It was 60°+F yesterday, and this afternoon we had a few inches of fluffy snow. I was not expecting it. Wasn’t that much, though I went out and shoveled. Supposed to get a mix tomorrow. Hhhmm.

I caught this. It was cute. A week too late for Valentine’s day.

Check out some other pictures of the snow.

Fitbit Sent Me This “Ferris Wheel” Badge For Climbing 75 Floors In A Day — But, I Am NOT Done For The Day!

I despair with Fitbit.

Today was NOT a good Fitbit day. I discovered, all on my own, that the latest firmware caused by Ionic to underreport GPS mileage. I was immediately told it was a known problem! Jeez. GPS mileage is pretty basic. You would think they would test that …

Then, this badge. I should be chuffed. No, I am NOT!

Why, I got it at 8:42pm today. I am not sure about YOU, BUT I do not go to bed for another 5-hours. 5 hours. I will climb at least another 10 floors.

What can I say. Climbing stairs is my thing.

One of these days I will have to try for 100 floors in a day. I can do. Piece of cake.

Fitbit Ionic APPEARS To Be Underreporting GPS Mileage After OS 1.2 Update.

Today, after I had updated to OS 1.2.

Same run last week. One of my regular, fixed routes that I can run with my eyes closed.


Just been told that it is a KNOWN ISSUE!

Just a HEADS UP for now.

I updated to Fitbit OS 1.2 yesterday morning (very early). I ran a new route yesterday, so I had no reference as to reported mileage.

Today, I did one of my regular runs — which I run at least once a week and have run, multiple times, with multiple GPS watches: Garmin Vivoactive HR, Garmin Vivoactive 3 & now a Fitbit Ionic.

There is a metal gate and I turn around at it when my watch says I have done 1.6+ miles. That is to make sure I get at least 3.2 miles.

Today, I get to the gate … BANG on my Ionic … and it says 1.59. I go ‘strange …’.

Could be user error on my part though I am not sure how since I start at the same place.

What I am trying to determine is whether any of YOU have spotted anything strange.

Then we might have a case.

24th Annual JTG Music Memorial Extravaganza, Giuseppe’s, Meredith, Sunday, May 6, 2018 — Program/Schedule.

Initial heads-up … MAINLY because the JTG, normally held in April, has been pushed back to May because one of the key Bourgeois family members is serving abroad — ‘Bourgeois’, of course, referring to Julie Gnerre-Bourgeois, as in the owner of Giuseppe’s and the daughter of ‘JTG’.

I will keep you posted. Stay tuned.

As always this should be a blast.
