rush hour traffic is whizzing by... and on Sundays when the farmers market is on. But the lights are up and waiting for the electricity... and probably an inspection. Soon!
Not exactly my neighborhood but I had to post this... in Rancho Cordova CA which is about 8 miles from home, a tornado touched down! We don't get tornado's here! Photo courtesy of the national weather service. It was quite a storm but a tornado?? WOW!
My original intent of this blog was to portray a piece of everyday life in my little corner of the world. I failed at that... I think because I tried to hard, to find different interesting things to post. I wanted grand things, and overlooked the tiny miracles that make up every day. So, back to the drawing board! Today, February 19, 2011... the first day of a new daily small details of this wonderful neighborhood I call home. Here today the sky is mostly cloudy, the trees are bare, the neighborhood is quiet. Snow levels are really low so it's cold! I see a Scrub Jay out my window. Be well... Tj.
