The good Lord provides, let us give thanks no matter what the weather is.

I think we missed spring. It's now January 101st (31 Jan., +28 Feb., +31 Mar., +11 April = 101) I'm prepping for a flooded back yard due to high snow drifts and very little sunshine back there.


It wouldn't surprise me if we skipped spring, summer, fall and went right back into winter.
Enough snow already!
Bring us some sun!

Signs of the times.

There are a lot of theories. I see these events as a sign of the times. I have been seeing this for many years and I can't wait for that event to happen.


Blame it on "Global Warming" or should I say "Climate Change".

Climate Change yes Global Warming no

Blame it on a Grand Solar Minimum. This will cause wildly extreme fluctuations in both hot and cold, but very, very long and cold winters in northern climates.
