This ins’t Buffalo this is Sacramento Dammit!

Its cold.  COLD!   At 5am the outside temperature in my car is say’s its 32! Why am I up in my car at 5am checking the outside temperature?  Cause I can dammit!  Its my car and I can check anything I want at any time, so sit on a toothpick!!!                     I’m cranky, cause I’m cold!

I’m happy, happy, happy, there is snow in the mountains. Whoo Hoo we need it!      I’m Happy, Happy, Happy for those who are excited about seeing snow and having a White Christmas,  I know people driving up tomorrow up to Sierra’s to see the snow, knock yourselves out.  Make all the angels you can, god bless.

The closest I’m getting to snow is channel Forty.

If their open, I’ll have my white Christmas at Leatherby’s , some good ole vanilla (white) ice cream, with a gallon of hot Caramel syrup, with whip cream (white) with nuts (boulders).

I don’t do cold!

Cold is  Minneapolis, Boston, Portland Maine.   Places where they get their daily cardio by shoveling snow.  Hoo Haa, that’s what I want to do. (NOT!)  Their choices are few, shovel or stay home and watch Maury and Nancy Grace.  I think I would shovel anything to avoid Nancy Grace.  ANYTHING!

The people in the colder states are weird.  When I visit my friends, I notice they are dressed in layers .  They put on layers to lounge.   WTF?   Living, is in my  Fruit of the Looms or Penney’s Towncraft jockeys  and a large floppy shirt. If ya drop by without calling you get to see my ginormous legs and other surprises.     And if I get cold.    Just crank up da heat.

On the east coast, you touch the thermostat and you’ll  return with one less finger. It’s not uncommon for people to have $300 to $500 a month heating bills.

But I’m cold in Sacramento. Cold.  I’m wearing my BIG Chicago, coat.  I bought it in Chicago after I arrived wearing a fleece jacket.   In Chicago, fleece is like tissue paper.    Normally, I wear it a couple a weeks a year in Sacramento, usually in January,February.

When they talked about  El Nin’o they talked about rain, snow in the mountains.

No one mentioned cold!!!  Scraping the fucking windows cold!  Falling on your ass cause there was ice on the fucking side walk cold!  ICE ON A SIDEWALK IN SACRAMENTO?   What the Fuck!

Sorry about the language.  I’m Cranky.  I was taught only common people swore.  People with limitations, limited vocabulary’s.


(    arrow down 😦    )
















What I want for Christmas, is lots of  Freezing Snow in the mountains.  Lots and Lots of rain in the Valley (sorry Rio Linda) and temperatures where they should be in the high 40’s and low 50’s .

Merry Christmas

Big city fella, Born and Raised in the San Francisco Bay Area. Lived in New York (a part time New Yorker) for three years . I have lived in the Sacramento area since 1993. When I first moved here, I hated it. Initially found the city too conservative for my tastes. A great place to raise children however too few options for adults . The city has grown up, there is much to do here. The city suffers from low self esteem in my opinion, locals have few positive words to say about their hometown. visitors and transplants are amazed at what they find here. From, the grand old homes in Alkali Flats, and the huge trees in midtown, there are many surprises in Sacramento. Theater is alive is this area . And finally ,there is a nightlife... In.downtown midtown, for the young and not so young. My Criticism is with local government. There is a shortage of visionaries in city hall. Sacramento has long relied on the state, feds and real estate for revenue. Like many cities in America,Downtown Sacramento was the hub of activity in the area. as the population moved to the suburbs and retail followed. The city has spent millions to revive downtown. Today less than ten thousand people live downtown. No one at city hall could connect the dots. Population-Retail. Business says Sacramento is challenging and many corporations have chosen to set up operations outside the cities limits. There is vision in the burbs. Sacramento has bones, there are many good pieces here, leaders seem unable or unwilling to put those pieces together into. Rant aside, I love it here. From the trees to the rivers. But its the people here that move me. Sacramento is one of the most integrated cities in America. I find I'm welcome everywhere. The spices work in this city of nearly 500,000 and for the most part these spices blend well together. From Ukrainians to Hispanics and a sizable gay community, all the spices seem to work well here. I frequently travel and occasionally I will venture into a city with huge racial borders, where its unsafe to visit after certain hours. I haven't found it here. I cant imagine living in a community where there is one hue or one spice. I love the big trees, Temple Coffee House, the Alhambra Safeway, Zelda's Pizza, Bicyclist in Midtown, The Mother Lode Saloon, Crest Theater, and the Rivers. I could go on and I might. Sacramento is home.
