“A stretch of mild weather that significantly shrank the city’s monstrous snowbanks and turned roads and sidewalks into a sodden mess also marked the longest January period of above 0 C temperatures since 1873.”
See 67 hours above freezing a record January thaw for WinnipegI know one anecdote doesn’t make a novel but the warm spell noted to the right is in the midst of two weeks of way-above-average-temperatures. no kidding. The “jet stream” that normally allows wintery air from the North to hover over us all winter has literally broken up and that cold air has flown the coop. I’m not complaining. It’s keeping the snowmobilers who were hassling me all wet but my snow cover is almost gone. We had one day of -35° C and two or three minor dumps of snow and nothing but well above weather forecast for weeks.

My MissionMy observations and opinions about IT are based on 40 years of use in science and technology and lately, in education. I like IT that is fast, cost-effective and reliable. My first use of GNU/Linux in 2001 was so remarkably better than what I had been using, I feel it is important work to share GNU/Linux with the world. Now that I'm retired I still use GNU/Linux on every computer in my home except the smartphones which run Android/Linux.
Lately, I've been giving lots of thought to the world I inherited and which I will leave to my descendants. I'm planting grass, trees, flowers and vegetables in my large lot and I've ordered a Solo EV. I plan to charge my Solo by means of a tracking solar array. Life is good if you have a purpose. I do.
