The Snow Man
We haven’t had winter for years now. A few cold days here and there. A snow storm now and then. Highs in the 40’s predicted here all week, the first full week of February.
I look at my firewood and I have well over half of what I cut for this year left, and we probably only have a handful of days left this year when we’ll want a fire to ward off the “Nothing that is not there and the nothing that is .”
Man-made global warming? Normal variations over a geological timescale?
Seems insane to me to believe we could burn fossil fuels accumulated over millions of years in a century and have no consequences.
But whatever the reason, it seems we no longer need, at least here in northern Indiana, a mind of winter.
