Iacta alea est



   Iacta alea est posted on Main Page The Lobby  What a big load of.....not much. I live in central Westchester County, NY (predicted 18"-24" ) I stayed up until after 2 AM to see some of this "blizzard". When I woke up this AM this was a whopping 6-8 inches on the ground. I'm mad at myself for letting the dang blasted media take me for a ride.

   Bettijo  I just think the National Weather Service is trying to CYA. Many times they have underestimated the storm or the time it would begin. I think it was just last year or year before that Atlanta came to a complete standstill, people got stranded on I-285 and had to spend the night in their cars and children were stuck at school all night. As a result the next time they overcompensated for a few flurries. Also, governments are fearful of being criticized for not warning their citizens.

   MeiDei  I was up til 4am today getting fresh batteries in place, candles w/matches nearby, cooking & all laundry done - now to just relax without stress even though there's no way I can get out of my driveway! (smile ). I still rather be prepared to be safe rather than sorry and am never disappointed when a bad storm is predicted & it turns out otherwise - with the power staying on is a big plus.

The storm isn't over for us here in NE, the temperatures are frigid, what snow we have isn't going anywhere soon, gradual warming is best so the moisture doesn't saturate the soil & make spring flooding a possibility. Surely, all those dependent upon electrical [with or without battery back up] medical devices are happy - I'm sure we're all happy for them.

   MeiDei  BTW Iacta, I just heard from my niece in Putnam County and she has over 2' of snow. She's sort of happy that their new snow blower is getting it's first use.

   Iacta alea est  Every point you make is a good one Mei. I too had positioned the generator for a quick deployment if necessary, put my MAG lite flashlight on my belt, etc. I was glad both Mom & Dad were safe and sound in their respective hospitals. I just don't like being prepared for something that turns out to be a lot less than what was expected. Don't get me wrong, I hope everyone who got hammered by the snow comes away unscathed, except for some sore muscles probably. Surprised to hear that Putnam County got hit so hard. Sometimes (when it comes to snow fall ) I'm like those crazy folks who don't evacuate when the hurricanes come.

   Gerty  Check with your niece in Putnam County again, Mei. It was predicted for us to get 2'--we actually got about 5-8" (hard to be accurate because of the wind factor ).

   MeiDei  She sent pictures of the neighborhood, the front of her house, the side driveway, & the back deck - no doubts here - the upper 1/3 of a yardstick barely visible. The drifts were more than waist high.

My backyard has maybe 3-4" so I thought I was home free til I opened my front door & saw the exact opposite - only the door handle on my car was visible via approx. a 12" x 6" space in the snow - not all of it drift. I have a neighbor who came over an hour ago with his new snowblower & did most of the drive & front walk - my angel! : )There is a God & He knew my concerns before I uttered the words.

   Iacta alea est posted on Main Page The Lobby  Mom is doing better. She's off the ventilator, breathing on her own. She was awake and talking when I saw her today. Still has pain due to the surgery. But all the doctors believe she'll make a full, but slow recovery. My sincere thanks for your love, support and prayers.

   Iacta alea est posted on Faith  OK Prayer Warriors, you are needed again. Mom was taken down to NY Presbyterian, and another anyerism has been found.

   MeiDei  Will continue in prayer for her. To put your mind at ease, my mother at age 80 had the same operation for the same aneurism & survived for many years after. Today the surgery is less invasive than 20 years ago, it was explained to me late last year as I have the same condition. Years ago it was a 9-hr procedure, today it's much more micro surgery - less invasive, less hours on the table. All surgery is a risk, so I'm not making light of it. I will keep all in my prayers. It's certainly been a year of upheavals hasn't it. Here's to a happier New Year.

   Iacta alea est posted on Main Page The Lobby  Well the Christmas celebration is completed as far as my family goes. Mom made a two-day Herculean effort to be a full participant and was successful. She was able to sit thru today's and yesterday's (40 min. both ways )trips to the hospital to visit Dad to open gifts with him. After my daughter Ellen read Scripture, she said grace, and then she stayed at the table all thru last nite's dinner. She opened gifts with us this a.m. And her spirits remained good throughout. I'm sure her granddaughters helped in that regard. All in all I was blessed with a fine celebration of the birth of out faith. I pray all of you had good celebrations despite what we all are bearing. "Go tell it on the mountain!!!!!"

Poor mom, but, we all went overboard on her this year! Candies, nuts, Single Malt Scotch, Eddie Bauer gift certificate, a new shirt, a new mug, coasters, I forget what else.

   Surfhut  Wonderful news! It is hard to watch our mothers age. My own dear Mother passed about a decade ago. It gives me great joy now to dwell on the precious memories of my childhood that were possible because of her. I dwell these days on imagining her in Heaven - her beautiful, happy, young, smart, mischevious self with no pain or dementia.

The media is being called out all over the place and just plain folks are starting to notice just what the heck is going on. Even the liberals can't escape the common sense answers to what is going on. It's kind of like they are asking "who are you going to believe, us liberals or your lying eyes?"

   Iacta alea est posted on Main Page The Lobby  A friend of mine for over 30 years is a detective on the NYPD. 2nd generation, his Dad served with distinction for 30 years too. We spoke tonite to wish each other Merry Christmas. He told me his Christmas has been ruined. In all the years I have known him I have never heard the intense contempt and disgust in his voice when he spoke about DeBlasio, Obama, Holder and the execrable Al Sharpton. The NYPD is deeply mourning their murdered comrades. I am not a big fan of boycotts. But we the good people of America, and I do mean good people, must boycott anything to do with NBC, MSNBC and the parent company GE until that human compost heap who soils the title of "Reverend" is taken off the air. "What do want?....Sharpton off the air!....When do we want it? NOW!

   MeiDei  Sorry about your friend's Christmas let-down. Hope yours is better with your family intact. As for the NBC, etc., I'm not supporting GE but they sold their interest to Comcast a few years ago. Comcast + 0bama + Sharpton are a trinity = braided together. The truth about their union is starting to filter out.

   Iacta alea est  Thanks Mei. My buddy says his entire precinct is apoplectic about DeBlasio & Sharpton. And thanks for the heads up about GE dumping NBC. Probably the smartest think they did since Jack Welch retired. And to change the subject I hope things are better for your son & yourself.

   Alice  Thanks for telling us this; I hope you will convey to your NYPD friend that people across the country share his feelings of grief for his murdered comrades, and we feel deep contempt for the leftists occupying the presidency, AG, and NY mayor's office, and the man you mention who words have preceded violent deaths of police officers for decades.

May your friend find some peace in the Christmas story; we live in a fallen world, but God loves him and the rest of us. And the rest of us also appreciate his work and sacrifices as a police officer.
