One Extreme to the Other
Ya know if it wasn't for the fact that the climate change loons started off saying one thing, then another, then started trying to figure out ways to extort money from me but not from thee, I would maybe start thinking there might be something to their climate change claims.
Well that and the fact that what we are experiencing has been documented before too.
I will say this though we have been seeing the largest, widest swings in weather I can ever remember. It almost reminds me of being married to my Ex wife. Ya just never know whats going to happen from one day to the next but your pretty damned sure it ain't gonna be good.
Between Wednesday, Thursday and today I couldn't tell you how much rain we got for sure because I never emptied my gauge. My mom said she has emptied hers that goes to six inches twice already and it is filled again. 18" of rain? All I know is that for the first time I can ever remember my basement is flooded. It's always leaked a bit and there is nothing down there that can be hurt in this old house anyway but this morning I went to check and there's about six inches of water down there.
I then got called into work. Great.
I have no idea if the drain is stopped up or if the water is maybe standing over where the drain goes to or what is going on yet.
And it's still raining.
It's suppose to get down to 36 degrees tonight too.
Did I mention it was still raining?
We have gone from very Hot and dry to almost Winter cold and wet in less than two days and it's been bouncing around like that all Summer. A month with no rain and then BAM more than can be handled. Whats more confusing is it is happening in the wrong months too. Traditionally we are suppose to steadily fall in average rainfall from April on a gradual path all the way until January and then it builds back up again fast in March. Sometimes the peak comes in May instead of April but not this year. In fact it seems to go up one month then down to nothing the next these days.
Ya know I was listening to talk radio as I was driving this afternoon as they were interviewing that Doctor who is making the big bruhaha about the CDC lying to us and Ebola and all that. I don't disagree with the man at all and he made sense. I just don't think what he has to say is going to make a difference is all. Int he end it's going to be up to us sustainers and our own preps because the policies of the government will never allow them to protect us. Anyway he did say one thing profound that keeps being played back into my head.
"The earth is groaning under the weight of over population"
I will say the evidence I am seeing supports this gentleman's claim.
Keep Prepping Everyone!!!!
