THERE'LL BE A CHANGE IN THE WEATHER

Have you noticed the changes in weather
are more sudden and abrupt these days?

The National Research Council and EPA have issued
a report which states we can expect
"more spontaneous, sudden and abrupt changes
in our regional weather which are consistent with
the 'greenhouse' warming of our climate.
This can result in heavy precipitation, periods of drought,
heat waves, sporadic cold fronts and intense storm bursts."

Photo #1 -- Early this week, our surprise snow storm
left us covered. Not forecast.

Photo #2 -- 3 days later, exact same location, sunny skies
and record-setting 83˚ heat wave.

(It's hard to know what to wear when you get up!)

"There's a change in the weather,
There's a change in the sea.
So from now on,
There'll be a change in me.
My walk will be different,
My talk not the same.
Nothin' about me
Is going to be the same."

-- Higgins & Overstreet, 1921

  2. It's incredible, the things that are happening with the weather. I don't think you can trust any forecasts. What is predicted in the morning becomes completely different in the evening.

  4. the poem is beautiful... changes in the weather are a bit frightening (annemarie is right). winter has started and it's still close to 40 degrees... maybe a storm tomorrow with flooding?...
