Looking along the Onondaga Lake shoreline during my January morning work break walk, I think of how people love it here come spring and summer. And I look forward to the warm feeling.
Hey, I think during my January morning work break walk, the warm weather return of the boats will look pretty good framed between these two trees come the end of May, too. Dream on, I will.
On a clear January morning break walk, one can look to the east down the Onondaga Lake shoreline and appreciate the Syracuse skyline forefront, country hills behind. It’s quite pretty, I think before I head back to the warmth of the library.
Walking at the Onondaga Lake Marina in January, the return of the boats to their warm-weather berths seems awfully far away. I’m rooting for Memorial Day …
I will keep my eyes out for eagles as I walk past the inviting-looking winter-bare trees along the shores of Onondaga Lake. The limbs look perfect for a rest for any eagles hanging around.’
When I think about slippery ice to avoid when I walk along Onondaga Lake Park’s paths, yes, it’s sidewalks and other walkways that can get covered that come first to my mind.
The sign I showed yesterday warned about the thin ice. I knew if I looked hard enough I’d find some building up at the Onondaga Lake Marina. No time for boating or walking out there. I’ll stick to my shore strolls.
The winter sign hanging at the Onondaga Lake Marina makes lots of sense in January. Even without an obviously big ice buildup, I’ll keep my distance.
As far as I’m concerned, the longer the shovel designated for side alcove and backyard path/deck work remains tucked right next to those steps, I’m happy. You know where I stand in the snowfall category. The less, the better.
The backyard roses are suddenly looking much more seasonal. Up and down this winter has been for so many reasons.
