Frank Cavellaro Called This One Correctly, Eh!

23 Jan

Frank is Weather Forecaster for CBC Owned CBMT Channel 6 in Montreal & heard on CBME FM 88.5 FM in Montreal(104.7 FM In The West End of Montreal).  Since I have the Tune In Radio App for the Android Mobile Phone, I do tune in to CBC Radio One in Montreal.
Outside of WCBS Newsradio 880AM here in the 5 Boroughs, where “Traffic & Weather Together On The Eights” gives me the NYC Weather Forecast, and is rather reliable, Montreal is where I get the “Fore Forecast”, as I find that what occurs 36 to 48 Hours before in Montreal, is what occurs here in The Five Boroughs of NYC.
And Frank called this storm over 24 Hours Ago. It’s -4°C with 8 CM on the ground here.
Thanks, Frank!

It Was Like A July Night In November

7 Nov

It was Sultry out there, especially in the Caverns of Midtown Manhattan, as I had gone to The Holy Sacrifice Of The Mass At Holy Innocents RC Church in Midtown Manhattan on West 37th Street between Broadway and 7th Avenue. In fact it was so Sultry, the Air was way too moist & it was 75°F(24°C), thus an Evening of Sweating. It was UNCOMFORTABLE, to say the least.
It was more like a JULY Evening & NOT “Indian Summer.”
Things have cooled off here on this Saturday Morning in Queens.

Deo Gratias!

A Catholic Elementary School’s New Lease On Life

5 Nov

Not too far from where I am domiciled, Our Lady Of Cenacle Catholic Elementary School at the Richmond Hill-Kew Gardens, Queens Border, closed in June, 2008. It began in 1950 & was initially staffed by Sisters Of Charity Halifax, and closed with an All Lay Staff of Teachers in 2008.

Let’s just say that what was once staffed by Sisters Of Charity Halifax, is either in Lay Control or is no longer in operation. A good # of these schools have continued to serve the needs of Catholic Elementary School Students.

Our Lady Of Cenacle School is now utilized as the High School Division of the School For Language & Communication, a Non Profit Educational Institution based in Glen Cove, Long Island, NY. This facility is leased from Our Lady Of Cenacle RC Church on the Van Wyck Expressway Service Road. This is a School For Hearing Impaired & Autism Spectrum Students & is Non Sectarian.

At least the School Building is being operated as an Accredited Institute of Learning. And It is a Good Thing.

Deo Gratias!

Weird Flux Weatherwise In Forest Hills, Queens

30 Sep

In a Matter of 30 Minutes, the Temperature has wildly fluctuated. The Temperature went from 70°F(21°C) to 78°F(26°C) to 67°F(19°C).
Welcome to Whacked Out Autumn In New York City.
One Minute, you are sweating as if you have a Fever. The Next Minute, you’re shivering.

It’s Autumn! No wonder I am wearing a jacket.

De Caffeinating At Starbucks

3 Sep

Lets put it this way-Starbucks Coffee is Strong Brew. Why is the Coffee rather strong? Consider WHERE The Founder of Starbucks is from & he is no Native of Seattle, WA.

Howard Schultz is a Native Of(Drum Roll please)………..Brooklyn, NY, where accents are strong and so must be the coffee, especially while waiting for the BMT on various El Platforms.

But, I wanted to cool off as it is brutally Humid in addition to 🔥 so must I write about it. And switched over to Decaf Frappes, which have refreshed me. This shall be a Decaffed Day.

And THAT Is Good, as it calmeth my nerves.
