Thank Goodness For Global Warming!

     Well, it seems that more than a year has passed since I last wrote. Anyway, a whole new year has arrived, so I guess that proves it. I was beginning to enjoy the excellent weather we were havin'. Then all at once, winter pounced. Everywhere I look, the only color I see is white. Now, I have nuthin' against the color white, but there are some other shades that I enjoy, as well. Ah, well; I guess winter has to have her day, too.

     I've always loved this time of year. I've lived from Washington to Florida an' Maine to California an' everywhere in-between. I've seen every possible mood that weather can offer, within the United States, an' I still love winter best. 'Course, with the onset of what some of our fine leaders have deemed as Global Warming, I may not get to enjoy too many more of these beautiful white winters. According to the Powers That Be, we could be in the process of warming ourselves right into oblivion. That is, if we don't all freeze to death, first.

     Rumor has it that no one took the time to tell Ol' Mother Earth that she's warming up. I guess no one felt that she needed to be informed. I s'pose she'll figure it out in her own time, eh? In the meantime, I hear from friends in California that snow an' rain have sent lotsa' folks --- nowhere. Yup! That's what I said; nowhere. Between the rain an' snow, I hear tell that some people are virtually living on the freeways. At least, that's what I call it when people park their vehicles on the freeway for hours an' hours at a time. It just doesn't make any sense to get in your car an' sit still, otherwise; do you think? I sure don't.

     Folks aren't doin' much better on the east coast, either. With record snowfall filling highways an' blocking passages from point A to point B, all over the country, I really think it would be in the best interest of everyone concerned to contact Mother Nature. It's jus' possible that she might be able to work somethin' out with the Powers That Be so's we could all relax an' be a little more comfortable.

     I love winter, but even I think things are goin' a little haywire. If I din't know any better, I'd say that Mother Nature is trying to prove a point. Maybe she thinks that since man wasn't there to cause all the other fluctuations in weather for the past ever-how-many thousands of years, then man should keep his opinions to himself an' let her go about doing what she has been doing for all those thousands of years, without man's input. At least, that's what I'd be saying if I were Mother Nature. All I can say is thank goodness for Global Warming or we might all freeze to death!

     Until the next time, keep a hug on.

I have to say I don't understand all this stuff about global warming. The earth, over time and by over time I mean thousands of years, it warms up, it get colder. We just need to learn to deal with it. We're all going to be long gone before the earth gets warm enough before anyone really notices the difference (and I'm not talking about scientists or Al Gore. I'm talking about regular folks)

Blessings and prayers,

LOL. Love your post. I'm as confused as Mother Nature is. Global Warming? Brrr.

Happy New Year, Yaya!

I'm married to a scientist...He says that there is no such thing as global is a weather cycle we are in and we should be worried about it.

Send some of your snow my way. Most of ours melted last week. :(

I agree, Joanie; Global Warming is a figment of someone's BIG imagination. I can't help but wonder what we would be pushin' if we weren't pushin' Global Warming. Maybe someone would suddenly decide that trees are a danger to the world an' ban 'em. Anyway, Global Warming makes almost as much sense, if you ask me.

Thank you, Andrea. I hope your New Year was awesome.

Hi, Bev. Yeah, that's how I feel, too. I hafta' laugh at how many ways I've heard for explaining the cold away, in light of this perpetual Global Warming. Maybe, if we all decide to run in the same direction at the same time, we could outrun the warming trend - - - or the cooling trend; whichever we're fighting at the moment.

I totally agree with your husband, Sharon. This is no different than has been goin' on for thousands of years. The only thing is, if we're smart we'll find a way to stay warm during cold spells an' stay cool when its hot. 'Course, I'm sure past generations were smart enough to do the same. I hope.

You are certainly welcome to some 'uh the snow. Shall I send it in an envelope?

Last year, the east coast snowfall was unreal. And the middle and southern states received more than new england. Looks like it's going to be another crazy winter.

Happy new year.

I think you're right, Theresa. One day, we had this beautiful weather to wallow in an' then, BAM! Winter woke up with a vengeance! I hope everyone has lotsa' blankets.

View it as torture. we keep poking at the climate system. Adding this, paving over that, etc. Eventually there will be an effect.

True story, Anonymous. In the end, Mother Nature is gonna' do what she's gonna' do - - - no matter what we do to encourage or deter her. I jus' don't think we could do enough to change her real pattern, no matter how hard we try. An' sayin' that it's torture is the perfect way to describe it. LOL
