So Which is it?
Let's get this out of the way for starters- if you think I'm going home to Tallahassee today you're misinformed. It is cold down here on Anna Maria Island, mid-forties maybe? In spite of that the sky is blue, the sun is shining, and the first word that comes to mind is beautiful. Meanwhile, the forecast for Tally calls for sleetish rain and misery so y'all have fun wit dat.
And since we are on the weather, I have a serious question for you.
Is Global Warming real? Down here in southwest FL many people have closed the book on that one. Like when we all found out who shot JR (Sue Ellen right? Or was it Bobby?) These folks laugh until they pee themselves about the GREAT GLOBAL WARMING HOAX. My reaction is to put some space between us because stupid can be dangerous, but really, what do I know? I have a degree in English and another in a casserole of social sciences. All I remember from Meteorology is staring at the clouds and drawing barometric maps full of millibars. I enjoyed all that, but it doesn't make me a Climatologist. I resent it when people try to do my job who are unqualified so I don't intend to put some Climatologist out of work. I want one to come on this blog and explain it to us, or lacking that, I'll take your versions.
Maybe these "Hoaxers" are idiots, but let's keep an open mind and be good role models, because really, what do you know about it?
Bring the heat,
