The thunderstorm has stopped. That much is obvious. If there were more to the thunderstorm, then I must have slept through the rest of it. Then the thunderstorm stopped. The sky is blue with a few clouds. The thick heavy clouds which had the thunderstorm has gone away. So now it's a standard Springtime day after the thunderstorm. So what happens now? I guess I get to do whatever I want. Nobody has any alternate plans for me to follow. So I get to create my own agenda. So what shall I do when I get to create my own agenda? I don't know. I'm sure that I'll figure something out. I get an entire morning to figure something out.

And so continues the story of Steven Post Hitchcock. I'm a forty-nine year old person living in Columbus, Ohio and working minimum wage at Bob Evans Restaurant. I'm one year away from becoming fifty years old and I'm starting to get grey hair to prove it. It's raining outside. I could hear the thunder roar across the sky. There's supposed to be a severe thunderstorm watch. Yeah, not exactly the type of weather to be camping outside in. It's the type of weather that's easier to witness from the inside. At least it's getting warmer so there's no need to worry about freezing cold rain showers. A brief day long cold spell is expected, but not going to last very long. Anyway, that's what's going on tonight.

It didn't feel much like Winter and it's starting to feel even less like Winter. It's starting to feel as if Springtime is returning. I'm wearing lighter jackets. And soon I won't be wearing any jackets at all. It's starting to look as if March will go in like a lamb and go out like a lamb. There doesn't seem to be any rough weather except for the occasional light falling of rain. Today is Thursday. Tomorrow is Friday. Summer will soon be here. Another delightful day in Columbus, Ohio has been concluded. It should be fun to find out what tomorrow has in store for the Gentle Reader and myself.

It's another cloudy day. Perhaps the sun will shine later today. Or perhaps the sun will shine tomorrow. The sun isn't shining right now. So I'm guessing the sun will be here on a later date. It's cloudy outside. It's cold enough to wear a sneakers, blue jeans, plaid shirt, a zipper up hooded sweatshirt, a scarf and a brown light jacket. With the outside temperature in the sixty degree range, it's feeling as if Spring is slowly arriving. It wasn't really much of a Winter and now it's slowly turning into Springtime. Anyway, the month of February only has six days left. Six more days until March 2017 begins. Who knows what crazy and amazing adventures could be enjoyed on the month of March 2017. I can't wait to find out.

In the morning, there's a fresh sense of optimism. In the morning, it looks as if anything is possible. The day has yet to turn horrible nor has the day yet to turn flawlessly perfect. The day has yet to turn any sort of direction because they day has yet to begin. It could be the day of second chances or alternately, it could be a day of continuing a path of positive great reward. They day could take any sort of direction of the Gentle Reader's choosing. Of course, naturally we all want the day to turn out flawlessly. Weather that goal is achieved is up to your perception and your intentions. And with luck, the Gentle Reader's perception and intentions will benefit both the Gentle Reader as well as the community as a whole.

It gets confusing sometimes. In some states and/or cities, Washington's Birthday and Lincoln's Birthday are celebrated as separate holidays. In other states and/or cities, Washington's Birthday and Lincoln's Birthday are merged into the same holiday renamed Presidents Day. In the city of Columbus, Ohio Washington's Birthday and Lincoln's Birthday isn't celebrated as separate holidays, but merged into the same holiday called Presidents Day. And that's what happened today. Today is Presidents Day. It's also confusing because sometimes Presidents Day is held on February 15 (Which is also my birthday) and other times, Presidents day is on February 20. Somehow, somebody decided that February 20, 2017 will be a great day to hold Presidents Day. And so today is Presidents Day. Happy Presidents Day y'all.

Is it safe to assume that Winter has ended. Or rather, is it safe to assume that Winter is over in Columbus, Ohio at the very least. I'm not sure if Winter is over in other cities, but the snow has melted quite a while ago here in Ohio. Then again, there really wasn't much snow to start with. So it's hard to have an extensive Winter when the thin layer of snow that previously existed has already gone. It's way too early to mow the lawn at any rate. Just look out of the window and admire the landscape. Just look out of the window and wait for the leaves to grow back on the trees. Just look out of the window to admire the nighttime landscape of the suburbs spread out before me.

Well, another day is done. The clock ticks closer towards midnight. The clocks ticks closer towards Sunday. The weather was so warm that I don't need to wear a Winter coat outside. I'm starting to wear a zipper up hooded sweatshirt, a scarf and a light Autumn jacket outside instead. Perhaps the weather will get colder. Perhaps the weather will get warmer. I'm not that good at predicting the weather. What little I know is received from the local television news. Anyway, it's late and I'm tired. I'm going to get some sleep soon. The Gentle Reader and I will find out what tomorrow is like a few hours from now.

And so here I am. I'm one year older. I'm hoping that I'm one year wiser. I know what you're thinking Gentle Reader. Isn't being one year older already a guarantee of being one year wiser? Well, that's not necessarily the truth. Just because a person is one year older doesn't mean that such a person is one year wiser. There are plenty of older folks out there who isn't any bit wiser than when they were teenagers. Wisdom takes work. Wisdom takes effort. Wisdom takes lots of introspection. Yeah, nobody is perfect, but I'm hoping to be looked upon as getting a bit closer towards perfection than I was last year.

Yesterday was Valentines Day. Today is my birthday. I'm forty-nine years old. I'm one year away from turning fifty years old. This is the way I'm looking at it. I'm not getting older (Even though the slight greying of my hair say otherwise), I'm getting younger each and every year. Yeah, it's kind of hard to sell such a philosophy to other folks, but that's what I keep telling myself anyway. Anyway, today is the start of a brand new day. Today is the start of my birthday celebrating mood. Today is going to be a fantastic day. I can feel it in my bones. Nothing but optimism and delight for the entire day.
