It’s January and it feels like mid Spring. The woodpeckers are banging out their territory rhythms, the maples are budding out, and I wouldn’t be surprised to see the hyacinths and tulips start to peek out above the ground. The meteorologists keep saying that it will get colder, and it does, for about a day and then the temperatures start to rise and voila, back to Spring.
Now for us in the past, February is the month to look out for. It brings heavy snows and ice and all things wintery. Except for last year, when it brought nada. We need the water from snow melt, and that is not looking promising for us or any of the surrounding states. So each day is a surprise, more so than usual. What will our changing climate do to our day today? Will it bring Spring or Winter? Will it be quiet and calm or will winds with hurricane speeds be whipping over our rooftops? No one can say for sure. The one thing I do want to do is take those climate change doubters, those head in the sand ostriches, and give them a shake or two. Tell them to get their heads out of their nether regions and take a good look around. Time for us to make a change, one person at a time, while it is still possible. Still tut tuting over a favorite backyard azalea that is trying to bloom.
