…the only other set of footprints out there are the ones you left two days ago, because everyone else is being smart and staying inside.

So there’s a frost advisory for tonight. It’s still September. Last year we were picking tomatoes deep into October.
Not sure if I should be happy or sad about this…
So spent yesterday burning off the yard trimmings pile and the ditch and the canal bank (just in time for Earth Day!), and now my lungs, which are flaky in the best of times, have decided that they are all for this whole “limiting carbon emissions” thing, and are showing their support by forcing me to cough up what can only be described as radioactive space slugs.
I’d been doing so well so far this spring, in spite of all the dust and cleaning we’ve been doing at both home and down at Grandpa’s house. Guess my number’s up, and now it’s time for my yearly spring allergy crash.
But at least the field and yard look nice.
Negative nine this morning, or so the weather service says. A might nippy, you could say. The cat’s water was frozen even though it was on it’s new, fancier, much warmer, heating pad that I bought last week since this seems to be par for the course this winter.
Sorry if it seems that all I talk about lately is the weather–but when the temperatures keep doing things like that it sort of dominates your mind…
Well, time to get ready to go to work and sit in an unheated building all day long…
The whole world’s gone to hell in a handbasket, but what else is new? Molon Labe and all that. I guess all I can say about my life right now is that it appears that in the past week and possibly the rest of this week, we’re going to get more snow than we did all last winter combined. Keep it comin’, Algor. Between Christmas festivities, my brother being home, a puppy, and still going to work, there’s not a whole lot of time for me to find youtube videos for you to watch…
If you said that here in the deep south it’s warmer than the cold white north, you’re 100% completely and utterly WRONG! Although, to be fair, it does appear that we’re about tied for tonight’s low.
But still, I feel compelled to ask: Algor, WHERE IS YOUR GOD NOW?
There was an article in the newspaper that explained that Antarctic sea ice is increasing is because of two things. 1) Global Warming, and 2) The ozone hole. Yes, it actually blamed the increase of sea ice on the ozone hole.
I thought we stopped caring about O3 fifteen years ago, about the time, say, that OMGLOBALWARMING became the trendy thing to kill us all. Guess it’s 90′s retro, now, like all the neon clothes going around.
I’m in the lab today to help my lackey finish up some stuff before he goes off to college next week, and boy did I pick a good day to have to wear real shoes again. It’s almost down to 60 outside, which I think is the coldest it’s been here since May. It’s like we got the hottest part of the year over with in June, and now we’re cooling off in August, when it’s usually hottest.
Global warming, don’t you know. It’s the only reasonable explanation.
