Humans don’t control nature or the weather, but we do impact them. The results of which seem increasing less hospitable. The 10 hottest years on record have occurred in the past dozen, for example.

    And you sent some of that up this way. It’s snowing today at last. My drab old yard has become a thing of beauty, and the kids and teachers get a snow day. How peaceful it all is. What a lovely way to start the winter.

    No snow here but the same blue sky. It’s cool for us (mid 50’s) so it does feel like winter. Snuck out and enjoyed the cold air and warm sun at lunch. A fine combination.
