No snow again    Posted 12-20-2004 at 20:02:19       [Reply]  [No Email]
I sometimes wonder if people really think the warmer weather were experiencing is really a good thing. Thats all I hear :Its such a nice day, hope it stays like this all winter." I usually tell them "yes it would be nice, may as well enjoy it now cause your house may burn down this summer. Here in my habitat ordinarly at this time there should be 3 to 4 feet of snow. Before my time it used to be 10 to 20 feet. This year such as last year I am looking at the dead grass and mud in my yard. It snowed twice for abit thus far then melted. I come from the 4 seasons. I used to enjoy them vicious winters and waitin for the skidder to plow me out. That cold weather we used to get would freeze them little critters hiding behind the bark. My firewood pile at one time was gone by spring. Now it seems I have to pack the most of it back to the back come spring. I have to clean out the chimney more often now because I cant keep a fire on all day hot. I used to look forward to spring because by that time I was half crazy due to the winter lock up. Now it seems I,m sane year round.Oh well, thanks for lettin me rattle on. May be a nice time to cruise up to Alaska. They say the water draining off the iceburgs at a rapid pace takes a nice picture nowadays.

look back a ways and there it was - i don't see anything in the weather that hasn't happened before - we just went thru some dry years here, but it never stopped shell river. when my mom walked to school on hubbard prairie during the dustbowl, for a few years she didn't need a boat to cross shell river. now we monitor things better but how do we know what kinda hole the ozone layer had 80 years ago, how do we know which big bang did what? geologists tell us we're at the end of an ice age. that's no threat to big critters.
i used to think it was lazy & greedy to build houses on flat tillable lands, but i'm old enough now to remember when that whole piece was flooded, right where the mobil homes are now. so it might be partly greed but there's plenty of stupid mixed in. :)
