Not really much going on here besides work and the lack of snow. Winter is really taking it’s time getting here this year, and it’s pissing me off.
I’m missing Alaska, though the weather there is pretty sucky also, but still missing it, and feeling a bit displaced. This may be part of the reason I’m not sleeping. I can count on one hand the number of nights I’ve gotten a full nights sleep since being back in Michigan.
Message from NOAA from today about our weather…
REGIONAL WEATHER SUMMARY
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE GAYLORD MI
648 AM EST SUN DEC 04 2011
IN A MONTH NOTORIOUS FOR BIG TIME SNOWS AND BITTER COLD TEMPERATURES
ACROSS NORTHERN MICHIGAN…TONIGHT WAS ANYTHING BUT…WITH AREAS OF
LIGHT RAIN AND DRIZZLE AND SLOWLY RISING TEMPERATURES. BY MORNING…
READINGS RANGED FROM THE UPPER 30S TO MIDDLE 40S. THESE TEMPERATURES
WERE A GOOD 15 TO 20 DEGREES ABOVE NORMAL FOR THIS TIME OF YEAR.
ALL THIS SOMEWHAT ODD WEATHER CAME COURTESY OF WARM AIR BEING PUMPED
NORTH AHEAD OF LOW PRESSURE MOVING ACROSS EASTERN WISCONSIN. NOW…
THERE WAS SOME SNOW…BUT IT OCCURRED WEST OF THE SYSTEM BACK ACROSS
NORTHWEST WISCONSIN AND THE WESTERN HALF OF UPPER MICHIGAN.
On a fun note, I bought myself a new Pentax DA 55-300mm f/4-5.8 ED Lens. Now for the new camera.
Haven’t had a chance to play with the new lens due to crappy weather and lack of winter, so this is the only photo I’ve taken so far.
Wish I would have had my tripod for is, but still turned out ok for being very overcast and flat lighting.
