ALL SEASONS – SNOW CAN EFFECT EVERYTHING

Hello All Seasons Friends,

Thankful for your great, witty, interesting posts last week!
Could not be happier for you, and for heat, water, and light!
The ice storm reached the international news!

Am stunned about something that happened in my country
of origin. Heard from our son who lives there. When they
they extended the lockdown January 25 with a curfew
from 9 pm to 4 am, riots broke out
in TEN different cities throughout the country!

These were the first riots since the end of World war II,
70 years ago. That is how unlikely riots are in this country.
Most of the rioters were teens and 20 -to-30 years of age.
*Where were the parents of the teens?? Can their children
nowadays just do whatever they want?
*And so DUMB, to riot for this reason: having to stay at home
when stores/clubs, bars are closed
and it’s for the most time dark. Mind boggeling!

THIS WEEK

 

Last week we experienced how important heat is,
 when no smoke is coming
out of the chimney with wood burning.
The only source- central heat – failed in the power outage.
Our adult kids worried “How do you keep yourself warm?”
Hubby dryly answered ,
“Three layers of clothes, a hat, scarf, and mitts is all we need:)”

 

Cold definitely effects one’s mood. I had to remind myself
to keep being upbeat. Most of the time
that goes without any effort.

 

Still a hundred things to be thankful for!
The beauty for once thing ….
cooking with gas was another …

 

Another year we had snow the first of April!
Luckily the daffodils survived it.

Feel free to comment on anything in this post!

  1. Having never lived anywhere near snow, I can only but imagine the downsides, but I see there is a lot of beauty too when I see the posts of you and others in snow times. Spring is on it’s way – enjoy! Stay safe and have a good week.

  2. I don’t understand rioting like this. I agree, everything is closed anyway so where do they want to go? We are locked down here we have some protest marches but not many.

  3. We have had similar demonstrations here in Australia protesting against lockdowns and against vaccines and against the “COVID conspiracy” (saying the virus doesn’t exist). It’s a pity, Jesh, because nowadays the standards of education have fallen, community spirit has declined, hard work is unacceptable and most of the younger generation live in the instant gratification bubble. Anything that threatens their “fun” is “bad” and must be turned against. Sad!
    Lovely snowy scenes (though I realise snow can be a nuisance when you have to live with it day after day). We very rarely get snow here in Melbourne and we have to travel hundreds of kilometres up to the mountains to enjoy it.

  4. I am guessing that those rioters had reached breaking point. This pandemic really has dragged on too long. People are losing their livelihoods.

    On a happier note, I love that owl shot! And the daffodils are so pretty, Jesh!

  5. I don’t really understand the curfews as a way to minimise transmission – people will just do all the high risk stuff earlier in the day…but here’s hoping things change. We’re all a little fatigued.

    1. Without knowing your comment, since I’m doing the comments mostly after I visit all the blogs, I suggested that may be you were dealing with covid fatigue. After all, it was a year long horrid year, and no matter how healthy one is, it does affect the immune system! Like I said on your blog, be kind to yourself, and pat yourself for every healthy move you make. Hugs, Jesh

  6. Good to hear you made it through the ice storm without any frostbite. Here in Florida we do not have gas service, so we depend upon electricity for everything. Of course there is the backyard BBQ with propane. Luckily our blackouts have never lasted more than a day or two, although this can be long enough to defrost all frozen food. We do freeze lots of ice packs when a hurricane approaches and this can help keep some food from spoiling even if it defrosts (but not ice cream!). Young people can be fickle– many do not realize the need to protect the vulnerable, or if they do, they do not care. Just hope that spring break does not bring in hordes of college students this year.

    1. Thank you for sharing your thoughts! We haven’t heard much about the college students yet, going through last and this year. Maybe this is the time for them to show they are not all snowflakes, haha. Five of my grand kids are teens, and they are all doing relatively well, but I got to say, good parenting helps enormously! Can see you are one who prepares for those nasty hurricanes – good for you:)

  8. So addicted to nightlife that they resort to rioting. Unbelievable generation!
    Beautiful pictures, glad the daffodils survived. It’s getting really warm here in Bangalore.

    1. Right now in Texas its really going up and down with the temperatures. don’t know this is common or not (since it’s our first winter here).
      That is where I am dumbfounded about Shiju, there was hardly any nightlife, Am planning to write a Dutch friend who’s more politically informed, to get more details of this bizarre event.

  9. You’ve had quite a hard time there. Covid and climate are showing us how small and vulnerable we are. We ‘ll have to get adapted to the changes going on in our world.
    Meanwhile in the Netherlands we are used to the curfew. Luckily we haven’t had any riots in Friesland. Time passes fairly quietly here between winter and spring. We avoid crowded places and wait patiently for the slow progressing vaccination,

    1. You know, at the time the only thing you think about is to just get through it! There was not a moment in my mind doubting if we would uberhaupt make it out alive.
      Yeah, I noticed after the Skype talk with our son that you had not mentioned anything about riots. Luckily there’s at least one province where young people can control their anger! What I am still dumbfounded about is, how did they all – not knowing from each other (??) start rioting at the same time -basically?
      Here in the USA (you might hear different from the “news” that reaches you) my estimate is that right now about 50 percent will take the vaccination. If all these crazy things happening after taking the vaccination (death, neurological symptoms, Alzheimer symptoms) will die down, may be another 20% percent more will take the vaccination.

    2. As you put it, it seems as if the Netherlands was on fire during riots in a dozen cities. I do not approve of those riots, but I can imagine that young people made themselves heard with demonstrations.

      Your question of how it was possible that they all revolted at once, I would like to answer with a counter question. How was it possible that hundreds of armed protesters attacked the Capitol in Washington at the same time, thinking they were making a grab for power?

      I think in essence both cases are people who have allowed themselves to be seduced by false and lying politicians.
