What weird weather we're having, huh?
In my area of the country we're having unseasonably warm temperatures: it's been in the high sixties, low seventies for over a week and I don't see an end in sight. In fact, next week it's supposed to get up to almost eighty. Hmmm. I know I shouldn't complain. Nice weather is ...well, nice. BUT such variations from the norm do make me a bit nervous, especially in light of all the ways humans have managed to mess up the environment and the atmosphere. Makes me wonder...
