In Sandy Utah, when it comes to snow we are willing to share. We are in a lull between storms - a chance to rearrange the snow for asthetic or practical purposes, a chance to keep the roads clear. There is quite a load on most home roofs that may become a challenge if more snow falls before a me...

With sun on the snow, our home plowing was relatively easy. My wife, Christie is a whiz with the two-handed snow blade, where I am more like Don Quixote, tilting with windmills, my left arm bearing the snow shovel and my power chair as my horse. We were going well until the City bladed our Circl...

"Tis a beautiful Monday. the sun is out, the temperature is above freezing (just), but the sky is blue (in parts). What a better way to start a work week! Snow makes Utah properties look so TIDY, even prompting a seasonal retake of MLS outside pictures, or making current pictures taken for listi...

Since my marriage in Salt Lake City in December 2004 and my moving to Sandy, Utah permanently in 2006, I have considered  the Christmas Lights at Temple Square as my event of the year.

Just because everyone is doing it, this is hardly a valid defense.       Today,everyone has a mobile phone.  If you are like ...

With a conscious decision to avoid what might be called Black Friday shopping rituals, I have spent a peaceful day at home (Yes - I do have a home office too). I might have felt full yesterday, but I seem to have added to it all today. In what might be an excess of good food, my wife has kept me ...

I can just about feel my fingers again (7am - my first thankful thought for the morning). Local roads are crackly icy and very slick in patches. The temp in Midvale, Utah got down to MINUS 1 overnight, and here in Sandy we are at a warm 4 degrees (Weather Channel adds "feels like minus 4" - not t...

In our home we are nicely warm. The white exterior looked somewhat inviting, so in shirt sleeves I rolled outside to my van. The change was quite chilling (6F). The van has its snow cover from last night's "blizzard", a slight challenge before I head out in an hour. The high winds from yesterday ...

  I can choose to have a fixed viewpoint.  I will always have the same perspective. However, as the insets show, even small changes in viewpoint, produce quite dramatic changes in perspective. The example shown here deals with a the viewing of a solid object. It can be extended to challenges tha...
