So we've had this incredible week of unseasonable weather. Easter was beautiful (spent at my daughter's home in the Berkshires with my other children and grandchildren, and parents-in-law and a few of her terrific friends) and the days that have followed have only gotten warmer and warmer until today around North Jersey temperatures hit close to ninety in a lot of places, twenty to thirty degrees above normal.
But, as usual, no comment from the media, no chortling from the rightwing republicans who couldn't control their mockery of Al Gore and the majority of scientists around the world who believe in global warming when it snowed during winter several weeks ago, but are nowhere to be found now that it is unseasonably HOT!
Tomorrow it's supposed to go over ninety, only days since winter ended and weeks since we were dealing with a couple of feet of snow. But no, the rightwingers are nowhere to be heard or seen commenting on what should to them be apparent as global warming since cold weather in winter led them to claim global warming was a lie.
I must admit, my walk through the local park today was extraordinarily rewarding with the pink and white blossoms on the flowering trees that have all come out (some are even already losing their blossoms to the heat). For which I am grateful. But once again, nature seems a little confused by the unseasonable changes in temperature. And I have to admit, me too.
