Every year I tend to say, this is the hottest I remember, or coldest I remember. Now this year it is the wettest or wildest. Friend Bonnie of Organic Discourse was hit by a terrible hail storm a week or so ago. Breaking windshields, beating the house siding to shreds and ruining the roof. Golf ball size hail.
Now friend Pauline ( paulinescountrytales ) down Texas way, reports of a near miss by tornados. The news said some place in Texas reported ‘SOFTBALL’ size hail. I know Texas must do things bigger, but HAIL? WOW.
All winter we had rain and mud in Florida. Coming home and North Carolina has had rain. Floods in the Mts and in some major cities.
One thing we have now that was not available years ago is the internet (Instant news) and Satellite coverage by photos and real time.
I must admit, I fuss at the weather man a lot, but in reality they are pretty much right in their predictions. I still trust the forecast, and they are really pretty good. I just get upset when it isn’t what I want.
There is a lot of talk about the weather world wide. I am a believer that man is too small to affect the Global changes in the weather. I still think we should be prudent and conserve and not pollute. I do like wind and solar electricity, and think we should use those as much as possible. I smiled at the term ‘Wind Farm’ when we first saw the wind turbines as we traveled out west. I sorta liked that. I read where one of those big dudes could carry 1450 houses, that was amazing to me.
Just some passing thoughts.
Probably a good thing we cannot change the weather to suit us all the time.
