No real news here, really more of a brief rant. I was hoping to get out with my kids to do fun things on their Easter break from school since I am laid off and have the time. Go figure we have to get another blizzard here in the Great Lakes Region. According to this article
(via the Drudge Report
) from AgWeb.com
, this could be the coldest April in 113 years!
I believe there are some environmental
components that have been affected by industrialization, but we do need to look at the fact that sometimes it gets really warm and really cold, and it really isn't an emergency. It may make us uncomfortable or be an inconvenience, but as Murphy of Murphy's Law fame says, "Nature is a mother." Mom has her good and bad days, but she's there to provide something. Unless mom is on a killing spree, we generally get out of her way on the bad days. It isn't newsworthy, and neither is this weather crap. If we get really, really hot or really, really cold year after year, that is a trend. Having the coldest April in 113 years doesn't sound like a trend to me.
And to those of you who say I am being to simple, maybe so. But that isn't newsworthy either. I am going to let the scientists and politicians fight it out for a while so I can spend some time with my kids. That, at least, is worthwhile, if not newsworthy.
