Another False Alarm

Greetings from central New Jersey, where our current temperature is 5 (!) glorious Global Warming degrees–twelve below zero, if you count the wind chill. As usual, we are having gale winds.

I know it has snowed pretty hard elsewhere; but here the big snowstorm that got our mayor dialing his “reverse 911” gadget to declare a snow emergency–well, it never panned out. All we got was torrential rains, followed by this devilish freeze. Lots of ice around to slip on!

We had to grocery-shop this morning, and the wind tore the list out of Patty’s hand and guess who had to chase after it? All across the parking lot, and the next parking lot, and the next one after that, practically out to the Route 1 dodgem derby before a friendly bush reached out and snagged it. I am so glad nobody has this on video…

Oh, if only we had paid a carbon tax! If only the federal government had the authority to ration toilet paper! Then none of this winter stuff would happen! We’d have this beautiful balmy weather all the time, a global climate, controlled by politicians and their tame scientists, and the only time it would ever get windy or cold would be if there was racism or something.
