My reivew of the winter of 2013-14

Journal Entry: Tue Apr 22, 2014, 9:37 AM

With Easter over with, I want to take this time to review on the winter of 2013-14. Now with this review, I am referring to my area where I live and no where else even if they got the same winter as we did.

This winter we had was quite...unusual. It wasn't a mild winter with mostly rain and little snow, it was the exact opposite. It was a real winter with lots of snow...TOO MUCH!

In all of my years of living in Muskoka, I have never seen a winter that had way more snow than we anticipated. Snow drifts on the sides of roads were higher than in previous years. It was looking like my fursona's time period, the 1920's.

This winter I have had to shovel more snow than in previous winters mostly at my father's house. Snowsquall after snowsquall, I ended up created a snowdrift behind his house to keep his walkway clear that became so high it got more difficult to shovel with every new snowfall.

The amount of snow wasn't the only thing we had to deal with. A polar vortex from up north came down and caused many days of temperatures well below the freezing mark with nights going down to the minus 30's. Every winter we usually get a number of days when the temperature goes up past zero resulting in mild temperatures and rain that lasts for one or two days before it goes down but this year it rarely happened.

This winter also came much earlier than in previous years. It began at the end of November and went on until the beginning of April. Spring came much later.

As much as I love winter, the winter of 2013-14 was more than we bargained for. By now mostly all of the snow is pretty much gone and I am ever glad. All I hope is that next year's winter won't be anything like this one.

:pencil: Info on my sona: "Captain" Johnson Lusitania Smith is an orca sea captain from the 1920's of a Trans-Atlantic ocean liner dubbed the Royal Mail steamship (RMS) Canada of the Maple Leaf Line, a British/Canadian company competing on the North Atlantic with the Cunard and the White Star Line. His ship sails between the ports of Canada, the United States and Europe and not only is the flagship of the fleet but pride of the nation she was named after. He is a gentlemen and can be very kind to anyone he meets but he can also be very tough and it's advised not to try and do anything that could really make him angry.

:pencil: Info about the real me: Hi! My name's James but I mostly called "Captain" after my fursona. I am an autistic male from Canada and have a great interest in ships, boats and other maritime stuff having to owe most of it to the RMS Segwun ("Springtime" in the Ojibwain language), the oldest operating steamship in all of North America and the oldest Royal Mail Ship in existence to which her homeport is my hometown. I should also give credit to my grandfather who was a boat builder working at Grevette Boats, one of two well known boat-building companies once located here in my hometown. I have a keen interest in history mainly of the 20th century. I own my own fleet of scratch-built model ships that I have built and sailed since 2006 that include the SS Lake Muskoka (2006), SS St. Thomas City (2007), RMS Canada (2008), RMS Segwun (2010), and the SS Sagamo (2011). While ships, boats, nautical stuff and history are my main subjects of interest, I have others as well like photography, film making, computers and video games mainly Nintendo and their franchises like Mario, The Legend of Zelda and Pokémon.

This account will mostly consist of photographs and artwork done on the GIMP program (all my artwork is to be kept family-friendly G rated)

What I will draw:

:bulletblack: Furry/anthro/non-anthro
:bulletblack: Ships and boats
:bulletblack: Other things that are non-boat or ship-related

What I will NEVER draw or simply have no interest in:

:bulletred: Porn, yiff, scat, urine, nudity, sexual themes, extreme violence, blood and gore or anything that I find disgusting or disturbing
:bulletred: Anything futuristic from the Star Wars or Star Trek universes
:bulletred: Vore, paw or any other fetishes
:bulletred: Sailing ships and warships
:bulletred: Aviation
:bulletred: MLP
:bulletred: Cartoon inflation
:bulletred: Transformation


My fursona and all characters and ships including the RMS Canada and her sister ships created by me as well as the Maple Leaf Line and DSBC (Davidson Ship Building Company) are © :iconoceanlinerorca:. Please ask for permission to draw them or include in a scene, comic, etc unless otherwise stated. DO NOT repost any of my pictures or artwork without my permission please. I ask for no mature pictures of my fursona please. Due to being busy a lot with ship-related things and such, I don't leave "thanks for faving" shoutouts or "your welcome" for faving. I will still give thanks for faving my artwork/photos.

Actually, Glen, I had you on my watchlist since I first created this account in 2011.  I'm having an issue whenever you posted journals entries they wouldn't show up in my messages so I figured if I un-watched you and then re-added you to my watchlist, it would solve the problem. 
oh sorry I never knew..... thanks for telling me.

Yeah, about that I just got too busy plus my father has discounted the service he was using for far-away calls so I am no longer able to call you via telephone anymore. 

Sorry.  The only way now is Skype but I assume you don't have a laptop yet. 

no james I don't but I did ask one for Christmas but didn't get it.


Oceanlinerorca Feb 27, 2014  Hobbyist Photographer
Well, here's hoping you'll get one eventually.
